Perform the Music of Stewart Dirk Fischer

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
While it has been the rage for some time for every twenty-something musician who gets a record date to concentrate on original material, many of them would be wise to look for neglected compositions by veteran musicians like Stewart "Dirk" Fischer. Fischer, whose career has been devoted to jazz education rather than recording, is the brother of the well-known pianist Clare Fischer. He contributed ten originals and all of the arrangements for this big-band date led by trumpeter and fl├╝gelhornist George Stone who also plays piano and vibes on the session.

All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
While it has been the rage for some time for every twenty-something musician who gets a record date to concentrate on original material, many of them would be wise to look for neglected compositions by veteran musicians like Stewart "Dirk" Fischer. Fischer, whose career has been devoted to jazz education rather than recording, is the brother of the well-known pianist Clare Fischer. He contributed ten originals and all of the arrangements for this big-band date led by trumpeter and fl├╝gelhornist George Stone who also plays piano and vibes on the session. The players rise to challenge of Fischer's demanding charts, which feature a number of talented young musicians, along with seasoned artists such as Gary Foster. The swanky "Hamilton Allen Esquire" has a fine solo by guitarist Steve Gregory and a sizzling effort by tenor saxophonist Bill Liston. The well-named "Plucky" puts the spotlight on bassist Trey Henry, whose playing bring to mind the late Ray Brown. "Donde" is a very deliberate Latin jazz number, featuring Clare Fischer on acoustic piano. Fischer's sense of humor becomes obvious in "Hurry Home," a very relaxed miniature ballad that one could easily imagine hearing near the end of a gig, as the tired musicians are thinking about making their way back to their respective abodes. Fischer's arrangements of works by well-known jazz musicians also merit high praise. Benny Golson's "Whisper Not" is full of imaginative voicings for the horns. Blue Mitchell's "Melody for Thelma" is a breezy but funky chart, with Clare Fischer making a guest appearance on electric piano, while Victor Feldman's "Let Me Count the Ways" is a showcase for soprano saxophonist Gene Burkett in a brisk bossa nova setting. Recommended for fans of modern big bands.
