Product Description

Product Description

AVID Jazz here presents four classic Flip Phillips albums plus including original LP liner notes on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD. Here we feature four albums plus from clarinettist turned tenor saxophonist Flip Phillips, a stalwart of first the Woody Herman Herd and later as one of the mainstays of the Jazz At The Philharmonic line up with Norman Granz. 'The Flip Phillips - Buddy Rich Trio'; 'Flip'; 'Flip Wails' and 'Swinging With Flip' We catch Flip in many different line ups across our four selections………… As a Trio with Buddy Rich and Hank Jones on piano from 1952 (also in attendance Ray Brown on bass on half the selections). With orchestra on 'Swinging With Flip' where he is joined by Charlie Shavers, Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, Barney Kessel and Buddy Rich………………not a bad line up!! Another classic line up with orchestra joins Flip for 'Flip Wails'………..and wail he certainly does alongside Bill Harris, Billy Bauer, Harry Edison, Hank Jones, Ray Brown and Buddy Rich! Finally 'Flip' where our hero is joined again by the orchestra with Howard McGhee and Benny Green. All four albums plus have been digitally re-mastered

Format: Audio CD
Phillips was one of those big-toned jazz tenor sax players who fell on the Coleman Hawkins side of the divide, while musicians of the calibre of Zoot Sims, who followed Phillips into the ranks of the Woody Herman band in the 1940s, fell ostensibly on the Lester Young side. Such determinism only serves the purpose of placing Phillips, however, for rather like Don Byas he was a man who knew his own mind and `spoke' it through his instrument of choice.

This set -at a bargain price too- offers listeners the chance to own a percentage of Phillips's output from the last year of the 1940s through to the second year of the following decade. It encapsulates the fact that Phillips was one of the most persuasive swing-through-bop players of his generation, and just to underline the point he keeps the musical company of players ranging from the devout bopper Sonny Criss to Harry `Sweets' Edison, scion of the swing machine (in the best sense) that was the Count Basie orchestra, and Frank Sinatra's trumpeter of choice.

Coleman Hawkins gave "Cheek to Cheek" a good seeing to and Phillips does the same on the second track from what was the aptly-named FLIP WAILS album, while Jo Jones shows why he's valued so highly in the history of jazz drumming.

"Lazy River" is an example of the unlikely turned into a worthwhile vehicle for jazz, and on it Phillips highlights the fact that he was a persuasive player at slower tempos; he's featured all the way, but it's pointless ruing the fact that his fellows get no chance to shine, especially when Sonny Criss gets to do some incendiary stuff on "Swinging For Julie & Brownie"

In overall terms this is another one of those Avid label sets which is a little exercise in reclamation. Without the likes of such concerns this stuff would probably have fallen by the wayside, so anyone with a passion for jazz's many byways should be brandishing the plastic with intent.

This 2 CD album is a great buy. For anyone who, like me, remembers the honking exhibitionist performances from the 50s with JATP this compilation will come as a revelation. With a wealth of material from a number of line ups at different dates the recordings are good quality and Phillips is evident throughout as a sensitive, assured and accomplished soloist. He is accompanied by a number of top notch front liners in the various settings and the rhythm sections in particular are excellent as one would expect from such luminaries as Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, Max Roach, and Buddy Rich, to name but a few. strongly recommended !!

By Barry McCanna TOP 500 REVIEWER on 6 Oct. 2012
Format: Audio CD
This compilation begins with "Flip" - a Verve LP of four tracks recorded in late 1947 and eight during 1949. The statement "featuring Howard McGhee and Benny Green" relates to the 1947 session for McGhee, and the two tracks from the August 1949 session for Bennie Green (which feature Billy Butterfield also). The FP - Buddy Rich Trio album was a composite of two sessions; the early 1950 session was actually a Quartet, which comprised Flip, Buddy Rich, Hank Jones and Ray Brown, and features on the first CD. "Flip Wails" is a compilation of three sessions, the one constant being Bill Harris on trombone. The March 1951 session included Dick Hyman and Jo Jones, and is followed by the July 1950 session, with a septet which included Harry Edison and Buddy Rich, and two of the three numbers conclude the first CD.

The album winds up on the second CD with a session from August 1951, and is followed by "Swinging with Flip", another composite album, this time of four sessions recorded in 1952. It begins with the June session, which featured Charlie Shavers, Oscar Peterson, Barney Kessel, Ray Brown & Alvin Stoller, continues with the March session, which included Al Porcino, Bill Harris, Freddie Green & Max Roach, then takes in a February septet session. It concludes with one track recorded by the Flip Phillips - Buddy Rich Trio in December, which leads in neatly to the B side of that album.

This is a fascinating compendium of Flip Phillips late forties/early fifties recordings, and showcases his distinctive warm-toned approach in a variety of settings, and across a wide range of material, from smooth ballads to swingers.

Excellent small band albums from Woody herman's tenor man in the great First Herd o the 40's,thesxde sides are from 1949,1950 and 1952,the Verve Catalogue,,with various fine musicians,including trombonist bill Harris from his First Herd days,te album with the Buddy Rich Trio is much superior to a live session I had,where Buddy overwhelmed Flip.
This is a good buy...
