Comments

a paper piece sticked onto the back cover - maybe by previous owner.

Inside The Groove

A compilation of George Barnes and Bud Freeman's original Keynote recordings.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

Side-A features George Barnes' sextet performance on September 1946. George Barnes plays incredible guitar here, though it is not just a pure straightahead jazz kind.

On the other hand, Side-B captures Bud Freeman's finest all-star ensemble recorded on December 1945. Very swingy, powerful and emotional.

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

7 out of 10
