JAZZ ALBUM BRIEFS

July 27, 1986|LEONARD FEATHER

"SECOND SET." Dewey Erney. Sounds Great SG 5003 (Box 1941, Glendale 91209). Erney's quasi-tenor, quasi-baritone voice comes across as if it is second nature to him to bring the jazz essence to every melody. There are some ingenious melodic couplings, notably the medley of "All the Things You Are" and "The Song Is You." "Catch the Duke," written by Jack Prather, is an amusing lyrical grab-bag of Ellington titles. Sensitive backing by the trio of a first-rate guitarist, Ron Eschete, whose solo lights up "Everything Happens to Me." 4 stars.
