The complete Chuck WIllis 1951-1957 - Okeh & Atlantic (JSP)

Is the Freddie Jackson who ran Chuck's band the same as Fred Jackson, who later worked with Lloyd Price, John Patton & Baby Face Willette?

and who recorded Hootin and Tootin, which I have, I thought as I saw this. But then I thought: but is he? Is it the same man? And on reading the Wikipedia link I see he is.

Yes, there are one or two tracks on this where his sound is unmistakeable.

disc one - very nice!

too bad though the book won't fit into the oversize (but too small for the book - looks like a production gaffe to me) box

and too bad that hardly anything in the book is in english!

Thanks colin and kh. I'm a fan of jazz flute, Newton, Rivers, Kenyatta amongst others and Threadgill definitely so I think I may plug the gap

Dolphy!

add Wess and Lateef as two of the finest of the earlier days - Wess' tone and control is hard to beat, I think!
