MUSIC REVIEW BY Chris Spector, Midwest Record

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Armed with some arts council money, curiosity and a good attitude, Bradfield set about digging into the works of Melba Liston, an arranger from back in the day who has generally been overlooked because she was a girl despite her contributions to jazz, Motown and island music. Bradfield composed all the sitting down jazz on board here trying to serve as a tour guide into the spirit of her sounds. Clearly one of those records that demanded to be made even if only to be appreciated by listeners with attention spans and like sitting down jazz, listening to this kind of gives you the feeling of what "Take the A Train" would sound like if it was expanded from a song to an album length statement with it's highlights given the chance to stretch out and shine. Quality stuff for enlightened listeners.
