Don Elliott - Four Classic Albums

AVID Jazz continues its Four Classic album series with a re-mastered 2CD release by multi-instrumentalist, Don Elliott, complete with original artwork and liner notes. Don Elliott Quintet, Mellophone, Don Elliott & Rusty Dedrick Counterpoint For Six Valves and At The Modern Jazz Room. Sometimes known as the "human instrument," Don Elliott was a musician of many parts. He started the life of a musician playing trumpet but went on to play vibraphone, mellophone, trombone, flugelhorn as well as singing. He made over 60 albums during his long career which also included writing and performing over 5000 advertising jingles, pioneering the art of multi-tracking, owning his own studios in New York and Weston, Connecticut. He was also involved in film and theatre scores. On our four selections Don can be heard with the likes of Rusty Dedrick, Hal McKusick, Milt Hinton, Mundell Lowe, Dick Hyman and Jimmy Campbell.
