Description by

Leo Parker may have studied alto sax in high school, but he scored his greatest successes when he switched to baritone sax in the mid-'40s. He played with the greats -- Coleman Hawkins, Billy Eckstine and Dizzy Gillespie among them. This previously unreleased set captures him with the other baritone sax great, Sax Gill, and includes three separate takes of "Leo Leaps In."


Product Description:

Personnel: Leo Parker (baritone saxophone, brass); James Robertson (trumpet); Kenny Drew, Ray Bryant (piano); Eddie Bourne (drums).
Liner Note Author: Dave Penny.
Recording information: New York, NY (02/??/1949-12/28/1950).
These 1948-1950 recordings feature baritone sax work in an early R&B-honker style with some jazz leanings and a small-combo backing. The album's use of multiple and alternate takes will be of particular interest to musicians and collectors. ~ Hank Davis
