Soprano Summit I Review

by Scott Yanow

The debut album by Soprano Summit features co-leaders Bob Wilber and Kenny Davern doubling on sopranos and clarinets while accompanied by pianist Dick Hyman, guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli, either George Duvivier or Milt Hinton on bass, and drummer Bobby Rosengarden. The music is often quite heated, particularly on the numbers associated with Sidney Bechet. The style falls between hot swing and Dixieland with the interplay between the reeds being a constant delight.
