Review

Review Text The first of two CDs reissuing material originally on the H.R.S. label has generally strong performances by a variety of small swing-oriented bands from 1946. The personnel overlaps in five groups headed by pianist Billy Kyle, altoist Russell Procope, trombonist Sandy Williams, pianist Jimmy Jones and trombonist Dicky Wells; the sidemen include such veteran greats as trumpeters Dick Vance, Harold Baker and Pee Wee Erwin, trombonist Trummy Young, clarinetist Buster Bailey, altoists Lem Davis and Tab Smith and the tenors of John Hardee and Budd Johnson. Although the music overall is not that essential (the bop recordings of the period are much more significant), there are some memorable performances on this well-conceived set. ~ Scott Yanow
