Rare re-issue of an early Sackville recording

Kez

This CD, re-issued from the original 1968 LP, was one of the first Sackville recordings, and helped serve as a sounding board for them to become the highly acclaimed jazz label they are today. Sackville released the CD in celebration of their 30th anniversary. It is an awesome and rare treat, indeed, as The Jazz Giants didn't stay together very long. The group, besides Wild Bill on cornet, consisted of pianist Claude Hopkins, Herb Hall on clarinet, Benny Morton on trombone, Arvell Shaw on string bass, and Buzzy Drootin on drums. All 9 tracks are over-the-top 5 stars. "I Surrender Dear" just might be the best version ever I've heard, but I would be hard pressed to pick a favorite track here. Download it - you won't be disappointed. See review [url=http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m2822/is_2001_Fall-Winter/ai_100440146]here[/url].

They Say All Music Guide

This was one of the first releases from the Canadian Sackville label. Cornetist Wild Bill Davison leads the sextet but most significant is the playing of the underrated clarinetist Herb Hall in one of his best recordings. Filling out the fine swing-based group are trombonist Benny Morton, pianist Claude Hopkins, bassist Arvell Shaw and drummer Buzzy Drootin. Highlights include “Struttin’ with Some Barbeque,” “I Would Do Anything for You” and “I Found a New Baby.” – Scott Yanow
