Product Description:

Personnel: Vic Dickenson (trombone); Ruby Braff, Shad Collins (trumpet); Edmond Hall (clarinet); Sir Charles Thompson (piano); Steve Jordan (guitar); Walter Page (bass); Les Erskine, Jo Jones (drums).
Recorded in 1953 and 1954.
This single CD reissues ten of the dozen songs originally on a double LP of the same name. Trombonist Vic Dickenson did not get to lead that many sessions, and he is generous in allocating solo space on these mainstream sessions. Trumpeters Ruby Braff and/or Shad Collins along with the distinctive clarinetist Edmond Hall and pianist Sir Charles Thompson (who often sounds here like Count Basie) are well featured, and the music is enjoyable; highlights include "Russian Lullaby," a 12-minute rendition of "Jeepers Creepers," "Old Fashioned Love," and "Everybody Loves My Baby." ~ Scott Yanow
