5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Barry McCanna TOP 100 REVIEWER on 23 July 2012
Format: Audio CD
The pianist Mel Powell had a prodigious talent, and his credentials were impeccable. During his teens he worked with Bobby Hackett, Georg Brunis, Zutty Singleton, Muggsy Spanier and Wingy Manone, before joining Benny Goodman. He toured with Glenn Miller's AAF Band, and rejoined Goodman in 1945. He'd led his first studio date in 1942, but his interest turned increasingly to classical music, which he studied at Yale under Paul Hindemith. Nevertheless, between 1953 and 1955 he recorded several excellent Vanguard albums, under John Hammond's hands-off direction.

This compilation assembles four and a half Vanguard albums, plus four tracks from a Septet album, and an EP, of which the last-named is the earliest. "Classics in Jazz" dates from December 1947, and the studio group comprised Bumps Myers on sax, Jake Porter on trumpet, Lee Young on drums and Red Callender on bass. The Septet album dates from December 1953, and features Edmond Hall on clarinet, Buck Clayton on trumpet, Henderson Chambers on trombone, Steve Jordan on guitar, Walter Page on bass, and Jimmy Crawford on drums. Avid has included the four jazz numbers from the A Side, and omitted the B Side of the solo Sonatina for Piano.

"Borderline" was recorded on 17th August 1954, with Paul Quinichette on tenor sax and Bobby Donaldson on drums, and "Thigamagig" followed exactly a week later, with the tenor sax replaced by Ruby Braff on trumpet. "The Mel Powell Bandstand" dates from December 1954, and features a group which comprised John Glasel on trumpet, Chuck Russo on reeds, Jimmy Buffington on French horn, Boomie Richman on tenor sax, Mundell Lowe on guitar, Joe Kay on bass, and Eddie Phyffe on drums.
