Reference: OCM CD 025

One of the greatest stylists American music has produced and the father of R&B-styled tenor sax. His unique powerful tone, distinctive phrasing and mastery precedes a jazzman of another magnitude. These ground breaking recordings supervised by Norman Granz between 1951-53 are a clear indication how great his art is. Inspired to play in a most relaxed manner in the company of Hank Jones, Sir Charles Thompson and Count Basie. This CD became the Swing-gem you need. So sit down, listen and enjoy the vibrant and juicy Jacquet Sound à la Carte.
