Outstanding jazz sessions.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: All Star Groups & Orchestra - Three Classic Albums Plus (Gene Krupa, Lionel Hampton, Teddy Wilson / Lionel Hampton & his Giants /1954 Apollo Hall Concert) (Audio CD)
I was quite surprised to see these Gene Krupa - Teddy Wilson - Lionel Hampton recording available again. I was particularly interested in the "I got rhythm" rendition of the group, so to me all other tracks are bonuses. I am not sure if the original liner notes are complete, because there seems to be a bass player in the trio's session, and this might be Red Callender.
But what joy this is, to listen again to these performances. Some jazz sessions happen once in a lifetime, which is the case here. I was extremely happy with this release, needless to say, and I would surely recommend it to jazz fans and collectors.
