Reference: OCM CD 018

Hardee's stay on the NY scene, though short and discreet, represents an
unforgettable memory for veteran tenor sax fans who heard him. Mainly influenced by Chu Berry's phrasing, his 1946-49 sessions turn out to be a great display of Texas style volume and exuberance. His definitive recordings are finally in your hands, including his Blue Note & Savoy sides in full, plus other important dates in the company of Tiny Grimes, Trummy Young, Buster Bailey, Lem Davis, Billy Kyle, Billy Taylor and Buddy Rich. Simply enjoy !
