✨✧ Steve AllenSteve Allen At The Roundtable ... CD
Rhino/Wounded Bird, 1958. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The cover's a bit hokey, but the album's a rock-solid session from Steve Allen – proof that he could be a very capable jazzman when needed! The recording's a live one – which makes for more spontaneous energy than some of Allen's more fully-arranged dates of the 50s – and the ... read more CD

A post-Blue Note effort, and Donald's changing things up a bit with his 125th Street Orchestra and Uptown Singers – funking along in a way you'd expect from the longwinded title!

We love Sonny Fortune – because he always plays so great!
