Price: $12.00
Earl Bostic is arguably now best remembered as one of the pioneers of the post war Rhythm & Blues movement of which he was a major player. His name would not necessarily jump out if you were asked to name ten of the best alto sax players ever. And yet he was up there amongst the best when he began his career back in the 1930’s firmly in the jazz tradition. He played with the likes of Lionel Hampton, Charlie Christian, Arnett Cobb, Don Byas, Thelonious Monk and Cab Calloway. He arranged for the likes of Paul Whiteman, Lionel Hampton, Gene Krupa, Artie Shaw, Louis Prima and Jack Teagarden. By the late 1940’s Bostic turned towards the upcoming new R&B movement and after signing to the King label, produced a series of hit singles and albums...
