Tribute To Ray Brown on SACD!

Jay Leonhart has been recognized as a very accomplished bass player for a long time now. He has been named the Outstanding Bassist In the Recording Industry three times and is always mentioned when the discussion turns to the outstanding . At age thirteen, while playing banjo with his brother in a dixieland band in Baltimore, Jay watched and listened to the bass player and knew that the bass was the instrument he would play forever. Since that time Jay has been privileged to play with the likes of Judy Garland, Duke Ellington, Thad Jones, Buddy Rich, Jim Hall, Peggy Lee, Mel Torme, Marian McPartland, Kenny Barron, Sting, James Taylor, Papa Joe Jones, Roy Eldridge, Jim Hall, Louie Bellson, Dick Hyman, Luciano Pavoratti, and many more.

"This stellar trio plays its way through eleven standards in nearly 66 minutes, and the result is as fresh and tasty as you could ever wish. The trio's instrumentation begs comparison with the great Oscar Peterson Trio, of whom Brown was such an important member, but this threesome plays with confidence and gusto, as if to scoff at the folly of such futile mind play. Joy and good fun exude from the disc as if from pores. Green's creativity, technique, musicianship, and general ebullience are capable of lifting one's mood faster than Prozac, while Cohn's melodic and harmonic virtuosity and vocabulary are quietly dazzling. In addition to rock-solid time and satisfying solos, Leonhart provides leadership and the glue that ensures against the episodic risk of centrifugal disintegration.

Highlights of the album include a brisk and sparkling 'Street Where You Live'; Green's awe-inspiring solo on 'No Greater Love'; Green and Cohn's counterpoint in the opening minute and again near the conclusion of 'Just in Time'; Leonhart's wistful arco bass solos in 'Alone Together' that sandwich a swinging samba beat; and the beautiful, underexposed Cole Porter ballad 'Dream Dancing.' The CD concludes with the lovely and relatively obscure 'Some Other Time' by Leonard Bernstein, after which my player is conveniently set to 'replay.'"
