Jazz for a Lazy Day [Savoy]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Steve Futterman
This is supposedly the end of the road for 32 Jazz's wildly successful series of mood records. With titles like JAZZ FOR WHEN YOU'RE ALONE, JAZZ FOR THE OPEN ROAD, JAZZ FOR A RAINY AFTERNOON, and JAZZ FOR THE QUIET TIMES, you might expect the worst in lukewarm jazz-pop, but what you get instead is solid, mainstream jazz from the likes of Woody Shaw, Phil Woods, David "Fathead" Newman, Larry Coryell, Red Garland, and a slew of other genuine jazz heavyweights. JAZZ FOR A LAZY DAY is right in line with the earlier releases when it comes to authentic jazz. There's strong, straight-ahead tracks from Ralph Moore "Monk's Dream", Houston Person "Daydream", Sonny Stitt ...

JAZZ FOR A LAZY DAY is right in line with the earlier releases when it comes to authentic jazz. There's strong, straight-ahead tracks from Ralph Moore "Monk's Dream", Houston Person "Daydream", Sonny Stitt "Walkin', and Ricky Ford "Chelsea Bridge" and such solid players as Donald Byrd, Russell Gunn, and Wallace Roney. What all this has to do with a lazy day is anyone's guess, but you can ponder that question while marveling at Hank Jones's work on "Blue Monk" or Houston Person and Ron Carter's inspired interplay on "Blue Seven." In other words, don't sweat the mood, just dig the groove.
All Music Guide - Tim Sendra
Jazz for a Lazy Day, as released by Savoy Jazz in 2003, is basically an expanded version of the Lazy Day disc released by 32 Jazz in 1999. Instead of one disc, there are now two, which increases the total number of tracks from nine to 16. The new tracks are drawn from the same source as those on the original release, the catalog of the Muse label from the '70s, '80s, and '90s. Jazz giants like Houston Person, Hank Jones, Donald Byrd, and Bobby Hutcherson all contribute tracks and brush shoulders with jazz middleweights like Ralph Moore, Russell Gunn, and Ricky Ford. As the title suggests, the songs are relaxed and the mood is mellow. Although the songs date from well beyond jazz's peak years, the performances are uniformly solid and the disc is a nice low-priced collection of mood music.
