This latest Savage-Solweig release is the second volume culled from the saxophonist's own private tape archive and it includes several arrangements and compositions that were never featured elsewhere by Tubby - including an astounding unaccompanied tour-de-force on the title track. It adds considerably to this picture and contains a performance dating from an especially purple patch in his career, indeed from just a few days ahead of his now-legendary appearance with Duke Ellington.
Savage-Solweig Records is dedicated to the release of previously unissued recordings by the late, great British jazz virtuoso Tubby Hayes. With unique access to the tapes left in Hayes personal archive after his death, many hours of recordings have been unearthed and carefully restored to create a series which displays this much-missed genius at the peak of his powers. Each release features extensive booklet notes by Hayes biographer Simon Spillett, contemporary photographs and reminiscence by those directly involved in the actual recordings.
Recorded: The Dancing Slipper Ballroom, West Bridgford, Nottingham, February 12th 1964.
Personnel: Tubby Hayes (tenor saxophone, vibraphone),Jimmy Deuchar (trumpet, mellophonium), Terry Shannon (piano), Freddy Logan (bass), Allan Ganley (drums)
