long gone LPs which are re-relesed in CD form at a bargain price.Deliverd next day of ordering. I had forgotten how good Humphs 'mainstream' band with Tony Coe Joe Temperley etc was. Highly recomended .

5.0 out of 5 stars COHESIVE, SURE-FOOTED & COMMANDING., 17 Sep 2010

This review is from: Four Classic Albums Plus (Jazz Concert / Jazz Session With Humph / Humph In Perspective / Here's Humph!) (Audio CD)
These four albums span the fifties, and listening to them again, I was struck by the degree of cohesion achieved by the various groups, by the surefooted choice of tempo for each number, and by Humph's commanding lead. He also swam against the trad tide by dispensing with vocals, thus ensuring that the music flowed uninterrupted from start to finish. The result is vibrant and thrilling, and as fresh today as when it was first recorded. A superb compilation, including original liner notes, personnel, and recording dates, it is great value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Humph at his peak., 29 April 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Four Classic Albums Plus (Jazz Concert / Jazz Session With Humph / Humph In Perspective / Here's Humph!) (Audio CD)
Some of my earliest records were Humph on 78rpm. Listening to these other early recordings gave great pleasure. It's too easy to think of Humph as a "wit" chairing I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue but he was also a leading British jazz musician from the 50's and 60's and I still miss his wonderfully eclectic radio programme, The Best of Jazz.

I always liked Humph at 100 Oxford Street. Mac's I think they called it. I also saw Humph at several concerts and I have loads of 78's, 45's and 331/3rds. It was great to buya cd.
