Lionel Hampton

This is a collection of many jazz standards released later in Hampton's lengthy career (1977) but it doesn't seem that much changed in Mr. Hampton's recipe.

I first encountered Lionel Hampton as a co-star in the Danny Kaye film "A Song is Born" which also starred the likes of Louis Armstrong, Benny Goodman and Tommy Dorsey. I've found a few records of his over the years; like many of them, they've not really been listened to.
