Live! At Cafe Bohemia/1955 (Used)



SLEEVE: NM-  MEDIA: NM-  YEAR: 1984  ORIGIN: Japan  EXTRAS: Obi & insert

The people behind the Lone Hill Jazz label deserve some kind of humanitarian award for reissuing two of George Wallington's very best albums: Live! At Cafe Bohemia (recorded on September 9, 1955, and subsequently issued on both the Progressive and Prestige labels) and George Wallington Showcase (recorded in a studio for Blue Note on May 12, 1954).

The band heard at the Bohemia -- trumpeter Donald Byrd and alto saxophonist Jackie McLean in front of Wallington, Paul Chambers, and Art Taylor -- had the power and depth of ensembles led by Charles Mingus and Art Blakey during the mid- to late '50s.
