Joe Newman: Happy Cats

Joe Newman: Happy Cats

Joe Newman doesn't get nearly enough credit for being a juicy jazz trumpeter. Usually, he's merely thought of as a member of Count Basie's post-1952 orchestra or as a sideman. But from 1954 to 1984, Newman recorded nearly 30 albums as a leader, with several others arriving after his passing in 1992. Many of these albums ...

As detailed in previous pieces, Fresh Sound is the only organization out there issuing these essential works, which otherwise would remain lost.
