Lo-Fi, audiophile recording. Reissue of 1951, 10 ‘ English Brunswick LP from 78 rpm Decca originals of 1940s. A surprisingly pleasant record in the atmosphere, Hampton is not a virtuoso, but a vibraphone poet, what a touching version of “Time on my hands”he has! The sextet is excellent, no one interferes with the soloist, as is often the case in democratic jazz.
