Freddy Gambrell

11 posts in this topic

Listening to "Introducing Freddy Gambrell" with Chico Hamilton.  Really nice, Tatum-influenced stuff, some of it more in, some more heading out.  Have never heard of him before.  Anyone have any thoughts or info on him?

Interesting album cover

I thought it looked familiar:

Never heard of him, but I very much enjoyed listening to the entire album on youtube. Freddie's real name was Federico Cervantes, and discogs.com lists only one other title under his name:

I had the Pacific LP with Tucker and let it go on account of being IMO pretty dull. Nothing terrible but too much like cocktail lounge music.

I share what Clunky said. Not an interesting jazz album.

Different album than the one I a heard.  Mine was the trio album with Tucker and Chico Hamilton, not the duo album with Tucker.  Any thoughts on the one I heard?  I certainly find something like this to have jazz value, at least in a Gene Harris - Ray Bryant - etc. sort of way.

I think it's excellent. His "out" tendencies are what make this trio album special — it's much better than the duo album.
