Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel includes: Red Norvo (xylophone, marimba); Charlie Barnet, Chu Berry (tenor saxophone); Bunny Berigan (trumpet); Artie Shaw (clarinet); Benny Goodman (bass clarinet); Eddie Sauter (mellophone, arranger); Teddy Wilson (piano).
  • Personnel: Red Norvo (vibraphone, marimba, xylophone).
  • Recording information: 04/18/1933-03/16/1936.
  • The first 26 selections that xylophonist Red Norvo ever led are on this essential (and generous) CD. Among the many illustrious sidemen are future bandleaders Benny Goodman (heard on bass clarinet during memorable versions of "In a Mist" and "Dance of the Octopus"), Jimmy Dorsey, Artie Shaw, Jack Jenney, Charlie Barnet, and Bunny Berigan in addition to Chu Berry, Teddy Wilson, and Gene Krupa. While the first half of the program features all-star groups, the later tracks are prime examples of small-group swing with arranger Eddie Sauter's mellophone, Stew Pletcher's trumpet, and Herbie Haymer's tenor playing key roles. This readily available CD from the Scottish label Hep contains more than its share of classic performances, and is essential. ~ Scott Yanow
