Monterose grew up in Utica, New York , where his family moved a few months after his birth.

He began formal clarinet studies at thirteen, but was largely self-taught as a tenor saxophonist, which he took up at fifteen after hearing Glenn Miller band soloist Tex Beneke. His earliest influences were Coleman Hawkins and Chu Berry , but, as he told critic Leonard Feather , he also found harmonic inspiration in pianists, citing Bud Powell and the instruction of Utica-based guitarist and pianist Sam Mancuso in helping him learn how to use chord changes.

Monterose's first professional experience was playing in upstate New York territory dance bands — In he joined Henry "Hot Lips" Busse 's touring orchestra. After a brief return to Utica, he joined the Buddy Rich big band in late Record Label. Xanadu Records 26 Items MCA 14 Items Vinyl Japan 14 Items CBS Records 3 Items 3. Magic 2 Items 2.

Originally released by the very obscure Jaro label, this excellent session was saved and reissued by Xanadu on a LP. The talented but underrated tenor saxophonist J.R.

  3. Also released as THE MESSAGE. But if I may correct the other reviewer I Rememer Clifford is much the better ballad and the best track on the CD, unless you are ardent J. R. fan. Strangely enough Monterose's playing much improved for his encounter with Jackie McLean on Charles Mingus's PITHECANTHROPUS ERECTUS although Mal Waldron seperates them on the 2 3/5(2).
