Bobby Jaspar - Phenil Isopropil Amine

This CD reissues Bobby Jaspar's 1958 final studio album (although he lived until 1963). Surprisingly, Jaspar, an excellent tenorman, sticks exclusively to flute, performing in a pair of pianoless groups with either Michel Hausser or Sadi Lallemand on vibes, Paul Rovère or Jymie Merritt on bass, drummer Kenny Clarke, and sometimes percussionist Humberto Canto. Comprised of six originals (five by Jaspar) and five jazz standards, this light but not lightweight chamber jazz set should have great appeal to fans of 1950s straight-ahead jazz.

Thank you very much, melanchthon. Pity he never recorded again as a leader, I wonder why that is.
