Let's Ball Tonight! - Earl Bostic And His Alto Sax

Let's Ball Tonight!
Yes, the veteran big band alto saxophonist from Tulsa, Oklahoma, whose career was given a new lease of life in the early 1950s with his arousing, bump-and-grind, jazz-for-strippers rehashes of old swing era hits like "Flamingo", "Temptation" and "Sleep". This compilation ignores those oft-released hits in favour of Bostic's prime R&B years as one of the hottest saxophone men in the business, worshipped by everyone from Charlie Parker on down.

His bands attracted the likes of jazz-gods-inwaiting Stanley Turrentine, Benny Golson and John Coltrane, but these hot tracks feature solid R&B players like John Hardee, Count Hstings and Rene Hall. In among the breath-takingly fast jump instrumentals are great vocal performances from Roger Jones, Clyde Terrell and Bostic and the band ensemble.

Available for the first time on CD this is the ultimate Earl Bostic collection! Featuring a beautiful booklet packed with pics and memorabilia and full-on notes by Dave Penny, this is a must for all closet jazzers and rockers....Beatniks and Zoot Suiters alike will go crazy for this....28 insane sax-sational tracks!
