"Jimmy Rushing And The Smith Girls"…………..Blues singer and shouter Jimmy Rushing opens our tribute set to him with his own tribute to four famous lady Smiths!! Bessie, Clara, Mamie and Trixie. "The Jazz Odyssey Of Jimmy Rushing Esq"…………On this 1956 recording with the Buck Clayton Orchestra, Mr. Rushing gives us some of the songs which he associates with four great American cities namely New Orleans, Kansas City, Chicago and New York. "Little Jimmy Rushing and the Big Brass………..this hard to find album sees Jimmy back in the Columbia studios for a session of swing with a carefully chosen band around him and a dozen songs that swing and three arrangers who all know what the big man likes! As you will hear and as Jimmy himself knew only too well- only with a big band he is really at his best! "Brubeck & Rushing"……….. "everybody swings as Dave and Jimmy bring out the best in each other". This unusual and surprising collaboration instigated in the main by Jimmy himself works amazingly well because Jimmy told Dave it would! Take a listen and we think he was right! Joined by Paul Desmond, Eugene Wright and Joe Morello this is a truly spontaneous explosion of jazz!

All four albums plus have been digitally re-mastered for probably the finest ever sound quality! (AVID Entertainment)

Pee Wee Russell: Four Classic Albums Plus (CD: AVID, 2 CDs)Pee Wee Russell: Four Classic Albums Plus (CD: AVID, 2 CDs)
AVID Jazz here presents four classic Pee Wee Russell albums plus including original LP liner notes on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD. "Jazz at Storyville Vol 1"; "Jazz at Storyville Vol 2"; "Portrait Of Pee Wee"; "Pee Wee Russell Plays"; Jazz at Storyville Vol 1 & 2"……….

There is nothing complicated about the music on this album, it is straightforward, sincere blowing". Recorded live in 1952 at George Wein’s Storyville, musicians are primarily Ruby Braff on trumpet accompanied by Red Richards-piano, John Field-bass, Ephy Resnick-trombone and Kenny John on drums. "Portrait of PeeWee"……………Joined again by old pals Ruby Braff, Bud Freeman, Vic Dickenson alongside Karl Kiffe and Charles Potter with Nat Pierce on piano and arrangements. "Pee Wee Russell Plays"………….Pee Wee is joined by Bud Freeman, George Wettling, Eddie Condon, Dick Carey, Vic Dickenson, Buck Clayton and Bill Takas. Recorded in 1959 the title is extremely apt, for the session finds Pee Wee moving away from playing the well worn Dixieland standards and playing a dozen brand new selections all composed by the great man himself! There is some first rate solo work here, Braff shines on trumpet while Dickenson is always exciting and daring!

All four albums plus have been digitally re-mastered for probably the finest ever sound quality! (AVID Entertainment)

Vic Dickenson: Five Classic Albums Plus (CD: AVID, 2 CDs)
AVID Jazz here presents five classic Vic Dickenson related albums plus, including original LP liner notes on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD.

Vic Dickenson was a jazz man from the old school, a trombonist born in 1906 he had come up playing with the big bands including Count Basie. Hooking up with legendary producer John Hammond the two went on to produce a series of recordings that firmly set Dickenson in the "mainstream" category of jazz, somewhere between old school and bebop (a movement he had yet to embrace). We feature a host of Vic Dickenson music including Volumes 1-4 featuring the Vic Dickenson Septet, the album "Mainstream Jazz" with Vic playing in the Andy Gibson Orchestra, 2 tracks from "Mainstream" featuring the Vic Dickenson All Star Group, 4 tracks with Louis Armstrong?s Hot Seven and finally 3 tracks with Scatman Crothers. Among the fine musicians accompanying Dickenson on his musical journey are Ruby Braff, Shad Collins, Jo Jones, Milt Hinton, Kenny Burrell, Jimmy Jones, Buck Clayton and Edmund Hall. All five albums plus have been digitally re-mastered. (AVID Entertainment)

AVID Jazz here presents four classic Bud Freeman albums plus including original LP liner notes on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD.

More old school, old style classic jazz in the shape of tenor sax man Bud Freeman. In the case of our first selection, "Chicago/Austin High School Jazz In Hi-Fi" quite literally jazz from the old school! Chicago?s Austin High was where men like Freeman, Red McKenzie and Eddie Condon had all met in the 1920?s to play music inspired by the New Orleans jazz of King Oliver and Louis Armstrong that would go on to become the Chicago jazz sound. Musicians on the set include such Chicago influenced players as Pee Wee Russell, Jimmy McPartland, George Wettling and Jack Teagarden (Eddie Condon himself could not play having injured an arm playing badminton with his daughter)!! Another reunion in 1961 for "Chicago And All That Jazz" featuring the remnants of the Chicagoans including Bud on tenor, Eddie Condon on guitar, Gene Krupa on drums, Jack Teagarden on trombone with vocalists Lil Armstrong and Blossom Seeley. For the "Bud Freeman Group" and "Bud Freeman" selections we hear Bud in a smaller group setting featuring such musicians as Ruby Braff, Kenny Kersey, Al Hall and George Wettling. All four albums plus have been digitally re-mastered. (AVID Entertainment)
