Jazz, Its a Wonderful Sound
This CD has been almost 25 years in the making, but there can be no doubt that the wait has been worthwhile. Six tracks were originally issued in 1977 on a very rare LP on the Starfire label. These tracks plus five more from the original master tape are included on this new release.
Originally recorded at the Morristown Jazz Festival held over three days in July 1977 at the Morris Stage in central Jersey – then the hub of jazz activity on the East coast. Warren Vache Sr. was able to call on a host of star jazzmen from the Garden State and also New York to perform at the Festival. Bassist and Musical Director, Warren Vache Sr. is a real jazz enthusiast, raised his two boys, to be musicians as well. The performance that night, included Warren Vache Sr, his two sons Warren Jr. and Allan together with Jazz greats like George Masso, Clarence Hutchenrider, Dick Wellstood, Dawes Thompson and Johnny Blowers, made for a memorable moment in a comfortable, ?at home? atmosphere which prevailed in the theater that evening. Those who love hot jazz will truly enjoy this release.
