Modern Jazz - Ronnie Lang

Midnight Sun
Modern Jazz
Ronnie Lang And His All Stars
TOPS L1521

Hot TOPS cover but...

From Billboard - January 26, 1957: Quality, more than price, usually dictates jazz sales. This 12-incher is tagged at $1.49, the cover is intriguing and the 12 good tunes (mainly well-known standards) are listed on the cover, where the rack buyers can spot 'em. With Lang, but not listed on the front, are Dave Pell, Marty Palch and Bob Enevoldsen, all of the West Coast clique. The jazz is bland and uninspired. Possibly there will be some "impulse" sales, but the "cats" will probably shun this.
