This second collection of guitarist Tiny Grimes' R&B and swing-oriented recordings for the Gotham label has just four performances that were previously released plus four new alternate takes and six previously unknown selections. This set is actually a bit better than the previous Featuring Screamin' Jay Hawkins release on Collectables, and there is only one vocal heard along the way. While Red Prysock was the best known of Grimes' tenor soloists, the selections on this CD actually feature John Hardee, Ripp Sewell, and Benny Golson on tenor. The music is generally rollicking, Grimes has plenty of solo space, and the basic performances are always enjoyable. Well worth exploring. ~ Scott Yanow
