Notes and Editorial Reviews

It's truly an all-star jam session with Lionel Hampton and his group of jazz greats, including Clark Terry, Harry 'Sweets' Edison, James Moody, Al Grey, and the rhythm section featuring Junior Mance, Jimmy Woode, and Louie Bellson. The program includes performances of “Lester Leaps In”, “St. James Infirmary” (with an approving Cab Calloway in the audience), “On the Sunny Side of the Street”, and more. James Moody performs his signature tune, “Moody's Mood for Love”, and there's a rare drumming “duet” with 'Hamp' and Louie Bellson. It's jazz royalty at its finest, with Lionel Hampton and his Golden Men of Jazz.

This program captures Lionel Hampton, renowned jazz musician sometimes called the "King of the Vibraphone,"
