This is a pairing of two tenor saxophonists not known for their work on that instrument. Tommy Newsom played mostly alto in the Tonight Show Big Band, while Peplowski is a prominent clarinetist, with his own groups and with Mel Torm?. Together they play delightful mainstream jazz, mostly standards, in as mellifluous a manner as one could ever need. Consistent throughout, in instrumentation and musical stance, they trade melodies in riffs like good conversation, play beautifully in unison, and are respectful in not stepping on toes. Newsom is quite direct and forward, clipping off bebop phrases with precision and dexterity. Peplowski adds wisps of air to his solos, deft, meaningful, a bit staggered at times. Both are undeniably swinging, and the complementary underpinnings of large-body acoustic guitarist Mike Peters and economical yet simmering pianist Ben Aronov give the frontmen plenty of space to freewheel at will. The title track and Buck Clayton's "It's Sand Man" show the sextet at its cooperative best, while each tenor gets individual space -- Newsom with rhythm section on the poignant "Skylark," Peplowski during a tender version of "I'll Close My Eyes." There's some Ellington, Irving Berlin, a take on Horace Silver's "Opus de Funk," and a little wailing on "Lover, Come Back to Me," as well as an Aronov original among the 11 selections. Newsom and Peplowski are clearly having a good time. They perfectly represent the feeling of true partnership on this professional set of delightful classic jazz. Highly recommended. ~ Michael G. Nastos
Professional Reviews
JazzTimes (1-2/00, pp.115-6) - "...if frequent excursions into the altissimo register, squawking multiphonics, and mind-numbing, assault-gun-like rapidity of notes presently constitute your definition of saxophone artistry, prepare to have your tastes broadened..."
