Harry Babasin • Harry Babasin & The Jazz Pickers

Review by Scott Yanow
Harry Babasin was (along with Oscar Pettiford) probably the first bassist to play jazz cello. This LP reissue of a set originally for the MOD (Music of the Day) label features Babasin's Jazz Pickers (a quartet with guitarist Dempsey Wright, bassist Ben Tucker, and drummer Bill Douglass), plus guest vibraphonist Terry Gibbs. The music (five Babasin originals and three veteran standards) swings hard but lightly with Babasin's cello solos being the date's most unusual feature.

  1. Tengo este disco en vinilo desde hace años por cierto con una fea raya en la cara b. Ahora lo podré escuchar sin chasquidos.
    Gracias y saludos.
