Central City Sketches Central City Sketches CD (1987)
CD $11.35 Buy It  Details
American Jazz Orchestra albums Saxophone icon Benny Carter was getting on in years by the time he recorded the tracks featured on this 16-track set, released originally in 1987. Blending swing, jump blues, and bop stylings, Carter and his all-star American Jazz Orchestra burn through Carter-penned classics such as "Doozy," "Sleep," and "Easy Money." The energy is high throughout, and the orchestra's many fine soloists shine, as does Carter, who plays with as much vigor here as he does on recordings from the `40s and `50s.

Ellington Masterpieces Ellington Masterpieces CD (1988)
CD $16.89 Buy It  Details
American Jazz Orchestra CD discography With musicological thoroughness, some crack musicians and the best of intentions, John Lewis leads New York's American Jazz Orchestra in 15 transcriptions from one of Duke Ellington's prime periods (1940-43), plus "Rockin' In Rhythm" from 1930. If you had not heard the originals, you would probably come away from these reinterpretations exhilarated, because the AJO does a scrupulously vigorous job. The soloists occasionally parrot the notes of the original Ellingtonians but are also allowed at other times to go their own way, with tenor saxophonist/orchestra manager Loren Schoenberg taking on the mantle of ...
Performs The Music Of Jimmie Lunceford Performs The Music Of Jimmie Lunceford CD (1992)
CD Check Availability  Details
American Jazz Orchestra CD discography Excellent tribute work from The American Jazz Orchestra, an assemblage of masterful talents that unfortunately had to disband due to a lack of financial support. This, their final project, illuminated and presented the swinging works of neglected bandleader and composer Jimmie Lunceford. ~ Ron Wynn
