MG C-112: Illinois Jacquet Collates

[Front Cover] Label Type : black/silver Mercury trumpeter type A
Matrix Number : SIDE-A MG C112A    F
SIDE-B MG C112B    F



Comments

Great artwork (on the front cover) by David Stone Martin - one of my favourites.

Water damage on the spine and the back cover.

Alternate take of A-3 can be heard on Mercury 8951x45 (45rpm). I haven't confirmed yet, which version of Speedliner is on Mercury 8951 (78rpm).

Inside The Groove

A collection of Illinois Jacquet's JATP-era recordings produced by Norman Granz.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

JATP-era was one of Illinois Jacquet's earliest peaks in his long career. This album, a precedence of 2nd collates MG C-129, is a compilation from several 78rpm releases (by Mercury and Clef). This LP captures his mild and gentle side. As many may know he is not a mere "honker", but also a great balladeer. Even in his mellow plays, we can enjoy his awesome soul.

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

8 out of 10
