This 1956 session includes the great tenor Illinois Jacquet accompanied by Roy Eldridge, Jimmy Jones, Herb Ellis, Ray Brown and Jo Jones.
Fremer Rated 9 out of 10 for Music, 10 out of 10 for Sound!
"Don't let the October 16th 1956 mono recording date fool you: this Jean-Baptiste "Illinois" Jacquet session was recorded in Los Angeles, probably at legendary Radio Recorders, and the sound will knock you down...If the opener "Las Vegas Blues" doesn't get you, the second tune, the familiar "Harlem Nocturne" will! The sonic mood is strictly fish net stockings "film noir." When Jacquet reaches down to the lower limits of his tenor on "...Nocturne" you'll feel as if the walls of your listening room just might crumble." - Michael Fremer, Music Angle, Music 9/10, Sound 10/10
