Album

Nat Pierce's only date as a leader during the 1958-1976 period, this interesting big-band set was not released until 1980. In addition to the influence of Count Basie and the Woody Herman Orchestra, Pierce hints at Duke Ellington on the three-part The Ballad of Jazz Street, which takes up all of side two of the album.

About this release. CD Album. CD Single. CD Maxi. page 1, 1. nat pierce orchestra 4. Here is the Nat Pierce Orchestra-The Ballad of Jazz Street. The vinyl is in VG condition PLAY GRADED. The jacket is in G to VG condition. The opener is an original by Nat Pierce reminding me somewhat of a Neal Hefti composition, but more restrained and elegant swing in a style of the late '30s or early 40's. Melancholy Baby furthers that impression. who plays that anymore. but it comes off well with some nice alto sax by Dick Meldonian. The mood and tempo changes with Black Jack, a composition by Gene Roland who did so many things for Stan Kenton. Nat Pierce Orchestra: Lonesome Crowd, Kinda Girl, Indian Summer и другие песни. The personnel of Pierce's orchestra is particularly intriguing, for it includes trumpeters Clark Terry, Burt Collins, and Danny Stiles, trombonists Eddie Bert and Jimmy Cleveland, altoist Dick Meldonian and Paul Quinichette, and Paul Gonsalves and Dick Hafer.
