Gene Ammons - Brasswind album


Size MP3 album: 1901 mb. | Size FLAC album: 1961 mb.

Brasswind is an album by saxophonist Gene Ammons recorded in late 1973 and early 1974 and released on the Prestige label. All compositions by Gene Ammons except where noted. Cántaro" (David Axelrod) – 3:58. Solitario" (Axelrod) – 5:47. Cariba" (Wes Montgomery) – 4:57.

Veteran tenor saxophonist Ammons is accompanied by a funky 12-piece band arranged by David Axelrod on this commercial but interesting release, one of his last recordings. The repertoire consists of a couple of Ammons originals, two by Axelrod, Wes Montgomery's "Cariba," Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Once I Loved," and the Monk standard "'Round Midnight. Ammons plays well and even if the arrangements are somewhat dated (George Duke's keyboards do not help), this set has its strong moments.
