Some of the best of the Hampton pick-up sides
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Hampton is a controversial figure in jazz, with his pronounced detractors, but he is nonetheless associated with some of the greatest of swing era recordings. Several of them, though by no means all all are on this disk -- Blue Because of You (with Nat Cole), Jack the Bellboy with Hampton playing drums out of his mind. He was a GREAT drummer, though not subtle. The other two re-releases in the series, Hot Mallets and The Jumpin' Jive, which perhaps are no longer available, are in fact better overall than this one, and are essential in any comprehensive swing collection."
