Once again Real Gone Jazz has come up with a great set of recordings covering Buck Clayton's work between 1954 and 1961. Some of the material on these 4 CD's is available on other labels, but some seems to be well and truly out of print. The overall sound is good, the usual lack of sleeve notes has to be accepted, but it is still annoying. The first tracks cover a meeting with Buck Clayton and Ruby Braff, these are recordings that I have enjoyed listening to now for over 50 years and despite that there was a problem with sound balance when it was recorded, the recordings are still enjoyable. The next 8 tracks are from 2 Buck Clayton Jam sessions recorded in 1954/5. Once again I have had these recordings for a long time, but they are always good to hear no matter how many times you hear them. Although the inclusion of Lem Davis on alto sax does not seem to fit in very well, perhaps that's just me. On " Broadway " the tap dancer is Jack Ackerman. I had never heard any of the 10 tracks on the Frankie Laine set, but despite the fact that Laine was hardly a jazz singer, they are all enjoyable. Frankie Laine, in my mind was a good singer of themes from Western movies. Who can forget him singing the theme from " Blazing Saddles" ? The musicians are not all listed for these tracks, no mention is made of the fact that J.J.Johnson and Kai Winding are also featured. " Going to Kansas City ", " Buck and Buddy " and " Buck and Buddy Blow the Blues ", are also new to me and they are all 3 excellent recordings. There is a line up of 9 musicians on the Kansas City recording including the excellent Dickie Wells on trombone, on the remaining 2, there is a quintet including Buddy Tate. Surely a match made in heaven for lovers of good old fashioned swinging jazz. Highly recommended.

Buck Clayton
Seven Classic Albums realeased on the Real Gone label gives us 7 albums for the price of one.
Born Wilbur Dorsey Clayton on 12th November 12, 1911 at Parsons, Kansas, Buck died on 8th December 1991.
He started playing at the age of six and played lead trumpet with Count Basie’s "Old Testament" orchestra.
Later surgery on his mouths prevented Buck from playing for a while but he did return to the trumpet later.

The Real Gone Label release 100s of this type of collection at 'cheap as chips' prices.

There is minimal information and I have often found that it is only on the first CD of the set that actually lists the tracks as they play.

BUT the label really put all their efforts into remastering the sound and, let's face it, most fair people would agree that is what counts in the end?

The 4 Cds are housed in a double wide jewel case. and that is about it.

But At the time of writing Amazon have not given us the track listing so I checked it up and thought the information would be of interest to anyone that wants to know what's on the 4CDs.

The albums are
"Buck Clayton Meets Ruby Braff (1954)",
"How Hi The Fi (with Woody Herman)(1954)",
"Jumpin' At The Woodside (1955)",
"Frankie Laine And The Buck Clayton Orchestra - Jazz Spectacular (1956)",
"Goin' The Kansas City (1960)", "
Buck & Buddy (with Buddy Tate)(1961)" and
"Buck And Buddy Blow The Blues (with Buddy Tate)".
