This review is from: Piano Jazz With Milt Hinton (Audio CD)
Big a Jazz fan as I am, I have to admit that I was only vaguely familiar with the name Milt Hinton. Well the moment I started playing this I knew it was good, and when he played his rap I knew it was great. A fabulous bass player who has a rich seam of stories to tell both musically and verbally. Marian McPartland is the perfect host. She was a brilliant musician herself, and this recording is another classic in the Piano Jazz radio show she hosted for 34 years. Sadly both have now passed away. I don't know how many other recordings of the two of them playing together there are (quite a few I suspect given the length of both their careers), but with the fascinating discussions included here this is as good a recording to start with as any.
