Background for this listing -
It started in 1978 when a young musician named David Chesky found himself frustrated with the lack of artistic control afforded by his position. He asked his brother Norman if he thought they should start a record company. The rest is history!

Jazz trumpeter Jon Faddis takes a break from his duties as Music Director of the Carnegie Hall Jazz Band to record a satiny, swinging album that celebrates the old and the new. Chesky Records proudly presents Remembrances, a record showcasing the multi-faceted Mr. Faddis with support from a hand-picked fourteen-piece jazz orchestra.

Fans familiar with Mr. Faddis' storming, take-no-prisoners style will find Remembrances a revelation. Leading with Duke Ellington's timeless Sophisticated Lady, Mr. Faddis plays pretty for the people, displaying a confidence that results from his virtuosity upon the instrument he has played since the tender age of eight and through his tenure with jazz legend Dizzy Gillespie. Conductor Carlos Franzetti has arranged the ten selections with emphasis on the saxes and winds, resulting in a lush, glowing sound recalling the urbanity of Count Basie's glory days. With featured players like David Hazeltine on piano and Portraits Of Cuba Grammy-winner Paquito D'Rivera, Jon Faddis and Co. swing and strut through a dealer's choice of time-honored jazz, including compositions by John Coltrane, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, and Dave and Iola Brubeck.

This is an unusual date for Jon Faddis. Doubling on flugelhorn, Faddis avoids his upper register and performs ballads while backed by an ensemble arranged by Carlos Franzetti. The backup group consists of five reeds, trombone, a french horn, an occasional oboe or English horn player and a rhythm section. Faddis plays lyrically throughout but there are no exciting or stirring moments to be heard on the ten selections which include "Sophisticated Lady," "Speak Like a Child" "In Your Own Sweet Way" and a medium-tempo "Goodbye." A well-played and professionally arranged program but the overall results are rather forgettable. ~ Scott Yanow
