All-Star Bags

Very nice clean double album housed in a gatefold cover with original inner sleeves.

This two-LP set contains a great deal of valuable and enjoyable music, reissuing three earlier albums. The highly influential vibraphonist Milt Jackson is heard in a quintet with altoist Lou Donaldson and pianist John Lewis in 1952 on six songs and three alternate takes. Jackson teams up with tenor-saxophonist Hank Mobley (actually the original leader of the date) and pianist Horace Silver in 1957 and he pops up as a featured soloist with trumpeter Art Farmer and tenor-saxophonist Benny Golson in 1958; Golson provided the arrangements on the latter session. Throughout, Bags swings hard and uplifts each of the rather diverse recordings.
