Overview

Listeners who hear At the Bouquet Chorale without looking at the liner notes may be excused if they think they are hearing triple. Marty Nau is a fine bebop altoist, based in Washington, D.C., whose main playing idol has always been Phil Woods. Much to his joy, he was able to persuade Woods to be on this set along with Vince Lardear, a third altoist who also sounds a little like Woods (though not as much as Nau). Backed by a fine local rhythm section, the three altos romp on a variety of basic material and originals that often utilize standard chord changes. Some of the songs just feature two altoists in different combinations and on the closing "The Mooche," all three horn players switch to clarinets quite effectively. But the hottest numbers have all three battling with each other. It is to their great credit that Nau and Lardear hold their own with the great Phil Woods. Recommended.
