Performer Notes
  • Personnel includes: Stan Getz (tenor saxophone), Lionel Hampton (vibraphone), Lou Levy (piano), Leroy Vinnegar (bass), Shelly Manne (drums).
  • Recorded in Los Angeles on August 1, 1955. Includes original release liner notes and reissue liner notes by Phil Schaap.
  • Digitally remastered by Dennis Drake (PolyGram Studios).
  • If one were to believe the clich?s and stereotypes common in some jazz history books, this duo should not have worked. By 1955, Lionel Hampton was a veteran swing vibraphonist while Stan Getz was the leader of the "cool school" of young tenors. But what these two masters had in common (in addition to a healthy respect for each other's talents) was the ability to swing as hard as possible. Joined by a fine trio, the duo really rips into "Cherokee" and "Jumpin' at the Woodside" (listen to their blistering tradeoffs) and, even with a fine ballad medley, it is these torrid jams that make this a highly recommended LP. ~ Scott Yanow
