MGW-12000: A Salute To The Fabulous Dorseys / Buddy Morrow

[Front Cover] Label Type : blue Wing type A
Matrix Number : SIDE-A MGW12000A MF1    A1    I
SIDE-B MGW12000B 4    C1    I



Comments

MGW-12000 is an original issue of Mercury MG-20204.

Inside The Groove

Nice danceable big-band ensemble by Buddy Morrow, with fabulous Dorsey Brothers on his mind.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

Mercury launched a subsidiary label Wing in this year (later it was changed to a budget low-price series). This is the very first album on the Wing label.

This album, a compilation from Buddy Morrow's various sessions in 1955 (some are from the same session as MGW-12006), is definitely a very swingy and danceable big band record.

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

8 out of 10

Personnel


Personnel/recorded date/master numbers confirmed with the Ruppli's discography.
(“The Mercury Labels - A Discography” by Ruppli and Novitsky, Greenwood Press, 1993)

See MGW-12006's personnel, which contains same/similar recorded sessions.

Since Scott LaFaro was in the Buddy Morrow's band in Fall 1955 - September 1956, it is highly probable that most of these tunes features Scott LaFaro on bass.

Buddy Morrow (tb, leader) and his Orchestra (detailed personnel unknown).
Recorded in 1955.
