Why Don't More People Listen to Spike?

"I read about Spike Robinson before I ever hard him play. Gene Lees did an essay on him a while back. Since then, sad to say, Spike has passsd on; but I'm glad he left us some recordings. He was an amateur player for most of his life--an engineer by profession, just sitting in on club dates. But, according to Lees, he was always a remarkable player.When he retired he went musical pro and did a small number of records before he died at a decently old age.Spike's work belongs to the Lester Young, Stan Getz, Zoot Sims school of sweet but swinging tenor playing. So if you if your taste in tenors runs to Coltrane and Stitt, you won't find Spike very exciting.But if you like Harry Allen, Scott Hamilton, and other such like romantic players, you'll love Spike. I do."
