Illinois Jacquet And His Tenor Sax (re-up)

A 1983 Pathe Marconi reissue of an album originally released by Aladdin as a 10 incher in 1954 and then as a twelve incher in 1956. This was originally posted on Be Bop Wino in October 2009. Illinois Jacquet was an important figure in the development of both jazz and R&B tenor saxophone. His wild performance on the live cut of "Blues" from the first Jazz At The Philharmonic concert is probably the root of the honking and squealing R&B tenor sax.

"Flying Home, Parts 1 and 2" was the first disc issued on the Mesner Brothers' Philo label in 1945. "Uptown Boogie" / "Throw It Out Of Your Mind Baby" was the second issue on the label which was later renamed Aladdin. All other tracks on this LP were recorded in 1947. For more information on Illinois Jacquet and these recordings please read the original post here:
