The Brothers Candoli Sextet

Recordings by brothers who play the identical instrument are fairly rarein jazz, but trumpeters Conte and Pete Candoli made several valuable records together without sibling rivalry. The ten selections on this album draw favorites from swing, bop, cool, and hard bop, with an excellent rhythm section (pianist Jimmy Rowles, guitarist Howard Roberts, bassist Max Bennett, and drummer Frank Capp) complementing the brothers. The high points include a wild "Caravan," with an exotic vamp by Rowles (as well as a daring solo) in support of their unison lines, the catchy blues "Splanky" from Count Basie's band book (with terrific call and response between the trumpeters), and a funny arrangement of Charlie Parker's "Ah-Leu-Cha" that has a disguised Latin introduction. Roberts and Rowles come to the forefront with the muted trumpets playing riffs behind them in "Doodlin'." Rowles' brilliant scoring of "Willow Weep for Me" has a sassy air rather than the typical bittersweet flavor. This album was originally recorded for Mercury, and after being out of print for decades it was reissued on CD by Universal in Japan.

Thank you, Melanchthon.
It's easier to wait for shifting the hour and dload through RS than the others, full of traps to introduce garbage on computer. Sorry for that.
