Buddy DeFranco - Pretty Moods

Buddy DeFranco with Sonny Clark on piano — an early classic in the wonderful run the two players cut for Verve Records — a key chapter in jazz during the early 50s ! Buddy's clarinet has these wonderfully angular turns here — very different than the generation before, and spurred on by some new bop modes from Clark's work on the keys. The format is lean, clean, and extremely tight — some of the best jazz clarinet work of the time, and proof that the instrument could have a life long after the swing years had ended. Other players include Bobby White on drums and Gene Wright on bass — and the whole thing's packaged in a sweet David Stone Martin cover ! Titles include "Lover Man", "Yesterdays", "If I Should Lose You", and "Deep Purple"...

Thank you for all the music but I cannot download with rapidshare without a premium account. As this site is about the only one to use RS anymore (at least among the dozen or so sites I belong to...private sites)it is not financially feasible to pay for just RS anymore.
Again, thank you for all the music.
