Beau Hunks Saxophone SoctetteBeau Hunks Saxophone Soctette ... CD
Basta (Netherlands), Late 30s/1999. Used ... $9.99
A great set of new recordings by this Dutch jazz combo dedicated to reproducing the wilder saxophone sounds of the early swing era! The Beau Hunks group focuses here on a tasty batch of material by Raymond Scott, Irving Berlin, Bix Beiderbecke, and other 30s composers – and the set features 7 rare arrangments done for Paul Whiteman's late 30's Sax Soc-tette. There's a very strong, very cartoony horn sound right up front – and tracks include "Crinoline Days", "What'll I Do?", "In A Mist", "Do Something", and "The Toy Trumpet". Great package, too! CD

✨✧ Metropole Orchestra feat Beau Hunks SaxtetteRaymond Scott – The Chesterfield Arrangements 1937 to 1938 ... CD
Basta (Netherlands), Late 30s/1999. Used ... $5.99
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

✨✧ Raymond ScottMicrophone Music ... CD
Basta, Late 30s. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Vintage work by Raymond Scott – the maestro of magical music, caught here in the prime of his swing years! The set features 2 CDs worth of material – all sides from the late 30s, performed by Scott with a small group that includes tenor, clarinet, percussion, trumpet, bass, and celeste! The style is similar to some of Scott's more familiar cartoon compositions – upbeat, lively, frenetic, jazzy, and with lots of cool little touches. The instrumentation looks conventional at the outset, but the sounds that Scott gets out of the group are wonderful – as whimsical as any 30s Warner Brothers cartoon, and perhaps even more so, as there's a lot more here left to the imagination! Titles include "A Little Bit Of Rigoletto", "Egyptian Barn Dance", "The Penguin", "War Dance For Wooden Indians", "Girl At The Typewriter", "Microphone Music", and "Tobacco Auctioneer". 40 tracks in all – with some great notes too!

XMarsXXMarsX ... CD
Atavistic, 2002. Used ... $1.99
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
