Rare re-issue of an early Sackville recording
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].
