Comments

Very first pressing - sounds nice.

All tunes also available on EP-1-6124 and EP-1-6125.

A few years later these four tracks were reissued on MG-36083.

Inside The Groove

Roy Haynes' excellent bop session, from original Swedish Metronome recordings.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

Roy Haynes was a member of Lionel Hampton's band when the band toured Europe. At the time, Famous Swedish label Metronome recorded so many sessions by the members of Lionel Hampton band. This is one of them.

As far as I know, this LP is Roy Haynes' first leader session through his entire career. Featured musicians include members of Lionel Hampton band and top Swedish jazz artists. The result was superb - a typical good example of bop sessions in 1954.

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

9 out of 10
