Album Description

Jazzed Media JM 1023 - Released 2006 TT: 57:20 After many years as one of the busiest arranger/composers in New York City, Jack Cortner has released his first CD. Jack, in my opinion, is one of the best orchestrators in the world, and he has written a beautiful album. His writing is sleek, never heavy, and the band swings like crazy! I am sure you will be taken by the music on this CD and the marvelous playing by this great big band of New York's finest. I am privileged to be prominently featured throughout, but there is also great solo playing by pianist Bill Mays, saxophonist Dave Tofani, trombonist Jim Pugh, and drummer John Riley. Fast Track also features the great lead trumpet of Bob Millikan and the terrific lead alto of Lawrence Feldman in a saxophone section that includes Jerry Dodgion and Kenny Berger. Jim Pugh leads the trombone section, and the band is driven by the marvelous rhythm section of Bill Mays, bassists Jay Anderson and Martin Wind, drummer John Riley, and guitarist Jeff Mironov.  Among the tunes are the standards, Secret Love, Softly As In A Morning Sunrise, Lover Man, Limehouse Blues, and On The Trail. Fast Track also features five original pieces written by Jack Cortner and one by me. This is a beautifully produced album with great sound by engineer Artie Friedman and beautifully written liner notes by the great Jazz writer Doug Ramsey.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
