The Jazz Record Art Collective is proud to present a livestream performance featuring the Rarick/Torrey Quintet performing Clark Terry & Bob Brookmeyer's "The Power of Positive Swinging", released in 1965.
"In the mid-'60s, flügelhornist Clark Terry and valve trombonist Bob Brookmeyer led a quintet whose rhythm section changed now and then. As expected, there was always plenty of interplay between the fluent horns and some sly examples of their humor. This release matches Terry and Brookmeyer with pianist Roger Kellaway (a bit of a wild card who throws in a few adventurous flights here and there), bassist Bill Crow, and drummer Dave Bailey. Except for Kellaway, all of the musicians had previously played with Gerry Mulligan, and there is some of the feel of his quartet during these performances. Highlights include "Battle Hymn of the Republic," Illinois Jacquet's "The King," and the old Count Basie-associated riff tune "Just an Old Manuscript." -Scott Yanow
