Picks and Pans Review: Jam at Sandy's

UPDATED 03/01/1982 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 03/01/1982 at 01:00 AM EST

Michal Urbaniak

Containing some nice reflections on some old standards—Just Friends, Body and Soul, Autumn Leaves and Quiet Nights—-this LP by violinist Urbaniak, guitarist Gene Bertoncini and bassist Mike Moore is part of a new no-frills package issued by the young JAM label. Called the Jazzamerica 5000 Series, it is priced at $5.98 an album—a relative bargain these days—and features small groups fronted by such names as the late trumpeter Blue Mitchell, guitarist John Abercrombie, reed man Lew Tabackin and pianist Toshiko Akiyoshi. The jazz is first-rate; the whole project might be looked at as improvisations on the consumer price index.
