The Fabulous Fats Navarro Vol. 2 (US Mono RVG Ear)
Warning: Last items in stock!
Picking up some of the slack from the first volume, The Fabulous Fats Navarro, Vol. 2 takes in two fine 1948 sessions featuring the bebop trumpeter. The first three cuts come from a Tadd Dameron-led date featuring top players like Dexter Gordon, Cecil Payne, Kai Winding, Sahib Shihab, and Kenny Clarke. The group avails itself nicely on Dameron originals like the mercurial Latin cut "Jahbero" (including congas and bongos), the classic "Lady Bird," and the predictably complex "Symphonette."
Recorded by Rudy van Gelder at the Apex Studios, NYC, on September 13, 1948 (tracks A1 to A6), on October 11, 1948 (tracks B1, B4, B5) and at the WOR Studios, NYC, on August 9, 1949 (B2, B3).
