Hank Jones & Tyree Glenn - Quintet & Sextet

Although pianist Hank Jones gets first billing on this two-disc set from Lone Hill Jazz, it actually contains three complete Tyree Glenn-led sessions that were originally released on LP by Roulette Records as At the Embers, At the Roundtable and At the London House in 1957, 1958 and 1961. Featuring Glenn on trombone and vibraphone running through swing and bop standards backed by a world-class rhythm section of Jones, Milt Hinton and Jo Jones, Quintet/Sextet Complete Recordings makes a fine introduction to an often over-looked and completely professional jazz player. Among the highlights are Glenn's own "After the Rain" (not to be confused with the later John Coltrane composition by the same title), a jaunty "I Wanna Be Loved," and a shimmering vibraphone turn at "Limehouse Blues."

What a find, though why it's listed under Hank's name I'm not quite sure. There's a wonderful video of Tyree clowning about with Louis, I think the song is "My Ideal". I had no idea he doubled on vibes. There's something odd here though, the titles have got muddled up. I'll try and figure out how and come back with a corrected order.
