Overview

Other than as leader of the ghost Glenn Miller Orchestra, clarinetist Buddy DeFranco had not recorded as a leader for a decade before cutting this adventurous set for Choice. With keyboardist Victor Feldman, guitarist John Chiodini, bassist Victor Sproles and drummer Joe Cocuzzo, DeFranco avoids bop standards and instead performs his lengthy "Threat of Freedom," Feldman's "Free Fall," a couple of standards and guitarist Jim Gillis' "Free Sail." Although DeFranco's boppish clarinet style had not changed much through the years, his ears were open to more modern ideas and he stretches himself throughout the generally challenging material.
