Jazz and Blues
Saturday 04 October 1997
Saxophonist Bob Berg - who gained a certain fame as one of the few white musicians to play with Miles Davis - also has a new record out on Stretch. Though widely regarded as a fine mainstream player, his writing has not always impressed the critics. Perhaps understandably then, he has resorted to other people's work and - as the title, Another Standard suggests - come up with an album that shows him fooling around with such familiar material as "You and the night and the music", "My man's gone now" and the Beatles' "Michelle". Berg, who begins a week at Ronnie Scott's on Monday (0171-439 0747), is on good form, accompanied by a tidy rhythm section and on some numbers by trumpeter Randy Brecker and Mike Stern, a guitarist with whom he has recorded for years.
