Turk Murphy's Jazz Band Favorites, Vol. 2

by Turk Murphy
 
The second of two CDs reissuing all of trombonist Turk Murphy's performances for Good Time Jazz starts out with the very first session Murphy led: four hot numbers (including "Shake That Thing" and "Kansas City Man Blues") that feature a quintet also including trumpeter Bob Scobey, clarinetist Bob Helm, pianist

Overview

The second of two CDs reissuing all of trombonist Turk Murphy's performances for Good Time Jazz starts out with the very first session Murphy led: four hot numbers (including "Shake That Thing" and "Kansas City Man Blues") that feature a quintet also including trumpeter Bob Scobey, clarinetist Bob Helm, pianist Burt Bales, and banjoist Harry Mordecai. The other selections generally find Murphy heading a septet with either Scobey or Don Kinch on trumpet. Overall, the music is hard-driving, straightforward Dixieland, played with an eye toward the past but not imitative of past versions. Both CDs are highly recommended to trad jazz collectors.
