"Shelly Manne & His Men, More Swingin' Sounds"

Factory Sealed Classic Analog LP Pressing. The 1956 edition of Shelly Manne's Men is heard in an all-originals program: Charlie Parker's swinging "Rhythm"-based "Moose the Mooche" (including Bird's chorus from his Dial recording); Johnny Mandel's "Tommyhawk," a volatile minor-key swinger; and two from within the band's ranks, Russ Freeman's tender, brooding "The Wind," and Charlie Mariano's deep-dish, nine-minute "Pint of Blues." The piece de resistance is the 15-minute suite in four parts, "Quartet," by Bill Holman. The composer explains that while it "corresponds broadly to the four movements of the classical sonata form," it has not been used "because it is a classical form but because it has proven itself, though centuries of use, capable of supporting (as framework) a composition of this length." -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Track Listings 1.
