Info for Vibes a la Red (Remasterd)
Red Norvo has been one of my jazz heroes ever since "Dance of the Octopus and the big band records of the Norvo-Mildred Bailey Commodore Band (who can forget that sax section sound in "Remember"?) Red has been responsible for the rise of many musicians: Eddie Sauter, Herbie Haymer, Dave Barbour, Stew Fletcher, to name a few of the Norvo-Bailey band....
"This long out of print LP from the defunct Famous Door label was vibraphonist Red Norvo's first date as a leader in five years (since an Affinity session with the Newport All-Stars). Although largely neglected in the 1960s, Norvo was still in prime form as he shows on such numbers as "The One I Love," "Tea for Two," and "Runnin' Wild." He is heard either with a quartet, also including pianist Hank Jones, bassist Milt Hinton, and drummer Jo Jones, or a quintet with pianist Jimmie Rowles, bassist Gene Cherico, drummer Donald Bailey, and guitarist Lloyd Ellis. High quality swing from one of the great vibraphonists." (Scott Yanow, AMG)
