V.S.O.P. #20 Tampa #34/Dig J101 THE BUDDY COLLETTE/CHICO HAMILTON SEXTET: TANGANYIKA
w/Buddy Collette (reeds), John Anderson (trumpet), Gerald Wiggins (piano), Jim Hall (guitar), Curtis Counce (bass), Chico Hamilton (drums).
Recorded October 11, 1956, Capitol Records Studios, Hollywood, CA. Engineer: John Kraus
This sextet, with three members of the Chico Hamilton Quintet, presents a program of interesting music, for the most part arranged by Buddy Collette. In part reminiscent of the first release by the Chico Hamilton Quintet on Pacific jazz, there are enough straight ahead tunes to more than satisfy less eclectic tastes. Very well recorded, with fine performances by all.
