Harry Goldson Plays

Bringing its singular style to small band jazz, The Harry Goldson Jazz Ensemble's latest album, Flirtations, sets out to broaden the dimensions of classic jazz. From innovative transformations of the swing-influenced music from the forties...to the exciting contemporary rhythms of Afro-Latin jazz...listening to the ensemble reminds us that good music can be good jazz...and good jazz can be good music.

The music in this album connotes a saucy flirtatious flavor and a sense of adventurous romance. The ballads are sensuous...the up-tempo pieces fiery. Each carefully selected jazz classic takes on a totally different rhythmic and harmonic form. And whatever the setting, the music always swings, sure and steady.

Flirtations (Harry's eighth album) is an album for the twenty-first century. Jazz for listening, jazz for dancing, jazz for every mood. Hopefully, other fine small bands will follow Harry's lead in presenting real music that brings back the kind of jazz everyone can enjoy. - Martin Berliner
