Just Jammin"

by Chuck Hedges

The genre is swinging chamber jazz, possibly what the pioneering Benny Goodman sextet might sound like today, if BG, Lionel Hampton, Teddy Wilson, et al, were still alive and playing. Amazingly, nothing here sounds dated. These cats have stayed current.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Chuck Hedges - Clarinet Dave Sullivan - Guitar
Gary Meisner - Piano Henry (Bucky) Buckwalter - Vibes
Mike Britz - Bass Andy LoDuca - Drums

The genre is swinging chamber jazz, possibly what the pioneering Benny Goodman sextet might sound like today, if BG, Lionel Hampton, Teddy Wilson, et al, were still alive and playing. Amazingly, nothing here sounds dated. These cats have stayed current.
Leader, Chuck Hedges is featured, as a musician of high international standing. A Milwaukee area resident, Hedges has long commuted to his former Chicago home for a regular gig Monday Evenings 5:00 - 8:30 pm at Andy's. Several times a year, he flies to concerts and/or record dates around the world.
For years, Chuck Hedges has wanted to record with his "Milwaukee Connection." This CD'S producer, Hedges' fan and friend, Dave Rampacek, has afforded them, and us, this splendid opportunity, which Arbors Records has released. You'll note that its 75 minutes comes with just 11 tunes. That means that the boys take their time stretching out on solos, which contributes to the CD'S relaxed Just Jaminin' feeling. Except for the Ellington ballad Solitude, which runs a little over three minutes, each number goes on for five minutes plus. Another ballad, Victor Young's fine Ghost of a Chance, receives a 10-minute treatment, with some especially contemplative solos. - Notes by Mike Drew -
