TUBBY HAYES QUARTET - TUBBY'S GROOVE
Tubby Hayes for Tempo from 1960.
Tubby Hayes (ts), Terry Shannon (p), Phil Bates (b), Phil Seamen (d).
"Tin Tin Deo" killin' it every time for me on this rare piece of British wax from 50 years ago.
Simon Spillet has written a fascinating piece on Tubby at Jazzscript and here's his take on this album:
I think it's one of Tubby's best ever studio recordings and catches him very much in his prime. I suppose that the stand-out track for me has to be Sunny Monday with its unaccompanied tenor choruses. The tone is big, the rhythmic delivery is full of confidence and the sheer enthusiasm shines through half a century on.
