The Buck Clayton Legacy: Encore Live

The arrangements, the compositions, and the joy of Buck Clayton's playing are celebrated during this live concert. The music looks back toward both the trumpeter's work as a member of Count Basie's Orchestra and his legendary Columbia jam sessions of the 1950s. The interesting mainstream group mixes together a few lesser-known Europeans -- trombonist Jerry Tilitz, Antti Sarpila on reeds, pianist Brian Dee and bassist Len Skeat -- with trumpeter/arranger Randy Sandke (who does a superb job of taking Clayton's place), the tenors of Harry Allan and Danny Moss, baritonist Scott Robinson and drummer Butch Miles. The music really swings and has among its many highlights "All the Cats Join In," "Robbins Nest," "Jumpin' at the Woodside" and "Rock-A-Bye Basie."
