"Otra Vez Alvarez" by Dick Reynolds

From the album

Music & Friends (Origin Records) by Dick Reynolds

Editor's Comments

Bright start, caffeinated big band in a race to the end. Great for 60s films and 'Morecambe and Wise' jazz.

About the track

Through the jingle house he co-founded in the 1960s, composer, pianist, arranger and producer Dick Reynolds ruled Chicago's commercial recording scene throughout its heyday, supplying the world with thousands of melodies and slogans, many still recognized today. By then, he had also been the house pianist at the famed Mr. Kelly's for over a decade, where he accompanied all the greats of the period including Mel Torme, Sarah Vaughn, and Carmen McRae. With "Music & Friends," Reynolds steps back into the studio he left at retirement in 1996, creating a joyous, hard-swinging session with a reassembled band of many of the musicians he worked with over the years, including Howard Levy, Mark Colby, Mike Smith, Kelly Sill, and many more of Chicago's finest.
