A generous helping of well-cooked nouveau swing by David Berger's undeniably talented Sultans of Swing that's easy to swallow but doesn't sharpen one's craving for more of the same.

Berger arranged everything except the album's bonus track, Duke Ellington / Mildred Hill's "Birthday Jam," which he transcribed. While the charts are admirable, the music itself is on the whole less than exhilarating, especially the eight vocals (on thirteen tracks), half a dozen by Aria Hendricks, the others by trombonist Wayne Goodman ("Oops, My Bad!") and a trio comprised of Goodman, saxophonist Matt Hong and trumpeter Brian Pareschi ("Exactly Like You"). There are some engaging selections ("Good Queen Bess," "Ya Gotta Live It," for example) but they are counterbalanced by too many others that are no better than pedestrian.

Even so, the Sultans are seasoned pros who play well as a unit and solo capably whenever asked to stand and deliver. Trumpeters Steve Bernstein and Irv Grossman, clarinetist Dan Block, alto JerryDodgion and trombonist Noah Bless are splendid on Johnny Hodges—Lunceford—like "Good Queen Bess," Dodgion, Block, Pareschi and trombonist Joel Helleny likewise on Berger's "Ya Gotta Live It." Grossman, by the way, sounds like he's been memorizing pages from the Clark Terry Manual of Jazz Improvisation. Speaking of solos, no less than thirteen of the Sultans have their say on the bouncy "Birthday Jam" (subtitled "Happy Birthday Stompy Jones"). ~Jack Bowers
