Buck Clayton Artist Snapshot:

Trumpeter Buck Clayton is best known for his solo work and arrangements for the Count Basie band during the late '30s and '40s. A consummate mainstream jazz performer, he worked with many notable jazz musicians in the '40s and '50s, and in the mid-'50s he organized a series of rewarding jam sessions for Columbia Records. His last enduring work took place in the early '60s, in collaboration with swing-era compatriot, tenor saxophonist Buddy Tate.

Album Description

This is a 1953 reissue CD that looks like vinyl. The first of the famous Buck Clayton jam sessions. Two songs ('Sentimental Journey' and 'Moten Swing') are from a December 1953 session in which the trumpeter/leader is teamed with trumpeter Joe Newman, trombonists Urbie Green and Benny Powell, altoist Lem Davis, Julian Dash on tenor, baritonist Charlie Fowlkes, pianist Sir Charles Thompson, guitarist Freddie Green, bassist Walter Page and drummer Jo Jones. However it is 'How Hi the Fi' (cut along with 'Blue Moon' on March 31, 1954) that is most memorable. Buck and fellow trumpeter Joe Thomas, trombonists Urbie Green and Trummy Young, clarinetist Woody Herman, Davis and Dash, Al Cohn on second tenor, pianist Jimmy Jones, guitarist Steve Jordan, bassist Walter Page and drummer Jo Jones are all in inspired form. The most memorable soloists are the rambunctious Trummy Young, the harmonically advanced chordings of Jimmy Jones and an exuberant Woody Herman who was rarely heard in this type of jam session setting. With Clayton having worked out some ensemble riffs for the horns beforehand and plenty of space left for spontaneity, this music has plenty of magic. OLP. 2005.
