Overview

Saxophonist Jerry Vivino often plays and records with his brother, guitarist/pianist/singer Jimmy Vivino, as the Vivino Brothers, but Something Borrowed, Something Blue is an exception. Recorded during the summer of 1995, this is a CD that Jerry Vivino recorded on his own. However, Something Borrowed, Something Blue isn't much different from the recordings of the Vivino Brothers -- the saxman still favors a diverse program of jazz, blues, and R&B. The instrumentals range from jump blues ("Walking With Mr. Lee") and soul-jazz (including interpretations of Al Green's "Let's Stay Together" and Bobbie Gentry's "Ode to Billy Joe") to straight-ahead bop ("High Far and Gone," "Second Balcony Jump"). Meanwhile, the disc's vocal highlights range from Ed Alstrom's memorable spot on Amos Milburn's "Sax Shack Boogie" (a jump blues classic that's comparable to Louis Jordan's "Saturday Night Fish Fry") to the big-voiced Catherine Russell's vocal duet with Vivino on the soul item "A Rockin' Good Way (to Mess Around and Fall in Love)." Vivino is a saxophonist first and foremost, but he does provide the occasional vocal. Like the Vivino Brothers' DMP releases, Something Borrowed, Something Blue isn't amazing but is enjoyable and unpredictable.
