AVID Jazz here presents three classic Henry “Red” Allen” albums plus including original LP liner notes on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD.
“Red Allen Meets Kid Ory”, “We’ve Got Rhythm”, “Red Allen Plays King Oliver” and selections f rom “Newport Jazz Festival 1959”.
You don’t get more “old school” than the two fellows who join forces for our first two albums. Both are true jazz legends from the early days of jazz back in the 1920’s & 30’s. Kid Ory was born way back in 1886 for God’s sake and was playing trombone by 1896!! Not to mention giving the nickname “King” to Joe Oliver! For our third album “Plays King Oliver” Red pays tribute to his old boss King Oliver whom he joined in 1927 as second cornetist! He is joined by such stellar musicians as Herb Flemming, Buster Bailey, Milt Hinton and Sol Hall. We conclude with four tracks from Reds performance at the 1959 Newport Jazz festival in the company of amongst others Buster Bailey, Joe Higginbotham, Sammy Price and Kenny Burrell.
All three albums plus have been digitally re-mastered for probably the finest ever sound quality!
