Artist: Gelato, Ray Giants
Description:
Ray Gelato Giants: Ray Gelato (vocals, tenor saxophone); Al Nicholls (alto & tenor saxophones); Enrico Tomasso (trumpet); Jeff Williams (trombone); Richard Busiakiewicz (piano); Clark Kent (acoustic bass); Allan Cox (drums). Personnel: Ray Gelato (vocals, tenor saxophone); Claire Martin (vocals); Al Nicholls (alto saxophone, tenor saxophone); Enrico Tomasso, Dave Priseman (trumpet); Dave Keech, Jeff Williams (trombone); Richard Busiakiewicz (piano); Clark Kent (double bass); John Piper, Allan Cox (drums). Recording information: metropolis Studios, London, England (01/13/1995/01/14/1995). Unknown Contributor Role: Claire Martin . Arrangers: Paul Cook ; Ray Gelato. Ray Gelato, a key member of the British jump band the Chevalier Brothers during 1982-1988, plays tenor sax solos in the tradition of Illinois Jacqwuet and Charlie Ventura, in addition to taking vocals. In the Ray Gelato Giants, the role model is clearly Louis Prima, although with touches of Frank Sinatra, heated swing, and bits of bebop. Their debut record, The Full Flavour, features a hot septet (with trumpeter Dave Priseman, trombonist Dave Keech, and Al Nichools on tenor and alto) playing some Prima (including "That Old Black Magic" and a medley of "Basin Street Blues" and "Sleepy Time Down South"), Charlie Ventura ("Dark Eyes"), Dean Martin, Nat "King" Cole, and heated swing ("Apple Honey"). There are also two fine vocals by Claire Martin and a rare up-tempo version of "As Time Goes By." One of the best retro-swing releases of the mid-'90s. ~ Scott Yanow
