JAZZ: In 1959, Baritone saxophonist Virgil Gonsalves co-produced this recording with Dave Hubert for release on the Omega label. Recorded in San Francisco, it featured one of the finest modern jazz big bands to come out of the Bay Area. Among its members were, Leo Wright, Junior Mance and Bay area favorites Mike Downs and Danny Patiris. The program is divided between big band and sextet. Many of the big band arrangements are by Jerry Cournoyer who appears to be the co-leader on the big band sides. The recording features the wide stereo sound favored by Omega. On this session, Virgil Gonsalves plays straight ahead modern jazz, certainly post-bop but not quite hard bop. The big band is tight and the charts are excellent. The sextet is equally up-to-date, featuring some of the best players in San Francisco. The liner notes, by legendary disk jockey and jazz authority Johnny Adams, are a great reminder that the Beat era was what was happening in Northern California in 1959. The better soloists each get their turn with excellent features for Leo Wright, Danny Patiris, Mike Downs, Junior Mance, Merrill Hoover and Virgil Gonsalves. A fine recording and a great example of authentic Bay area modern jazz, that everyone will enjoy.

JAZZ: Pianist Helio Alves generates a special flare and excitement whether playing the music of his native Brazil or straight-ahead jazz. As a follow-up to his first Reservoir release, "Trios" (RES #156), which featured him in both spheres, "Portrait In Black And White" focuses on the straight-ahead. Accompanied by bassist Santi Debriano, and drummer Matt Wilson, Alves presents a balanced mix of originals (listen to the opener "Frenzy" for some no nonsense, virtuoso piano playing) and standards which include an exciting, edgy transformation of "Angel Eyes," and Jobim's "Portrait In Black And White." Steve Swallow's composition "Falling Grace" deserves special mention with the pianist embarking on a graceful, imaginative flight of improvisational mastery.
