Lucky Thompson - Tom Kattin'

 

Lucky Thompson - Tom Kattin'

Sunbeam Album, Recorded January February 1956 Lucky Thompson, tenor sax Jimmy Cleveland, trombone Hank Jones, piano Oscar Pettiford, bass Osie Johnson, drums In late 1945, one of Lucky Thomson's gig in Los Angeles was a member of the Dizzy Gillespie Bebop Six. He was hired because of the erratic habits of the co-star, Charlie Parker. During 1946 and '47, Lucky was the most requested tenor man in the L.A. area. He was the first major jazzman to adopt the soprano saxophone - predating John Coltrane. I do not own the copyright to the music, the recording and the photos.
