Cobb, Arnett - A Proper Introduction (special)
Released on Proper, a great UK label who do an amazing job in terms of packaging, presentation and especially in terms of sonics. This is fun, jumping proto-rock 'n' roll/rhythm & blues, basic repertoire material. A great place to hear some of his best stuff and at a amazing price.
"A stomping Texas tenor player in the tradition of Illinois Jacquet, Arnett Cobb's accessible playing was between swing and early rhythm & blues. This Proper Introduction covers his time with Lionel Hampton's band and his solo sides up to 1953, and is the perfect showcase for his honking tenor sound."
