MG-20260: An Adventure In Sound - Reeds In Hi-Fi / Pete Rugolo

Matrix Number : SIDE-A MG20260A MS1    MSI    A1    I
SIDE-B MG20260B MS1    MSI    A1    I



Comments

Equivalent release: Mercury SR-60039 (stereo).
They contains the same tunes, but the album title is slightly different.

Inside The Groove

As the title says, Reeds version of the series of “Sound Adventures” by Pete Rugolo and his pals.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

Pete Rugolo, a famous Stan Kenton band's arranger, joined to Mercury records to produce/supervise various recordings. Along with nice jobs as a producer/superviser, he left a number of his own recordings, most of which were taken in a form of Kenton Orchestra-like jazzy big band.

This “Reeds” album has its brother - the “Brass” album. A fine pair of example of how Pete Rugolo's aggressive and experimental but comfortable arrangements sounds so fine.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

8 out of 10
