Reseña de álbum

Four different sessions featuring pianist Jay McShann are on this enjoyable CD. The first three numbers team the veteran swing/blues player with bassist Major Holley and drummer Bobby Durham, including a swinging rendition of "I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter." There are also three duets with Holley that are particularly valuable, as the bassist (who has two vocals) passed away later that year and these might very well be his final recordings. The next three pieces (two of which are blues) feature the trio of McShann, trombonist Al Grey (who is in top form), and bassist Bill Crow. The remaining three numbers have McShann and Grey featured in a quintet with flügelhornist Clark Terry (who shares two humorous good-time vocals with the pianist), bassist Milt Hinton, and drummer Ben Riley. All of the sessions are quite fun and are filled by colorful solos. The CD concludes with Jay McShann on "Jazzspeak," talking in great detail about his early life up until his first years in Kansas City. Overall, this is a difficult program not to love.

McShann formed his own sextet the following year and by 1939 had his own big band. In 1940 at a radio station in Wichita, KS, McShann and an octet out...
