ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Hard-bop with Fire and Soul" is how Gary Giddins describes bassist Mickey Bass’ Band. That is exactly what you will hear, when this Band launches into the new "Jazz Legacy Series", with a 'kick-off' Party for Mickey’s new record; 'Live at the Jazz Corner of the World’. Bass, who has played with a who’s who of Jazz Artists will lead his New York Powerhouse Ensemble into a swinging evening in Harlem.
Noteworthy Performances Jazz Improv. NY Magazine. Feb.2009



“It took seven years for anyone not present at Birdland on August 4, 2001 to hear the bebop played that evening by bassist Mickey Bass’ stellar quintet; Antonio Hart and Craig Handy on saxophones, the late John Hicks playing piano and Eric Allen behind the drums. But the four longish tracks on the newly released album called ‘Jazz Corner’ more than justify the wait. This “Jazz Legacy Series” gig will serve as a CD release party, with as many of the original band members as possible on hand. By the way, the cover photo depicts the original Birdland, on Broadway, just above W. 52nd Street, where Mickey was often heard in support of top jazz stars like Blakey.”
Paul Blair, Spotlight Hot House Jazz Magazine, February 2009



“This is a no-fooling-around album. Bassist and Pittsburgh native Mickey Bass leads his quintet through a four-number set recorded at ‘The Jazz corner of The World’ in New York City in 2001. The tunes, all but one by Bass, range from 16 minutes to 23 minutes in length. The band features Bass, Antonio Hart on alto sax, Craig Handy on tenor, Eric Allen on drums and, especially, pianist John Hicks. The pianist, who died in 2006, stands out particularly with his energetic backup work. The tunes include Bass's Arrangement of the well known "Soul Eyes," which provides the two saxophonists a great ballad opportunity, far from the driving "One for Trane." This is an album that captures the sizzle of a well done set.”
Bob Karlovits Tribune-Review Sunday, February 8, 2009



“Hicks performed as part of the Mickey Bass New York Powerhouse Ensemble on a 2001 date; “Live at the Jazz Corner of the World”. This live recording is the highlight of the albums discussed here; the playing is consistently excellent throughout. Along with the leader's bass, Craig Handy (tenor), Antonio Hart (alto) and Eric Allen (drums), Hicks stretches out on four lengthy tunes, the shortest running just under 17 minutes."
All About Jazz NY May 2009



"It is my belief, that this record will set a precedent for the future,
because it fulfills what has been lacking in the Music, for so long....."
