Product Description:

Personnel includes: John Kirby (bass), Charlie Shavers (trumpet), Buster Bailey (clarinet).
Personnel: John Kirby (tuba); Russell Procope (alto saxophone); Charlie Shavers (trumpet); Billy Kyle (piano).
Recorded in 1941 when the John Kirby Sextet was at the height of its powers and popularity, this album consists of 14 mostly brief performances cut as radio transcriptions. Clocking in between 1:47 and 3:05, the selections feature concise solos from trumpeter Charlie Shavers, clarinetist Buster Bailey, altoist Russell Procope and pianist Billy Kyle, plus the group's trademark cool sound and flawless work on some rather tricky arrangements. Among the more memorable numbers are "Ida," "Coquette," "Front and Center," "Dawn on the Desert" and "Original Dixieland One Step." ~ Scott Yanow
