Overview

1947 WNEW Saturday Night Swing Session

On this budget LP (which does not give the recording dates or a complete personnel listing), two radio broadcasts from 1947 are included. Two spirited numbers feature trumpeter Fats Navarro, trombonist Bill Harris, Charlie Ventura and Allen Eager on tenors, pianist Ralph Burns, guitarist Al Valente, bassist Chubby Jackson and drummer Buddy Rich while the other date is more swing-oriented with trumpeter Roy Eldridge, Flip Phillips on tenor, a four-piece rhythm section and singer Mel Torme who also sits in on drums. The music (which straddles the boundaries between bop and swing) is better than the packaging.
