| ||Flip Phillips: Four Classic Albums (CD: AVID, 2 CDs)|
AVID Jazz here presents four classic Flip Phillips albums plus including original LP liner notes on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD. Here we feature four albums plus from clarinettist turned tenor saxophonist Flip Phillips, a stalwart of first the Woody Herman Herd and later as one of the mainstays of the Jazz At The Philharmonic line up with Norman Granz. "The Flip Phillips - Buddy Rich Trio"; "Flip"; "Flip Wails" and "Swinging With Flip"
We catch Flip in many different line ups across our four selections
As a Trio with Buddy Rich and Hank Jones on piano from 1952 (also in attendance Ray Brown on bass on half the selections). With orchestra on "Swinging With Flip" where he is joined by Charlie Shavers, Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, Barney Kessel and Buddy Rich
not a bad line up!! Another classic line up with orchestra joins Flip for "Flip Wails"
..and wail he certainly does alongside Bill Harris, Billy Bauer, Harry Edison, Hank Jones, Ray Brown and Buddy Rich! Finally "Flip" where our hero is joined again by the orchestra with Howard McGhee and Benny Green. All four albums plus have been digitally re-mastered. (AVID Entertainment)
