Metropole Orchestra feat Beau Hunks SaxtetteRaymond Scott – The Chesterfield Arrangements 1937 to 1938 ... CD
Basta (Netherlands), Late 30s/1999. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A great set of arrangements by the legendary Raymond Scott – by now a household name, thanks to his legendary work on classic cartoons, and with early electronics! This new recording features tracks that Scott wrote for the Paul Whiteman orchestra during the time they were sponsored by Chesterfield Cigarettes – and the music has the same wild sound of his cartoon work (issued more popularly a few years ago on CD). The music is played by the Metropole Orchestra, with horn parts handled by the razor-sharp Beau Hunks Saxtette, who are perfect interpreters of the wild whimsy of Scott's original vision. Titles include "War Dance For Wooden Indians", "Bumpy Weather Over Newark", "Siberian Sleighride", "Powerhouse", and "Mexican Jumping Bean". CD

XMarsXXMarsX ... CD
Atavistic, 2002. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A Chicago avant jazz supergroup – featuring Mars Williams on saxes, Kent Kessler on bass, Greg Suran on guitar, Wayne Kramer on guitar, David Suycott on drums and effects, and Fred Lonberg-Holm on cello. The approach here certainly shows a lot of Williams' sides – fast and frenetic jamming, slower and more soulful playing – with an overall approach that's tightly scripted, and not nearly as free as you might expect. Titles include "Unstuck", "The Finger", "The Worm", "Punch The Monkey", "Floaty", and "Rat Bastard". CD
