I like Curly Russell's playing on this one. Too bad he didn't get many more record dates after this - at least as far as I know of.

Another session documenting him adequately happened just one month prior to "Introducing ...." aka in March 1957 and resulted in the Clifford Jordan/John Gilmore gem "Blowing In From Chicago" ....

Forgot about that one. There may be others I've forgotten too.

This past weekend:

George Benson, In Concert: Carnegie Hall (CTI). Three songs with prime Benson guitar, one turkey of a track journeying into crooner-land.

Urbie Green, The Fox (CTI). Good first side.

Sonny Criss, Joy of Sax (Impulse). Overproduced commercial effort, but Sonny Criss still sounds great.

Keith Jarrett, Mysteries (Impulse). I wish Dewey Redman were still alive.

Charlie Byrd, Mr. Guitar (Riverside).

His Wikipedia entry says he left the music business in the late 1950s. I think I read somewhere that he was driving a taxi sometime after that. Sadly for him, jazz bass playing had moved on. A bass player friend of mine in the sixties was very critical of of Russell's playing - and of some others of his era - pointing out "wrong notes" he was playing on Parker-era recordings. Of course, my friend went into raptures over Paul Chambers and Doug Watkins. Percy Heath seemed to be the first of the new generation that he could stomach.

I imagine that Bird employed him because of his time keeping abilities. As time went on, bass players went on to other things - for better or worse.

Jam_Session_featuring_Maynard_Ferguson.j

Maynard Ferguson - Jam Session (Emarcy). Nice original pressing. Maynard is kind of bombastic, but the others, especially Herb Geller, Claude Williamson, and Max Roach, play very tastefully.
