This CD should reside on the go-to-shelf of any Jazz collection.
Looking for a mood setter to start a night of jazz? You found it with the Motor City Jazz Octet's, "Played in Detroit". Track one; "Runferyerlife" by Grammy award winner Bob Mintzer (The Yellowjackets) lets you know 30 seconds into the number you're on the right track for Jazz. When bandleader Joe Syrian takes a drum solo everyone in the room will take notice.
Track two, "Fancy Meetin' Karen" invokes imagery of film noir and is the perfect complement to the cover photography featuring the Detroit skyline.
Guest artists George Benson (who has performed, it seems with everyone from Louis Armstrong to Stevie Wonder) and Rick Margitza (with three albums in Billboard’s top 20 jazz charts) enhances this collection of great jazz.
This CD should reside on the go-to-shelf of any Jazz collection.
Highly recommended!


Played in Detroit
I really liked the first CD, which was North Coast Jazz, but of the two this is my favorite. There is a variety of tunes and tempos. It has is something for all of my moods so I listen to it often. I am glad to have it.
