LP (Item 494068) Clef, Early 50s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.90 5

Great small combo work from Gene Krupa – one of his excellent sides for Verve during the 50s! Players here include the great Eddie Lockjaw Davis on tenor, Charlie Shavers on trumpet, and Bill Harris on trombone – and rhythm is from Teddy Wilson on piano, Ray Brown on bass, and Krupa on drums – a swinging little unit that keeps plenty of room for warm solo lines in the set! Titles include "Who's Rhythm", "Second Helping Blues", "Bloozy Woozy", "Meddle My Minor", and "Windy". (Heavy black label Clef pressing, with trumpeter logo and deep groove. Cover has light wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Clef, Mid 50s. Good
Nice, tight, simple, and swinging! All players are hitting a good later stride here, set in unrestricted small group company on the occasion of the film release of the Benny Goodman story. Verve was able to get the players to go past the stock stuff they did for the film, and recreate some of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
