Buddy DeFranco - Jazz Tones

The jazz tones here are mighty nice — on a record that sparkles with some of Buddy DeFranco's best music ever ! As with other Verve dates from the time, this DeFranco outing's got a rhythmic pulse that really gets things going — a sense of swing that's nice and lean, but quite powerful too pushing Buddy past any cliched clarinet modes of the 50s, into a realm that really unlocks new sax-like sounds in his horn! The piano has a lot to do with the record – played here by either Kenny Drew or Sonny Clark with bass from Milt Hinton or Gene Wright, and drums from Art Blakey and Bobby White. Titles include "Jack The Field Stalker", "Tenderly", "Yesterdays", "Lover Man", and "The Things We Did Last Summer"...

For years and years, for me, Buddy De Franco was a named that resonated historically, but I didn't listen. With your help, he's very much back for me. This one sounds like an especially good one, given my current tastes. Many thanks for this and so much else.
