The modern jazz group freiburg mit raymond court - weekend - sunday


Lucky Thompson was very active in the recording studios during his 1956 visit to France; this CD in Verve's attractive Jazz in Paris reissue series features the big toned tenor saxophonist with both a quartet and a tentet. Thompson 's lush sound in sensitive interpretations of "The Man I Love" and the less familiar ballad "There's No You" brings Ben Webster to mind. Thompson 's original "Tight Squeeze" is an up-tempo jump blues which showcases his harder blowing, more boppish side; while the venerable standard "Gone With the Wind" is a brisk swinger. Pianist Henri Renaud leads the potent rhythm section. The tentet session is less memorable. All of the songs were written by Renaud , and while they are comparable to much of the output of so-called "cool school" of the period, they tend to be a little too conservative. Still, Thompson 's playing is at a high label throughout both dates, so bop fans should invest in this enjoyable CD.
