Overview

Alto saxophonist Earl Bostic remains underappreciated by jazz fans due to the popular R&B/jump blues hits he registered in the '50s, but with classics like "Flamingo" and "Cherokee," he brought a little class and rumble to Saturday night jukeboxes. His various bands also provided early platforms for jazz players like John Coltrane, Blue Mitchell, Stanley Turrentine, and Benny Golson, among others. This brief playlist makes a quick (but again, very brief) introduction to this fine but largely forgotten player.
