Album Review

Really fun jazz version of 60’s & 70s TV theme shows. The arrangements come off somewhat playful at times change the tempo or add or subtract a note here & there. Thankfully through YouTube you can find most if not all of the originals. In all, a nice straight-up piano jazz album.

((((1))))) Way more lively than the somber original. Good use of scales and space in the piano and bass.
(((((2))))) Slightly more ‘down-tempo’ “weeee’ree gonna puuuut on a shoowwwwoooo” Broadway thingy with some mellow drum/bass jams inbetween.
(((((3))))) Star…date…the jazz version….of Star Trek theme…the original. Rather good piano and drumming interplay. No Shatner or transporter required.
(((((4)))) Tonight on a verrry special “Dallas”- J.R. buys a smoky lounge in 1961-Texas was never the same.
(((5))) Bassy, drum brush-laden version of the otherwise drekful tune by Paul Fackin’ Williams. Issac doesn’t give you a bloody mary in this episode but it does have some walk-about, overly long transition pieces.
((6)) “Nun-nunnnaa-nannn. We can rebuild him”…and turn this into a mellow & light as air flashback sequence. Yeesh that bass sounds dead.
(((((7))))) Playful, jazzy (of course), mid-paced version of the original. Very similar to Vincent Guaraldi “Peanuts” music.
(((8))) OK, so Herc now has a dimly lit lounge instead of a mountain to lift boulders from and…he takes up the piano and entertains the ladies?
((((9)))) Come on down! You’re the next listener to hear this pretty nice version of the game show theme. Kinda sorta reminds me of late 50’s bebop.
((10)) Way mellow interpretation of an already mellow tune.
(((11))) From the episode where Fred & Barney met Stonelonious Monk, right?
((((12)))) You big, dummah! You slowed it down & made it all piano-y. Actually, this is pretty neat, Lamont would be cool with it. Tho’ Fred, well, he’s more of an Billy Melly Jelly/Inkspots man.
