Buddy DeFranco - Cooking The Blues

A great one from Buddy DeFranco exactly the kind of record that will make you understand why jazz collectors have always prized his Verve Records work so much ! Although Buddy's given instrument, the clarinet, was one that was handled by so many others at the time in kind of an outmoded way DeFranco always managed to keep things fresh and modern, drawing heavily on bop inspiration for a record like this, yet also remaining true to his roots too. Part of the strength of the record is the group, too – given that Sonny Clark is on piano, bringing in a mighty soulful undercurrent to the rhythm section, and even playing a bit of organ too ! Tal Farlow brings in some nice guitar and the group's completed by Gene Wright on bass and Bobby White on drums on titles that include "Indian Summer", "Cooking The Blues", "Stardust", and "How About You".

Hi Mel,
Just discovered Buddy DeFranco with your last uploads
and found out that he left a week ago...
I'd like to get some more of his recordings.
Could you upload again the old one:
namely Jazz Tones, with Oscar P,
with Artie Shaw, wholly Cats
and Generalissimo.
That would be really great.
Many thanks for your Blog
and Happy New Year!

Buddy and Tal, what a line-up. And the rythm section ain't bad at all. Best to you Mel.
