Album Notes and Credits


Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Personnel: Herb Geller (soprano saxophone, alto saxophone); Martien Oster (guitar); Martin Wind (double bass, bass guitar); Hans Braber (drums).
Muze PNote Additional personnel: Don Friedman (piano).
Muze PNote Veteran altoist Herb Geller, who doubles on soprano, performs 13 songs that originated in Hollywood films on this CD. The underrated "Call Me Irresponsible" is taken as a duet with bassist Martin Wind while Geller duets with pianist Don Friedman on David Raskin's always-magnificent "The Bad and the Beautiful." The tunes feature the saxophonist with either a three- or four-piece rhythm section. Geller, who seems to have found the Fountain of Youth in Europe, sounds quite ageless, playing with power, creativity, and joy. In addition to a few standards, such pieces as "Troubled Waters," "Pawnbroker Theme," and a medley of "Taxi Driver" and "Marnie" are effectively revived. Respect is paid to each of the melodies before Geller and Friedman play melodic solos that derive logically from the themes. Recommended. ~ Scott Yanow

Professional Reviews

JazzTimes (p.112)
- "The most swinging track in the set comes from THE WIZARD OF OZ, 'Ding Dong the Witch Is Dead'....Pianist Don Friedman contributes an excellent solo and Gellar's alto sounds more hard-edged than usual..."
