Thrilling thirteen piece big band jazz David Angel Jazz Ensemble – Out on the Coast

Thrilling thirteen piece big band jazz David Angel Jazz Ensemble – OUT ON THE COAST:   Listeners who just love it lively will welcome this new thrilling thirteen piece big band jazz release with open ears… it’s a TRIPLE-CD, so you will be fully occupied for a few hours (I suggest you listen to one CD at a time, so you can savor each and every note).

David arranged or composed all 22 tunes, and even played tenor sax… the players were Phil Feather: alto sax, sop. sax, piccolo, flute, alto flute; Gene Cipriano “Cip”: alto sax. sop. sax, clarinet; Jim Quam: tenor sax, clarinet; Tom Peterson tenor sax, flute, alto flute; Bob Carr: baritone sax, bass clarinet; Jonathan Dane: trumpet, flugel horn; Ron Stout: trumpet, flugel horn; Stephanie O’Keefe: horn; Scott Whitfield, trombone; Jim Self: tuba, bass trombone; John Chiodini: jazz guitar; Susan Quam, string bass and Paul Kreibich: drums… and they will dazzle you on tunes like the jumpin’ “Ah Rite!“… full-bodied sound and high-energy playing from each and every one of them make this a tune that jazz DJ’s all across the globe will be plugging in regularly!

For a more mellow setting, you’ll find the band’s performance of Billy Strayhorn’s “A Flower is A Lovesome Thing” to be totally rewarding… what really stands out on this one is the exquisite pacing… not one note is rushed, but the song will hold you absolutely spellbound.

Tuba and bass trombone meister Jim Self pulled all this together, and I can tell you right now that you won’t find a more engaging album in 2021 when it comes to jazz ensembles… that was especially true for my personal favorite of the 22 tunes offered up, the 14:50 “Moonlight“… a truly amazing performance!

I give David and all the players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99 for this huge success.  Get more information on Jim’s BassettHoundMusic page for the release.                         Rotcod Zzaj
