Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Barney Kessel (guitar); Bob Cooper (tenor saxophone, oboe); Claude Williamson, Hampton Hawes (piano); Monty Budwig, Red Mitchell (bass); Chuck Thompson, Shelly Manne (drums).
  • Recorded in Los Angeles, California on June 4 and July 1, 1954 and September 12, 1955. Originally released on Contemporary (3512). Includes original liner notes by Barney Kessel.
  • Guitarist Barney Kessel teams up with Bob Cooper (mostly on oboe but also doubling a bit on tenor), either Claude Williamson or Hampton Hawes on piano, Monty Budwig or Red Mitchell on bass, and Shelly Manne or Chuck Thompson on drums. Other than his own "64 Bars on Wilshire" and "Barney's Blues," the repertoire on this CD reissue is comprised of jazz standards. Inventive frameworks and the utilization of Cooper's jazz oboe (a real rarity in jazz of the time) give the otherwise boppish reissue its own personality. ~ Scott Yanow
