Description:
"A rip-roaring album that not only proves Vache«s versatility as a clarinetist, but also asserts the continuing vitality of creative mainstream jazz. Vache ranges from leading a sextet with a classic trad jazz front line of cornet, clarinet and trombone plus rhythm section all the way doen to drumless duo and trio tracks. And along the way he finds creative ways with arrangements and repertoire ranging from New Orleans classic style to New Orleans R&B shuffle, uptempo swing to slow ballads, as welll as songs ranging from pop and jazz standards to a Mexican song and a chart-topping pop hit from the Sixties." - George Kanzler, contributing editor, Hothouse Jazz Magazine; member, National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences; retired jazz and arts edito for the Newark Star Ledger
