Coon - Sanders Nighthawks, Vol. 2 CD (1998)
Buddy Rich & His Legendary '47-'48 Orchestra songs Coon-Sanders Original Nighthawk Orchestra includes: Carleton Coon (vocals, drums); Joe Sanders (vocals, piano); Harold Thiell, John Thiell (alto saxophone, clarinet); Floyd Estep (tenor saxophone, clarinet); Joe Richolson, Bob Pope (trumpet); Rex Downing (trombone); Russ Stout (banjo); Elmer Krebs (bass). Recorded in Chicago, Illinois between 1926 & 1928. Includes liner notes by Randy Skretvedt. The second of four CDs put out by The Old Masters label that includes every one of the master takes recorded by the popular Coon-Sanders Nighthawks has 23 selections that trace the band's evolution during an important two-year period. It is a measure of the group's stability and success that there were no personnel changes during the period, and that the band continued to evolve without changing its basic approach or sound. Both drummer Carleton Coon and pianist Joe Sanders (an inventive arranger) were fine singers, among the best in jazz during this time. Although the group featured no major soloists (the emphasis tended to be on ensembles), the level of musicianship was quite high. Among the highlights of this highly enjoyable set are "Deep Henderson," "My Baby Knows How," "Brainstorm," "I Ain't Got Nobody," "Louder and Funnier," "Ready for the River," and "Blazin'," but every selection is well worth hearing by fans of the era. This is the strongest of the four TOM CDs, although all four are recommended to 1920s collectors. ~ Scott Yanow 23 tracks, inc. 7 written by Joe Sanders, inc.

Buddy Rich & His Legendary '47-'48 Orchestra album for sale Drummer Buddy Rich is heard leading his own ensembles on 21 postwar big-band recordings compiled in this second volume of his collected early works, released in 1998 by the Hep record label. This terrain has been traversed by the Classics Chronological Series as well; the two series make for an interesting comparison. Perusal of the collective personnel reveals the presence of several individuals destined for progressive careers in early modern jazz; these include saxophonists Hal McKusick, Warne Marsh, Jimmy Giuffre, and Al Cohn, as well as vibraphonist and future bandleader Terry Gibbs. Vocals are by Dottie Reid and arrangements are credited to Jimmy Mundy, Neal Hefti, and Johnny Mandel. ~ arwulf arwulf Audio Remixer: Ted Kendall.
