All Music Guide - Michael G. Nastos
Born in British Columbia, weaned on the jazz scene in Toronto, and currently living in New Orleans, ex-Jim Cullum sideman Brian Ogilvie plays tasteful, even-keeled traditional swing-to-bop tenor sax, clarinet, and a little alto. Cullum bandmate John Sheridan is here on piano; unsung bass hero Phil Flanigan and drummer Jeff Hamilton back him up; and trombonist/cornetist Dan Barrett shows up on six of these 15 selections. Of the larger group efforts, the spirited "And the Angels Swing," the lightly melodic "S'posin'," and the bass-led "Ducky Wucky" use clarinet and muted trombone on second-line accents and traded solos.

All Music Guide - Michael G. Nastos
Born in British Columbia, weaned on the jazz scene in Toronto, and currently living in New Orleans, ex-Jim Cullum sideman Brian Ogilvie plays tasteful, even-keeled traditional swing-to-bop tenor sax, clarinet, and a little alto. Cullum bandmate John Sheridan is here on piano; unsung bass hero Phil Flanigan and drummer Jeff Hamilton back him up; and trombonist/cornetist Dan Barrett shows up on six of these 15 selections. Of the larger group efforts, the spirited "And the Angels Swing," the lightly melodic "S'posin'," and the bass-led "Ducky Wucky" use clarinet and muted trombone on second-line accents and traded solos. The perky "'Taint What You Do It's the Way 'Cha Do It" and the clean, bright "Kansas City Stride" bring clearly into focus the tenor/trombone tandem's compatibility. Propelled by Barrett's cornet and Ogilvie's Benny Goodman-ish clarinet, "Long Live the King" is as good as swing gets. Ogilvie's tenor is also quite capable of bopping, as displayed on the title track and the hard-swinging classics "Robbins Nest" and "Twisted." Whether working in lighter stride shadings for Sheridan's original "Evening Shadows" or in unison with Flanigan during Oscar Pettiford's "Tricrotism," Ogilvie shows great flexibility. His dulcet, low-register clarinet lilts on "Nature Boy" and swings in Dixieland style for the uptempo "Together." The drum-free ballad "All Too Soon" and the classic Erroll Garner repast "Like It Is" are two more standouts. Ogilvie is a very competent player who's growing and developing in tuneful and traditional ways. His sound should appeal to most early-period mavens, and while no Coleman Hawkins or Ben Webster, he most assuredly is making the attempt to at least bask in their imposing shadows. His visage stands up well.
