Buddy DeFranco - MGM

Jazz clarinetist Buddy DeFranco recorded a lot of small group swing in the 1950's, most of it for Verve and all of it outstanding. While this somewhat pricey import CD sports the Japanese Verve label, these sessions were originally recorded in 1952 for the MGM label (Source: Buddy DeFranco Discography by Arne Astrup). Besides DeFranco, the personnel includes Kenny Drew on piano, Jimmy Raney on guitar, Curley Russel/Teddy Kotick on bass and Arthur Taylor/Art Blakey on drums. Indeed an all-star line-up. This CD compiles work from 4 sessions recorded during the first half of 1952 in New York and San Francisco and all 16 charts swing with abandon. Highly recommended.

defranco hooking up with Bird's drew/russell/blakey rhythm section is perhaps not quite as crazy as grant green's flirting with Trane's a decade later, but it gives some sense of how high-flyin' buddy must've been back then!
the earlier section with raney is also peerless! mouthwatering stuff!
thanks so much!
