Reviews of This Recording

Cadence Magazine - USA
Trombonist-producer-label owner Big Bill Bissonnette loves mouldy New Orleans jazz, an idiom where the joyful spirit is more significent than having flawless musicianship. In his Around the World series, he splits CDs between three different obscure traditional bands. Vol. 3 features Gremoli from the U.S., Brazil's New Orleans Jass Band and Frances Vintage Jazzmen. Style-wise there is not a great deal of difference between the groups even though they are each from a very different geographical area.
Gremoli has has a solid and swinging rhythm section along with a front line that works well together. The strong points of the Brazilian band are trombone player Rodrigo Poletto Couto who is quite assertive in his playing and the rhythmic power of Alexandre Jose de Abreau when he plays tuba. The French band always seems to come out ahead. The music is certainly fun if not perfect and fans of 1960s revival New Orleans jazz and the George Lewis band in general will find these performances worth savoring. - Scott Yanow
