Babs ... LP Chiaroscuro, Early 60s/1981. Used ....
$9.99Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hard to find reissue of one of Babs' earlier sides, recorded most likely for the Dauntless/Audio Fidelity label in the early 60s. The session appears to be a mix of live and studio tracks, with a group that features some of Babs' hip friends – like Johnny Griffin, Charlie Rouse, Roy Haynes, and Horace Parlan. Babs is in fine form on the album (is he ever not?) – and the record includes some of his best moody originals, like "Lullaby Of The Doomed" and "Lonely One" – plus more uptempo tracks like "Cool Cooking", "Speedy Gonzales", "Babs Mood For Love" and a hip rendition of "Le Continental".
