Review

Review Text The previously unissued music from this Oakland club date features trumpeter Jack Sheldon, guitarist Howard Roberts (on a rare jazz date), bassist Joe Mondragon, drummer Stan Levey and occasionally Jack Marshall helping out on guitar. The recording quality is okay as are Sheldon's solos but the leader spends a lot of time vocalizing (his voice is higher than it would be in the 1990s), doing dated comedy routines and in several cases performing long skits filled with erratic humor (including "Creamfinger" which is based on "Goldfinger," a record company executive's attempts to change "The Girl from Ipanema" and a reworking of the Lennon/McCartney number "She's a Woman"). Overall the humor falls flat and is certainly not worth hearing a second time. ~ Scott Yanow
