Kornhaus Theater, Baden 1969 Review

by Scott Yanow

Recorded just four years before his death, this CD in 1997 released for the first time a Swiss concert putting the focus on the great (if underrated) clarinetist Albert Nicholas, who is heard throughout in top form. Nicholas plays his usual repertoire of the era, standards from the 1920s and '30s, but is well showcased as the only horn in a quartet also including pianist Henri Chaix, bassist Alain du Bois, and drummer Romano Cavicchiolo. Highlights include "Rosetta," "Please Don't Talk About Me When You're Gone," "Rose Room," and "I Found a New Baby."
