Description by

Nicknamed for the distinctive Panama hats he wore, drummer Panama Francis laid down these jump tracks for Gotham Records in 1949 with his "All Stars," a line-up that included many of the big band and jazz royalty of the day.


Product Description:

Most of these selections were taken from master tapes. However, in some cases where master tapes were not available the best possible sources were used.
Personnel: Panama Francis (drums); Mary-Louise (vocals); Hilton Jefferson (alto saxophone); Sam "The Man" Taylor (tenor saxophone); Jonah Jones (trumpet); Dave Rivera (piano).
Collectables' All Stars 1949 is a storming swing set that drummer Panama Francisco led in 1949. ~ Leo Stanley

Rhythm & Blues Music Lover: from LE HAVRE, Seine-Maritime FR -- June, 5, 2005

This album is more for the R&B fan than for the jazz fan, despite the fact that some of the musicians (including the leader) have a distinguished Jazz career (Danny Turner was a long time member of the Count Basie Orchestra). This record is historically interesting more than anything else. Sound quality of the original recording is quite poor.
