Boomkat Product Review:
For a jazz cellist, there aren't so many possible heroes on the instrument. Fortunately, there's Fred Katz. Not only as a cellist- but as composer and arranger too, Katz is worthy of accolades and acolytes. He studied with old master Pablo Casals and played piano behind various big-name crooners at the start of the '50s, but soon Katz made his decisive move into the Chico Hamilton Quintet, where he had a chance to work with multiple reed visionary Eric Dolphy and guitarist Jim Hall. Fellow cellist and fellow Frederick -- Chicagoan Fred Lonberg-Holm set out a few years ago to pay homage to the gloriously cool Mr. Katz. Recruiting ultra-sensitive drummer Glenn Kotche and adaptable bassist Jason Roebke, Lonberg-Holm arranged a varied set of Katz's music, as well as some pieces familiar from his records.
