A Man and His Music

by Bob Wilber
     
 
The most unusual aspect of this Bob Wilber CD is that, in addition to his usual clarinet and sopranos (both curved and straight), he also plays a bit of alto and tenor. Wilber's tenor (heard on four of the 14 numbers) is a bit of a revelation, for his thick tone is reminiscent of Coleman Hawkins. Joined by pianist Mick Pyne, guitarist

Overview

The most unusual aspect of this Bob Wilber CD is that, in addition to his usual clarinet and sopranos (both curved and straight), he also plays a bit of alto and tenor. Wilber's tenor (heard on four of the 14 numbers) is a bit of a revelation, for his thick tone is reminiscent of Coleman Hawkins. Joined by pianist Mick Pyne, guitarist Dave Cliff, bassist Dave Green and drummer Bobby Worth, Wilber performs five originals, a couple of surprisingly modern pieces ('Django" and "Lazy Afternoon"), and seven swing standards. An excellent set of mainstream jazz.
