MG-25062: Improvisations / Red Norvo

[Front Cover] Label Type : red/gold Mercury promotional?
Matrix Number : SIDE-A MG25062A
SIDE-B MG25062B



Comments

1nd release issued on Mercury label - will be re-issued as EmArcy MG-26002 (with different song order).

paper sleeve type jacket.

An unusual red label with gold print - maybe for promotional issue.

Inside The Groove

A heart-warming and swingy pre-bop mainstream jazz sessions, of original Keynote recording.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

Red Norvo and Teddy Wilson - their name and the year 1944 will guarantee the supreme quality of the sessions on this album :) On A-1 and B-1, we can hear the marvellous trumpet of Joe Thomas again.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

8 out of 10
