Barrett Deems – Groovin’ Hard
Delmark DE 505
Compact Disc (1998)

Not too long before this album was recorded a reunion took place in Chicago between Barrett Deems and veteran Columbia Records producer George Avakian, who recorded Louis Armstrong’s great All-Stars sessions (mid-’50s albums Ambassador Satch, Plays Fats, etc.) when Barrett Deems was the group’s drummer. On his second big band album, Groovin’ Hard, the 85-year-young Deems gives us a kicking, driving, loosely swinging workout on classic charts in the ever young Basie-Wilkins-Hefti mold, many freshened up with assorted amendments and on-the-money solos.
