Play That Song: Live at the 1994 Floating Festival

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
The most unusual aspect to this Terry Gibbs quartet date which was recorded live at the 1994 Floating Jazz Festival on board the S.S. Norway is that seven of the nine selections are originals by the vibraphonist-leader.

Also in the "cooking" category are the quartet's renditions of Artie Shaw's "Moon Ray" the clarinetist's most famous original and "Limehouse Blues."

Gibbs and Caine blend together well while never getting in each other's way while bassist Boris Koslo and drummer Gerry Gibbs are excellent in support. Recommended.
