J.A.T.P 1949
(Pablo PACD 5311-2)


Normal Granz's Jazz At The Philharmonic tours were events
held in high-class venues. Carnegie Hall in New York or the Civic Opera House in Chicago, for example. The audience, attired to for these classical halls,
came to cheer their favorite artists through free-wheeling jams that included battling horns and drums--the Buddy Rich-Gene Krupa wars were legendary--to small ensembles performances. This 1949 concert features Charlie Parker, Sonny Criss, Coleman Hawkins, Hank Jones, Shelly Manne, Fats Navarro, Flip Phillips, Tommy Turk and Ray Brown.
