Format: Audio CD
A Saturday morning in June 1962 and Tubby Hayes arrives at the recording studio on West 48th Street in New York City. A session has been slated for later that day with a pick-up group. None of the group has been aware of the date until the night before. One by one they wander in. All have been playing spots in various clubs until the early hours. Introductions are made. One member wonders who Tubby Hayes is, asks if he's a rock `n' roll singer. This is Jimmy Gloomy, not his real name, as he probably shouldn't be there at all - contractual reasons. Memories of Louis Armstrong: "It wasn't me, sir. I won't do it again". Midday arrives and producer Quincy Jones suggests maybe they get started. But what to play? They don't have a play list, have never rehearsed. Apart from pianist Walter Bishop Jnr, Tubbs has never met any of them. Quincy suggests they warm up with a blues, and they choose `Stitt's Tune`, the theme of Tubb's old band The Jazz Couriers - Tubbs and Gloomy on tenor sax, Roland Kirk providing counter melody on manzello and stritch, his customary hybrid horns. Next it's a minor blues - a Kirk original `I See With My Third "I"', then a ballad medley, including `Alone Together', one of Tubbs' favourites. Next Tubbs switches to vibes for `Afternoon In Paris', with solos from Kirk and Gloomy on tenors and Bishop on piano, and an unrehearsed coda from one-man brass section Kirk on tenor, manzello and stritch. They round off the session with another Kirk original `Lady "E"', with Tubbs still on vibes and Kirk on flute. And then they're through. Just time for bassist and drummer Sam Jones and Louis Hayes to get to Birdland and Kirk to the Five Spot for their first sets, and for Tubbs to return to the UK. In the space of just a few short hours they've recorded an exciting and memorable jazz album. That's how it was and them were the days.

1. Five tracks t.t. 35:48. Too short! A 1962 session.
2. Three blues-based tracks, one medley of three tunes.
3. Tubby has a ts-solo on #1,2,4,5/2 =(second title of the medley: Alone Together.)
and vbs on #3. His solo's are well balanced and attractive.
4. "Jimmy Gloomy" is James Moody and plays ts.. Roland Kirk: ts, manzello,
stritch, flute.(a manzello is a Bflat soprano, a stritch is a straight alto) Bisshop:p . Louis Hayes:d
Roland Kirk as well as Gloomy and Bisshop play some nice solo's. Not stunning.
Sam Jones, a renowned bass player, has a good solo on #4.
Kirk plays on the last track without reed on the sax. Smart, but not my
cup of tea.
5. As for me, Tubby is the only one who really can capture my attention.
6. Recording quality: mediocre, despite recorded in New York.

Brit tenor master meets the wildman of the Colonies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 2 May 2009
By C. Katz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Tubby Hayes and His All Stars Return Visit (A Mercury original also re-released on Smash as Tubby's Back In Town so you fanatics don't get both) is an incredible LP/CD yet another sucker I wish I could give six or sixty stars to.Check it-England's foremost tenor player of all time (who also plays vibes really well) who is in the straight hard bop mold of a Rollins or Mobley matched up with Rolland Kirk who here at 23 is fully formed playing Tenor and Manzello (guess he left his Stritch at home) and brilliantly rounded out in a sextet on Flute with Jimmy Gloomy (think for minute and of course it's James Moody).They are backed by the always fine Walter Bishop Jr. and the frequently paired of Sam Jones and Louis Hayes.
The album starts out with John Lewis's Afternoon In Paris" with Tubby on Vibes while Kirk plays Manzello and Tenor and beginning and and simultaneously.Second is a Kirk tune "I see With My Third 'I'" which YOU KNOW is a Kirk tune.Again Tubby pounds the Vibes while Moody and Kirk both play flue chorus's.At the end Kirk even plays a toy plastic flute in his nostril (hey fine etiquette wasn't his thing making sound was).Next tune is "Lady E" is another Kirk tune and here he trades off with Hayes on Tenor doing simultaneous response.Her the rhythm session cuts loose .Nest up a tune "Stitt's tune" ((written by guess who?) was an oft played tune of Stitt's in the late 40's and starts with Tubby Playing three horns simultaneously and Tubby on he fourth and Moddy moves in as the song moves along.Last tune on the LP I wih went on for hours is a medley of standard ballads:"If I had You"featuring Moody on Flute,"Alone Together" with Tubby on Tenor and ,and For Heavens Sake" with Kirk taking he lead.It best compares their styles and is truly wonderful.The whole LP is.If you haven't heard Tubby Hayes this is as good a place to start but don't miss his other great small and big band recordings re-released by labels like Jasmine.The Fontana sessions are best like his LP with Jack Costanzo in Latin vein or his early work with The Jazz Couriers (Ronnie Scott and Stan Tracey).But it's as the kids say today "all good".All in all this IS NOT a Tenor Battle but or a Blues only recording but a wonderful outing with well thought varied repertoire and styling.This Lp would have been great even if he hadn't shared the limelight with the unique and wonderful Rolland (latter Rhssan) Kirk but it's a Ruby in the Hayes discography that's studded with Diamonds.
