AVID Jazz here presents three classic Lionel Hampton albums plus including original LP liner notes on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD.
“Hamps Big Band”, “Lionel Plays Drums Vibes Piano”, “Lionel Hampton with the Just Jazz All Stars” plus selections from “Just Jazz”
Lionel Hampton started his jazz life playing drums with small bands in Chicago before moving to the West Coast in 1928.There he started playing piano with bands including Paul Howard and Les Hite just as his band had been taken over by none other than Louis Armstrong for whom Hampton played both vibes and piano. It was not until 1934 that Hampton started to work seriously with the vibes and became a specialist with the instrument. Two years later he was playing with Benny Goodman, Teddy Wilson and Gene Krupa!
Lionel is joined on our three selections by such luminaries as Charlie Shavers, Cat Anderson, Willie Smith, Milt Buckner, Barney Kessel, Slam Stewart and Charles Persip.
All three albums plus have been digitally re-mastered.
