Allan Vache: Clarinet Bucky Pizzarelli: Guitar John Cocuzzi: Vibes Johnny Varro: Piano Frank Tate: Bass Ed Metz Jr.: Drums Special Guest: Warren Vache Jr.: Cornet
For lovers of the clarinet a new record by Allan Vache is a jazz event. Allan is a unique player. He is absolutely fearless as an improvisor. He is one of the very few clarinetists who can play to the top of the range—high "C? and even a "D?—without piercing the listener's ears. His middle and low registers reveal a lush tone that lends his playing great warmth. He makes a sport out of improvisation. Allan's playing is as inventive -- and exciting -- as any clarinetist on the scene, today.
