Description

The 15 tunes (64 min.) on this CD are a kind of ”greatest hits” of Fessor’s Big City Band, taken from four studio recordings made in Copenhagen between 1972-77. While rooted in New Orleans traditional jazz, the music here includes modern compositions by Charles Mingus, Cannonball Adderley and Oliver Nelson, as well as traditional numbers by Kid Ory, Sidney Bechet and Louis Armstrong. There are also three original tunes by Fessor. Ole ”Fessor” Lindgreen’s tight and tasteful arrangements give plenty of solo space to the horn players. Whether the tune is a traditional hymn like Amen, or a modern opus like Oliver Nelson’s Critic’s Choice, Fessor gives the music his irresistible, exuberant personal touch, which is why Fessor’s Big City Band is still very much alive and well today.
