Review

This is a fun set. Steen Vig, a thick-toned tenor saxophonist who also is heard on soprano, displays a flexible style that ranges from swing and Dixieland to spirited jump tunes. He used up to seven pieces on these spirited performances, which sometimes include both Mighty Flea Conners and Fessor Lindgreen on trombones and guitarist Cornell Dupree. Highlights include the debut of Sidney Bechet's previously unrecorded "Blue Boat," Conners' "The Flea Is Jumping," "Taps Miller" and Clarence Williams' "Kansas City Man Blues." It is sad, listening to the joy of the music, to realize that Vig would pass away, on Jan. 1, 1994 when he was just 49. ~ Scott Yanow
