Kubis, Tom – “Fast Cars & Fascinating Women” – [Sea Breeze]
Oh ! It’s that multi-talented guy: Steve Allen, again. He’s not just a
humorist and writer, he actually writes songs ! Over 6000 of them ! He even
sings them ! (Well, fortunately only ONCE on this record.)
The Tom Kubris Big Band is one of those Southern California studio / put –
together for the session organizations, but, hey! The solos are solid, the
arrangements are first rate, and only a few of the songs fall into that
“dinner jazz” category (marked ICK), so I give it a good rating.
