After stints with Lionel Hampton and Cab Calloway, this tenor man took center stage. His sax is backed by Charles Mingus, Bill Doggett and Joe Newman on these 1945-47 recordings. He dazzles on ferocious swingers and tender ballads alike: Bottoms Up; 12 Minutes to Go; South Street Special; Merle's Mood; Jacquet Bounce; Diggin' the Count; What's This 23 tracks!
Illinois Jacquet was to the 1940's what Sonny Rollins and Herbie Hancock would be to the 50's and 60's: a precocious young cat with bags full of talent who sprang from Lional Hampton's big band, after putting Hamp on the map with Flying Home, to Count Basie's, where he delivered another knockout blow with The King! Only to realise that with his crowd pulling ability he was better off forming his own unit, and what a unit it..
