A 2 CD set is double bonus in anybody's book. This package by Jerry Jerome is no exception. The first CD, entitled Something Borrowed , is a collection of Jerry's early work withJerry Jerome and His Orchestraon "Broadway Camera," a tv show on WPIX in New York in 1950. Other pieces from the period of 1939 to 1964 are featured, and it is a wonderful romp through his legacy in the music of that era.



The second barrel in this loaded Jazz shotgun is entitled Something Blue. This was the compilation from tunes recorded in March of 2001. Sadly, Jerry Jerome passed away on November 17, 2001, just as this package was coming to completion. The session that produced Something Blue elucidates the fact that even in his late 80's, the tenor sax man hadn't lost a step. With a full compliment of talented accompanyists, Jerry Jerome was simply swinging' in the 2001 session. In many instances you may have to check the CD to remember which one you're listening to. Two fully loaded Jazz good times are here for the taking!
