Charlie Barnet • Town Hall Concert



Review by Matt Collar
Featuring six studio tracks and a full 1947 live show, Town Hall Jazz Concert features the late-'40s version of saxophonist Charlie Barnet's big band. Included in the band at the time were such eventual legends as trumpeters Clark Terry and Doc Severinsen along with alto saxophonist Bud Shank. Although not as well known as such swing-era contemporaries as Glenn Miller and Benny Goodman, Barnet's band was a superb swing outfit that also flirted heavily with such cutting-edge styles as bebop and the neophyte West Coast cool sound. Featured here are such solid tracks as Bunny Briggs' mellow vocal take on "Dirty Rotten Shame Blues" and the deliciously hip scat cut "Bop a Boogie." The concert recording from Town Hall in New York City is a stellar affair and really showcases how vital and swinging Barnet's band was live.

Revisión por Matt Collar
Con seis pistas de estudio y un show en vivo completo de 1947, el Town Hall Jazz Concert presenta la versión de finales de los años 40 de la gran banda del saxofonista Charlie Barnet. Incluidos en la banda en ese momento se encontraban leyendas como los trompetistas Clark Terry y Doc Severinsen junto con el saxofonista Bud Shank. Aunque no son tan conocidos como los contemporáneos de la era del swing como Glenn Miller y Benny Goodman, la banda de Barnet era un magnífico traje de swing que también coqueteaba con estilos tan vanguardistas como el bebop y el sonido fresco neófito de la costa oeste. Aquí se presentan pistas tan sólidas como la suave toma de voz de Bunny Briggs en "Dirty Rotten Shame Blues" y el delicioso corte de cadera "Bop a Boogie". La grabación del concierto del Town Hall en la ciudad de Nueva York es un asunto estelar y realmente muestra lo vital y el swing de la banda de Barnet en vivo.
