It is still relatively rare for a son to follow his father on an identical instrument and reach an equal level of expertise, but guitarist Doug Raney (son of the late Jimmy Raney) is one of the few. This accomplished bopper leads a trio date with bassist Jay Anderson and drummer Billy Hart, exploring standards of the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s. His intense up-tempo reworking of Cole Porter's "What Is This Thing Called Love?" starts the date with a flourish. Raney is at his most lyrical during the foot-tapping rendition of the ballad "Tenderly." The leader's elaborate yet subtle fills in "You Go to My Head" contrast with his potent interpretation of Charlie Parker's "Barbados." Recommended.

This is the third album by Thorgeir Stubø released in 1984, and presents an interaction with the famous American guitarist Doug Raney, son of the legendary pioneer bopgitar, Jimmy Raney. Raney was at this time living in Denmark, and on this album Stubø made Doug Raney bring along the Danish top bassist Jesper Lungaard and drummer Ole Jacob Hansen. It was an elegant and perhaps more easily swinging quartet than the previous quintet from Jazz Alive…

MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 7 Tracks | 58:43 | 135,76 MB | Year: 1996; release: 1997
Genre: Jazz, Swing | Label: SteepleChase

"The quartet featured in this 1996 recording session for Steeplechase was put together on the spot in New York, just for this date, though Doug Raney and his rhythm section quickly made themselves sound as if they were a regular working group. Raney's approach to the guitar is often spacious on ballads, never too busy on up-tempo numbers, and always focused around the melody. Accompanied by pianist Michael Weiss, bassist Scott Colley, and drummer Kenny Washington, the quartet's head arrangements of the seven standards on the CD seem to come together effortlessly. The intimate approach to "Skylark" starts slowly, but gives way to a brisk, more complex development of its theme. The rhythm section swirls behind Raney in a driving rendition of "All or Nothing at All," and also features a fine solo by Weiss. Of particular interest is Raney's careful development of "I'm Old Fashioned." Highly recommended". (Ken Dryden - Allmusic).

Doug Raney was 18 when he moved to Copenhagen 20 years ago and was already quite mature in his playing though a bit more modern than his famous father Jimmy Raney.
This 1985 album was made 8 years after his debut album "Introducing Doug Raney" SCCD 31082 and represents the 9th leader album for Raney. The album really highlights the impressive development he has achieved as a musician. The pianoless trio highlights the cool tone of Raney's playing. Highly recommended.
