Benny Bailey - Big Brass

Product Code: CCD 79011
Availability: In Stock



One of the most exhilarating sounds in jazz is that made by a trumpet swung with bold, brass proud assurance. Benny Bailey featured with Quincy Jones' band, with his brilliant tone and soaring beat.

This album was recorded a short time after Quincy's band came back to America following almost a year in Europe. Benny had been away much longer, having lived in Europe since 1953.

For his first American album, Benny chose four colleagues from the Quincy Jones band - Phil woods, Buddy Catlett, Les Spann and Julius Watkins. He picked Tommy Flanagan and Art Taylor to complete the rhythm section and to achieve diversity, he commissioned several arrangers.
