Message from Lenny Hambro

Alto saxophonist Lenny Hambro is better known for playing alongside jazz figures like Gene Krupa, Chico O'Farrill, and Tito Puente. Although Hambro's recorded output under his own leadership was not thoroughly documented, Collectables has reissued his 1955 session for Epic, Message From Hambro. Hambro was a disciple of Charlie Parker, and the few sessions he did release portrayed that influence. These 11 tracks, a combination of standards and originals, should please both the collector and casual listener alike.
