Swings Cohn & Kahn

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Elliot Lawrence, who was born in 1925, formed a big band at the very end of the swing era, much too late to make a strong impression. A fine pianist/arranger/composer, Lawrence primarily wrote for radio and television. In the 1950s he recorded quite frequently for such labels as Decca, King, Columbia, Groove, Vik, Camden, and, particularly, Fantasy, cutting six records for the latter label during 1955-1957 with big bands.

Elliot Lawrence, who was born in 1925, formed a big band at the very end of the swing era, much too late to make a strong impression. A fine pianist/arranger/composer, Lawrence primarily wrote for radio and television. In the 1950s he recorded quite frequently for such labels as Decca, King, Columbia, Groove, Vik, Camden, and, particularly, Fantasy, cutting six records for the latter label during 1955-1957 with big bands. This CD has all of the music from the LP Swinging at the Steel Pier, five cuts from Plays Tiny Kahn and Johnny Mandel Arrangements just the Kahn charts, and a few selections from Plays for Swinging Dancers and Dream on...Dance On. The music, which features arrangements by Tiny Kahn, Al Cohn, Johnny Mandel, and Gerry Mulligan, is essentially updated swing along with some melodic dance music. Among the key soloists along the way are Zoot Sims whose tenor is heard on the first five selections, Al Cohn, trumpeter Nick Travis, trombonist Eddie Bert, and Lawrence himself, who sometimes sounds a little like Claude Thornhill. The middle-of-the-road music is not too adventurous but does move nicely and is certainly quite accessible.
