CD review: Ronnie Cuber: Live at Montmartre 2018: Sound, Video

If you turn down on a single year in the 70’s, for example 1977. He contributed, among other things, to on plates with Idris Muhamad, Lalo Schifrin, Patti Austin, Lee Konitz, Frank Zappa, Joe Farrell and George Benson.

He was an extremely sought-after session musician, in those years when a baritone saxophonist was needed. On this recording we meet Cuber at Jazzhus Montmartre one evening in 2017, together with Kjeld Lauritsen at Hammond, Krister Jonsson on guitar and Andreas Svendsen on drums.

It’s smoking hot Hammond jazz, where Cubers Baryton Scissors puts their feet on the loops, with a sweaty uptempo version of jazz classics Cherokee. We also get some well-made editions of Toots Thielemann Bluesette, Charlie Parker’s Au Privave, Miles Davis’ Four and Horace Silvers Silver’s Serenade. Lauritsen delivers masterpiece on Hammond organ. There is more classical jazz than souljazz in the quartet. Andreas Svendsen is another delight in the drums, where he with a profit and charm serves a stable swing.

The plate is a nice documentary of what the jazzen can constantly deliver. They have not used ages to practice together. On the other hand, they know how to deliver the item “on the spot.”
