Comments

Inside The Groove

Billy Mitchell's second leader album with Thad Jones on trumpet.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

Billy Mitchell, a seldom-known tenor saxophonist, worked in such bands as Milt Buckner, Woody Herman, Dizzy Gillespie and Count Basie. His tenor sound is so bold and hard-swinging, which surely will entertain us Modern Jazz listeners.

On this album, Billy Mitchell is accompanied with Thad Jones on trumpet. Backed up with Thad's charming but refreshing trumpet, Billy Mitchell fully enjoys this nice session - blows and swings so bold just as how we Jazz fans expect to listen to. Unfortunately, Kenny Burrell, another famous star, is not so spotlighted on this album as we expect (probably because Richard Wyand's left hand comping and Kenny's guitar interfare each other).

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

10 out of 10
