Champ (Savoy)

LP (Item 60494) Savoy, Early 50s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 5

A nice little collection of some of Dizzy Gillespie's best bop material for Savoy – tunes that were originally recorded as 78rpm singles – then issued together on this classic album of all-star players! The tunes are short, catchy, and often very grooving – that mix of whimsy and modernism that made Dizzy stand out from the start – handled by a few different groups of players, with musicians who include Milt Jackson on vibes, John Coltrane on tenor, Wynton Kelly on piano, and Percy Heath on bass. Titles include "Tin Tin Deo", "Star Dust", "The Bluest Blues", "The Champ", "Birk's Works", "Caravan", "Time On My Hands", and "Ooh Shoo Be Doo Bee". (Maroon label pressing. Cover has some seam splitting, light wear, a sticker on the spine, a couple of light stains, and some pen notes on the back.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Blue Note, 1970/1980. Very Good
One of Hank Mobley's last recordings for Blue Note, and a record that really shows him stretching it out – hitting territory hardly imagined on his earlier hardbop sides! The album's still somewhat inside, but the overall feel is much more spacious than before – a sound that has some ... LP, Vinyl record album
