Comments

All tunes are also available on EP-1-6064 and EP-1-6065.

Later this LP was reissued (with four additional tracks) on MG-36032 (12-inch).

Inside The Groove

Very swingy mainstream jam session by the vibraphone master Lionel Hampton, from original French Blue Star recording.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

The very first release from EmArcy label, of Lionel Hampton's swingy jam session in Paris, France in 1953. The featured artist (except the leader Hamp) here is Milton “Mezz” Mezzrow on clarinet, who spreads comfortable swing constantly on this session. Other featured artist would be André Persiany, the French pianist who played so many American Jazz musicians in Paris.

On A-1 “Mister Fedor”, Hamp plays fabulous “two-finger piano” on the first half, while he switch the instrument to vibraphone on the latter half. All four tracks on this album are swingy, relaxed - a nice mainstream session.

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

9 out of 10
