Album Review

A fine tenor saxophonist who appeared on many sessions in the 1950s, Count Hastings only led two sessions of his own in his career, both for Gotham and released in full on this CD. The first two songs (from 1948) are with an unidentified rhythm section and include a barely recognizable "Begin the Beguine." The eight numbers from the January 4, 1950, session (including two alternate takes) often have Hastings teamed with fellow tenor George Kelly and some sparks fly. The music is early R&B but also has the influence of small-group swing and bebop. The material is mostly basic, but the playing is creative within the genre. Also included on this CD are two numbers apiece from altoist Danny Turner (no relation to the later Count Basie alto of the same name) and the completely forgotten (but worthwhile) tenor Eddie Woodland. Fun jump music.
