The full Lionel Hampton story is related within the 44 page booklet which also includes the usual rare photographs and track details. Performers alongside Hampton include Dizzy Gillespie, Illinois Jacquet, Arnett Cobb, Johnny Griffin, Wes Montgomery, Charles Mingus, Bing Crosby, Barney Kessel and Benny Bailey. When it comes to big bands, most jazz critics talk about Ellington as being the longest-lived. They conveniently forget the brawling, crude but hugely vibrant and influential Lionel Hampton outfit, which even today thunders on, close on 60 years later.
