Back Room Romp

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Although pianist Keith Ingham and tenor-saxophonist Harry Allen are billed as co-leaders, the main star of these 14 swing-based tunes is Scott Robinson who is well showcased on clarinet, soprano and baritone. Trumpeter Peter Ecklund also gets some good spots and the rhythm section guitarist James Chirillo, bassist Murray Wall and drummer Jackie Williams is perfect for this style of music. The emphasis is on obscure songs played in the vein of Duke Ellington's small groups of the 1930s and there are plenty of heated moments along with arranged ensembles. Well worth investigating.
