Lenny Solomon Trio: After You’ve Gone

This is not just warmed over Hot Club, but fresh, zingy, beautifully intonated jazz violin in the hands of Solomon, alongside triomates Reg Schwager on guitar and Shelly Berger on bass. Special guest Ruby Braff’s cornet does enhance the good old-timey feeling, though, as does the choice of toasty chestnuts such as “Ol’ Man River” and “After You’ve Gone” and the shimmer of Peter Appleyard’s vibes. Trio bassist Shelly Berger and guests Bob Fenton on piano and Jerry Fuller on drums keep the sweet or swinging rhythms true and take their own tasteful solos.
