Overview

Altoist/arranger Matt Catingub's second recording as a leader has some good, swinging music, but the recording balance is odd. Not only are the drums a bit too loud, but the soloists are sometimes off mike (even though this is a studio date). The music is mostly fairly conventional, except when Catingub's sense of humor (such as on the title cut) gets a bit out of control . Among the key soloists are altoist Catingub, valve trombonist Mike Fahn, and veteran singer Mavis Rivers (the leader's mother); the big band also includes the young Eric Marienthal, who is unfortunately not featured. Highlights include "Don't Be That Way," "Easy Living," "Jeanine," and "Donna Lee," but the strange sound quality does lower this CD reissue's appeal.
