This recording features an arrangement by Manny Albam; it includes contrary-motion counterpoint on the head, a "send-off" for the piano solo, and a tag ending. Our lead sheet, however, only shows the melody chorus; this song works just as well without the arrangement.
Frank Socolow and Eddie Costa played together on five big band albums by composer/arranger Manny Albam. Eddie Bert played with Socolow in several other big bands, including those of Boyd Raeburn, Elliot Lawrence, Johnny Richards and Gene Krupa. One month after Socolow's session, Costa and Bert played on some of guitarist Sal Salvador's Bethlehem album "Shades Of Sal Salvador," again with Jimmy Campbell on drums.
September 18, 1923 – April 30, 1981
Often overlooked as he played primarily in big bands and only recorded two sessions as a leader, Frank Socolow was nonetheless a modestly important figure on the early bebop scene. He is best known for his first recording as a leader, a May 1945 quintet session featuring the under-recorded but legendary trumpeter Freddie Webster as well as then-emerging master pianist Bud Powell. This session is notable for being Powell's first recording outside of Cootie Williams' big band and sextet. Read more...
