Seminal late 30s recordings by the collective Port Of Harlem Jazzmen, the group that eventually became the heart of saxophonist SidneyBechett's line up for Blue Note.

Tracks include "Daybreak Blues, "Weary Land Blues", Mighty Blues, "Rocking The Blues", "Summertime", and "Pounding Heart Blues". CD
Edmond Hall —
Petite Fleur ... CD United Artists/Mighty Quinn, 1959. Used ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
A compelling comeback set for clarinetist Edmond Hall – cut in 1959 when Chris Barber was enjoying a hit with a remake of SidneyBechet's "Petite Fleur", which provided for a nice opportunity to get Hall back in the studio for a date under the same name! The record's got a lot more freedom than some of Hall's earlier work – with a few key longer tracks that expand upon the trad styles of earlier records, and some exceptional production that brings out the best strengths in all players. Hall's working here with Vic Dickenson, Ellis Larkins, Emmett Berry, Milt Hinton, and Jimmie Crawford – and titles include a great 9 minute "Ellington Medley", an 8 minute original titled "Off The Road", and the tunes "Don't Give Me Sympathy", "Adam & Evie", "Clarinet Marmalade", "Edmond Hall Blues", and "Petite Fleur".
