After the great response I received from the last PJP, where we looked at comping, I decided to do another; this time from a lesser known, but killer record by a bari sax player named Serge Chaloff. Chaloff played bari in most of the great big bands (Ellington, Basie, Jimmy Dorsey, Woody Herman) and is considered the first bebop bari sax player. Unfortunately, like so many jazz greats of the time, Serge died young. He, like Jones, battled heroin addiction, but was able to get himself clean before dying of spinal cancer.
In this recording of How About You? we again hear Philly Joe teamed up with Sonny Clark and bassist LeRoy Vinnegar. Check out the last PJP post for some notes about Philly Joe's ride pattern, shaping, etc.
