For trumpet fans
Nikica Gilic | Zagreb, Croatia | 01/17/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Admittedly, this nice 1961 LP - CD does start on the hottest number (Chittlin') and doesn't sustain the heeth... But both "Shorty" Baker (one of the Ellingtonians) and Cheatham (in future becoming a major elder statesman of jazz) play really fine, in spite of Walter Bishop's piano being somewhat lost between the stars of the album and his own musical proclivities (he WAS one of the Charlie Parker+s pianists)...

All in all, a good listening experience, although not really essential. If you believe all sorts of jazz guides I consulted (Rough Guide, All Music), Cheatham actually improved in years following this date, so I'll probably check into that. For Baker, who was the more famous one when this was recorded, there are no other small band albums mentioned in the sources I consulted, so this is a special project for him..."

"Trumpeters Shorty Baker and Doc Cheatham join up in this consistently fine CD, recorded in 1961. Half the tunes are slow ballads or blues, done beautifully. This is a solid date that will not disappoint."
