FORMAN, BRUCE
$14.98
Forman on The Job

Bruce Forman is a bebop guitarist of exceptional talent, and with this collection of outstanding performances he generates the kind of cool that can only be found in a hot smoky room. Forman on the Job features the incomparable Joe Henderson on sax, and the steel drums of Andy Narell, on a selection of material that showcases versatility. To the pulse of driving rhythms on a tune such as A Night in Tunisia, Henderson and Forman soar in improvisatory excellence, and a standard such as People Will Say Were In Love (which includes some fine arco work by John Clayton, Jr.) stands next to Formans melodic Lullaby. Through it all, Formans guitar playing shows the characteristic insight and artistry that has caused Barney Kessel to call him one of the great lights of our age right now, on guitar. Joe Henderson (saxophone), Andy Narell (steel drums), John Santos (percussion), John Clayton, Jr. (bass), Vince Lateano (drums), Mark Levine (piano)

REVIEWS and QUOTES
Bruce Forman returns with a searing follow-up to his previous bubbling-under release, Still of the Night. Plenty of swing here, and the friendly musical fire blasts often and tirelessly.  The Gavin Report

Forman has recorded another great date with some of the best musicians in the business. &a good mixture of selections and treatment from one of the hardest swinging guitarists around to date, this recording is a welcome change.  Tee Carson, California Jazz Now

Formans latest proves that he plays straight-ahead bebop-laced jazz as well as any guitarist ever. Creative, fluent, soulful, constantly listening to whats going on around him, he never plays by the numbers.  Jim Ferguson, Guitar Player Magazine

Formans best recording (of many) to date.  Philip Elwood, San Francisco Examiner
