Synopsis

Album Description
It was almost a decade ago that an off-the-cuff suggestion by legendary vibraphone master Lionel Hampton inspires the Who's Who In Jazz album series, a classic collection of recordings the likes of which can't be found under any other label. These aren't after-the-fact compilations of existing recordings. These are performances done expressly for the Who's Who In Jazz series by artists known to music lovers the world over; Wynton Marsalis playing with Art Blakey, Carmen McRae, Charles Mingus, Sonny Stitt, Lionel Hampton, and more. Presented here is the first gathering of selections from the first decade of Who's Who In Jazz recordings. These are unique performances, some live, all memorable. The sampling of the best of Who's Who In Jazz soon will be considered a necessary part of any fine music collection. Enjoy!
