Chu complete
Bomojaz | South Central PA, USA | 03/12/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This CD in the Chronological Classics series issues all of Chu's releases under his own leadership. The best session is the first one he made for Commodore in 1938 with Roy Eldridge on trumpet. Both men play at their best on this date. Almost as good is the Columbia/Variety date of September 1937 that had Irving Randolph on trumpet; this session includes the famous "Chuberry jam." Chu had a big tenor sound with roots in the Coleman Hawkins school. He died in a car wreck shortly after the last session on this disc was made--a great loss to jazz. Recommended."
