AVID Jazz here presents four classic Edmond Hall albums as leader and sideman, plus, including original LP liner notes on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD.
“Petite Fleur”, “Rumpus On Rampart Street”, “ Teddy Buckner and the All Stars” and “ Jazz at the Savoy” plus selections from “Jazz at Storyville” “Edmond Hall in Buenos Aires”.
Edmond Hall was born into a musical family in Reserve, Louisiana in 1901, his father played the clarinet and all his brothers were fine musicians. Hall paid his dues during the 1920’s and ‘30’s playing with among others Billie Holiday, Joe Sullivan, Red Allen, Teddy Wilson, Eddie Condon and finally the great Louis Armstrong from 1950 – 1955. With a few short spells running his own band along the way, the late 1950’s finally saw Hall go freelance and form his own band. He was considered one of the great clarinettist in the New Orleans tradition. According to great supporter Nat Hentoff in his liner notes for “Rumpus On Rampart Street”, “he is playing the hottest clarinet in contemporary jazz”. A gentle and polite individual off stage he became a deeply swinging and intensely emotional improviser once he had his clarinet in his hands! A long time sideman, Hall was happiest as his own leader where his love of improvisation could take full flight. Lets leave the final words to Nat Hentoff from his notes on “Petite Fleur” commenting that this album represents “ what Edmond has to say more fully and vigorously than any other collection of his work”………..Praise indeed!
All four albums plus have been digitally re-mastered for probably the finest sound quality ever!
