Overview

Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band hits a round tripper with this swinging modern big band date, heard on a dual disc in both regular audio and DVD audio. With a talented group of musicians plus a few special guests, the leader's charts prove that the big band is hardly just a dormant museum piece in the world of jazz. Goodwin plays piano on some tracks and is in the reed section for others, though his instrument(s) are not specified. "Sing Sang Sung," featuring guest clarinetist Eddie Daniels, was inspired by the swing era hit for Benny Goodman "Sing, Sing, Sing!" though it charts its own unique path. The driving, humorous bop vehicle "Count Bubba" showcases alto saxophonist Dan Higgins and guest Tom Rainier on piano. The high energy within "Samba Del Gringo" will easily get the most subdued audience into a dancing mood with its infectious nature. Goodwin's reworking of Johann Sebastian Bach's "Two Part Invention in D Minor" primarily emphasizes section work with pianist Jim Cox taking a fine solo. "Second Chances" is a very catchy piece, though the soprano sax soloist is unidentified. Only "There's the Rub" comes across as a bit too slick. Those with stereo systems capable of taking full advantage of the 5.1 Surround Sound of the DVD audio side of the Dual Disc are in for a treat, while the DVD side also adds video, commentary, charts, photos and other information accessible on a computer.
