One of the rarest albums ever from singer Babs Gonzales
– one of the coolest vocalists to ever hit the bebop scene! The record is issued on Babs
' own label, and lists Clark Terry, Melba Liston, Charlie Rouse, Johnny Griffin, Horace Parlan, and Ray Nance on the cover – although we're not sure if they're all on the set. You can definitely here some strong Nance-like violin work soloing on side b – a nice change for Babs
. Side one is more swinging – and titles include "Cool Cookin", "Le Continental", "Me", "Lullaby Of Doomed", "Beginning Of The End", and "Babs
Mood For Love".
(Cover is stained and flaky on the bottom 3 inches, but also appears to have been signed by the artist on front.)
