Bill%2BHarris%2B-%2BLive%2BAt%2BBirdland

"From Boris Rose's Lacquer Master Tapes".  This music is perfect for driving around in the car.  Since the audio fidelity is not the greatest, one can imagine being transported back in time, to a time when  Alben Barkley still had a job, and one is driving around in a DeSoto listening to these "live" broadcasts.  Mr. Harris is accompanied at various times by Horace Silver, Lockjaw Davis, Chubby Jackson, Dona Abney and the surprise for me, drummer Ed Shaughnessy.  I never would have pictured the old Tonight Show drummer playing with Horace Silver.  The CD also includes some bonus tracks from 1945-46

Lacquer Master Tapes is nonsensical. Duh!

A nice session. I always liked his tone. He’s kind of forgotten today. The Highnote disc of him and Charlie Ventura at the Three Deuces is not bad.

Great record from the short lived Electra Musician Label. I saw the group with the same personnel in 1983 at Wiesen.

This CD title is quite misleading. The title suggests that Griff and Bags play together throughout the disc. In fact that is not the case at all. On the first 6 tracks neither Griffin or Bags appear. Milt Jackson does play on tracks 7-11 but without Griffin. Tracks tracks 12 -16 do have Johnny Griffin but no Bags.

The first 6 tracks are just ok. The remaining tracks are better, but not outstanding.
