AVID JAZZ gets in the groove with one of the master drummers in modern jazz, Shelly Manne.
Perhaps unfairly better known as the owner of his famous jazz club Shellys Manne Hole and as a prolific and high energy sideman for the likes of Stan Kenton, Woody Herman and Bill Evans where he was present on the great pianists debut album on Verve in 1962 Empathy.
Here we feature a classic Shelly Manne LP My Fair Lady alongside a long underrated jazz pianist Andre Previn in the days before he would become a prolific conductor and arranger.
Listening to Previns work here should put a final end to any discussions about his ability as a jazz pianist and indeed his jazz chops!
Also included, tracks from The Three & The Four another forgotten classic featuring Manne alone with Bass and Piano respectively.
Topped off with Trio and Quartet recordings from 1956 our fine remastered collection is a timely reminder if one were needed ( and it often is!!) of what a great drummer Shelly Manne is and why twenty years after his death he is still up there amongst the very great jazz drummers.
