With Benny in Mind

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
In a testimonial printed on the back of the CD case, Bill Hyland (executor of the Benny Goodman estate) observes that this album looks both "backward and forward in a stylistic sense." That's baloney. This album looks resolutely and unapologetically backward in a stylistic sense, straight back to the 1930s, when Benny Goodman was making his hugely influential small-ensemble recordings. And it does so beautifully, with a clarity and grace that sometimes seem to have gone entirely missing in jazz since Goodman's death.
