JAZZ FOR PLAYBOYS ~ (1956)!

JAZZ FOR PLAYBOYS ~ (1956)!

ANOTHER COOL DOWNLOAD FROM KELLY'S LOUNGE SOUNDZ . . .


ALBUM NOTES:

This album has three songs apiece from two similar sessions. One half of the set features Frank Wess (doubling on flute and tenor) accompanied by both Kenny Burrell and Freddy Green on guitars, bassist Eddie Jones and drummer Gus Johnson. The other three titles add trumpeter Joe Newman and have Ed Thigpen in Johnson's place. The music is essentially cool-toned swing/bop very much in a Count Basie vein and is easily recommended to straightahead jazz fans. ~ Scott Yanow
