SCCD 31795 Jack Walrath “Unsafe At Any Speed”

Francis Lo Kee of All About Jazz sums up what Jack Walrath is all about in his review of SCCD 31650 “Ballroom”:

Jack Walrath not only displays tremendous trumpet playing, a rich and varied approach to composition and wonderful band, he also puts something into this fantastic CD that’s missing from too much new jazz: a sense of fun and humor. That’s not to say that it isn’t sensitive and touching at times—”An Hour Blessed” is arguably as gorgeous as anything ever recorded….Musical food for thought with amazing jazz playing, this recording can’t be praised highly enough.”

Jack Walrath shares his inner thoughts on music and society in his liner notes for this latest album which makes quite an interesting read in addition to yet another intriguing recording.
