Tetrachord, 2011, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Bebop
O’s Notes: Larry is a veteran jazz pianist leading a band that plays as a trio with Paul Keller (b) and Chuck McPherson (d); a quartet or quintet adding Scott Hamilton and Noel Jewkes on tenor sax. Larry goes solo on “Star Dust” and “Pannonica”. They play eleven songs including two originals that cut across a slice of some really sweet jazz. Jewkes warms us up on “Enchantment” then Hamilton serves us a fine rendition on “How Insensitive”. We also enjoyed the spirited “Zoljko’s Blues”. This is Vuckovich’s date and he plays well in the spotlight throughout the set sharing the stage like a confident leader.
