Billy Eckstine w/Bobby Tucker Quartet

Is this everything from this date/sessions/project/whatever?

  • Tenderly
  • One For My Baby
  • If You Could See Me Now
  • Smoke Gets In Your Eyes
  • Laura
  • Mister, You've Gone And Got The Blues
  • Ill Wind
  • April In Paris

Bobby Tucker, Barney Kessell, Red Callender (iirc), & Lee Young...a pretty remarkable set, actually, I want to make sure I'm not missing anything from it.

Interestingly, perhaps, at one point packaged by MGM as a "programme", almost a "concept album". https://www.discogs.com/Billy-Eckstine-Tenderly/master/991828

Here's the one that has been messing me up for about a week now, convention at once fully embraced and totally defied + breath control out the ass. Breath control, phrasing, pitch, time, every damn thing, stick around for the last note,  BILLY ECKSTINE!!!!

yes, this 8 tracks are all from the two sessions from 14.07.52 and 23.07.52. according to denis brown´s eckstine discography (joyce 1996/2000) and salemann´s "roots of modern jazz vol. 19. (2010).

Keep boppin´

Thanks for confirming. I'd be quite happy if more turned up, but that seems unlikely at this point.
