Comments

with original Wing inner sleeve.

MGW-12006 is an original issue of Mercury MG-20210.

A-3 is also available on Wing W90014x45.

A-6 is also available on Wing W90063x45.

Inside The Groove

A very powerful and danceable big-band ensemble by Buddy Morrow.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

Compared with his previous albums like MG-20062, this album rocks and swings so hard. A pretty good album, either as a Dance Music and a Big-Band Jazz. The sound reminds us of the Dorsey's band kind.

And the recording date is another important thing: Scott LaFaro was in Buddy Morrow's band in Fall 1955 - September 1956. This album is said to be recorded in 1956, so the bass player for this recording would be Scott LaFaro (but it has not been confirmed). Actually, a very swingy bass play heard on this album sounds so fruitful as LaFaro did... B-6 is a typical example of awesome bass sound.

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)

Ruppli's book didn't identify all the exact recording dates and personnels. Some of the below information may include my own guess :) See MGW-12000, 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,

A-3: personnel unknown.
Recorded in 1955.

A-4, B-5: personnel unknown.
Recorded in 1955.

B-4: personnel including:
Bill Haverman or Dave McKenna (p),
Scott La Faro, Chuck Sagle or Dave Poshonka (b),
Bob McKee (ds).
Recorded in New York City, December 20, 1955.

A-2, A-6, B-2, B-3, B-6: personnel unknown, but maybe similar as B-4.
Recorded date unknown, but maybe same as B-4.

A-1, A-5, B-1: personnel unknown, but maybe similar as B-4.
Recorded date unknown, but maybe in 1956.
