Teddy Wilson Sextet

The music on this CD has appeared a countless number of times, most recently as part of a Vintage Jazz Classics CD. The 1945 Teddy Wilson sextet (which features the pianist, vibraphonist Red Norvo and trumpeter Charlie Shavers) make the most of every second during their very concise versions of ten selections ; all but two are under three minutes. Most of the solos are just a half-chorus long, but there are some strong moments, particularly from Shavers' fiery horn. The final selection, listed as "Flyin' Home," actually has no relation to that tune and is an obscurity called "Speculation."
