everybodydigs#93 Lionel Hampton & Stan Getz – Hamp and Getz


everybodydigs# is a series of posts about Jazz, Funk, Soul & R’n’b albums released from the 20s to the 90s, you can read a brief description/review and listen to a small preview (when it’s possible). everybodydigs# is like when someone tells you “hey you should listen to this album!” and nothing less, enjoy!

The cool tenor of Stan Getz and the extroverted vibraphonist Lionel Hampton might have seemed like an unlikely matchup but once again producer Norman Granz showed his talents at combining complementary talents. Hampton and Getz really battle hard on “Cherokee” and “Jumpin’ at the Woodside” and, other than a ballad medley, the other selections on this albu, are also heated. Classic music from two of the best. (allmusic)
