The Artistry of Buddy DeFranco

One of the best Buddy DeFranco albums from the 50s — an open-ended session that features a quartet with Sonny Clark on piano, and some longer tunes than usual ! Buddy blows it wonderfully warm — taking the clarinet to places not imagined in the decade before — and working with Sonny in a tight small group format that really swings with a light and breezy edge — thanks to a gentle groove from Eugene Wright on bass and Robert White on drums. The interplay between Sonny Clark and Buddy DeFranco is definitely one of the great jazz pairings of the 50s – as you'll hear on tracks that include "Titoro", "Mine", "Gerry's Tune", and "Now's The Time".
