ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes

The Cartoon Jazz project was launched in 2003 at the Stanford Jazz Festival with the revival of charts from the great American composer, Raymond Scott. Jeff Sanford tracked down many charts of the famous composer, written for 16-piece bands in public archives and private collector libraries. Members of his band have since been contributing new arrangements of Scott's music as well as other jazz pieces which have been used in cartoons.

Raymond Scott never intended to write for cartoons. His frantic rhythms were emulating the fast and energetic sounds of the New York City lifestyle. Carl Stalling, then music director for Warner Brothers and an avid admirer of Scott's music, used many of Scott's themes in the scores overlaying the cartoon movies of our childhood friends Bugs Bunny and Porky Pig.
Jeff Sanford, musician, band leader, music teacher, collector of music charts and instruments. He is considered by his peers to be an ace reader and a ‘tune monster’ who loves many styles including pop music, traditional Brazilian, Jewish, Italian, French and German, classical and jazz.
He has played and toured in China and Vietnam, from St. Barts to Juneau, Alaska. He has performed with Clark Terry, Regina Carter, Stan Getz, Tootie Heath, Frankie Lane, Steve Allen, the Ink Spots, the SF Symphony, Michael Feinstein, Eddie Fisher and Jon Hendricks. Jeff is always working with his Cartoon Jazz Septet $Orchestra, the Martini Brothers, The Golden Gate Park Band, Rudy Salvini's Big Band, Paul Smith Quartet, Mal Sharpe's Big $ in Jazz Band, Dana Land, Tony Marcus/Patrice Haan' Leftover Dreams, Cats n Jammers, Noah Griffin, Jonathon Poretz, Rick Quisol's Frisky Frolics

A Fun Ride
As a child, I loved the cartoons from the 30's and 40's, their zany antics and wacky characters in impossible situations. i also was totally tuned into the music, those bigger than life, emotionally exaggerated tunes that brought wobbly machines to life and ensured that the anthropomorphized animals required no words to communicate their anger, giddiness or dopey-ness. That music made those cartoons pop.

So here's a group of musicians, led by Jeff Sanford, who bring that all back to life, including some songs from more modern cartoons. What a fun ride!
