Performer Notes
  • Performers: Gremoli, New Orleans Jazz Band, The Vintage Jazzmen.
  • Trombonist/producer/label owner Big Bill Bissonnette loves moldy New Orleans jazz, an idiom where the joyful spirit is more significant than having flawless musicianship. In his "Around the World" series, he splits CDs between three different obscure trad jazz bands. Vol. III features Gremoli from California, Brazil's New Orleans Jass Band and France's Vintage Jazzmen. Style-wise there is not a great deal of difference between the groups even though they are each from a very different geographic area. Gremoli has a solid and swinging rhythm section along with a front line that, although occasionally slipping out of tune, works well together. The strong points of the Brazilian band are trombonist Rodrigo Poletto Couto (who is quite assertive in his playing) and the rhythmic power of Alexandre Jose de Abreau when he plays tuba. The French band is the weakest of the three, occasionally bordering on getting lost (such as during "Wolverine Blues") but always seeming to come out ahead. The music is certainly fun if not perfect and fans of 1960s revival New Orleans jazz and the George Lewis band in general will find these performances worth savoring. Highlights include "Sing On," "Apple Blossom Time," "Old Gray Bonnet," "Girl of My Dreams" and "It's Jam Up." ~ Scott Yanow
