Pure and simple genius from trumpeter Charlie Shavers -- a player with a sweet tone and a fluid groove -- stepping out here with great accompaniment from pianist Ray Bryant! The CD brings together work from the albums Charlie Digs Paree and Charlie Digs Dixie -- both originally recorded for MGM Records in the late 50s, and done in a clean, uncluttered style that really brought a strong focus to Shaver's solos, but also gave some excellent rhythmic support from Bryant -- working here at the height of his early powers, in a mode that's clearly relaxed enough to get with the spirit of each different session. Shavers plays in a mostly-muted style on the first set, and with a more open horn on the second -- and titles include "Domino", "Petite Fleur", "The Last Time I Saw Paris", "Pigalle", "Jazz Me Blues", "Comme Ci Comme Ca", "Muskrat Rumble", "Daddy's Got The Gleeks", and "At The Jazz Band Ball". Added to the CD are 4 tracks from the Le Crazy Horse album -- featuring Shavers on trumpet and vocal with an unknown French group -- on titles that include "Man With A Horn", "One O'Clock Jump", and "Back Home Again In Indiana". (4 tracks are from ' At Le Crazy Horse Saloon')
