The Louis Bellson Explosion

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ron Wynn
A fine mid-'70s date that was both a showcase for Bellson's bombastic drumming and also a nice straight-ahead date with great contributions from Blue Mitchell, Snookey Young, Dick Mitchell and others. It's been reissued on CD.
