One For My Baby - Eddie Heywood

One For My Baby
Eddie Heywood At The Piano
Mercury Records
MG 20632

Personnel: Eddie Heywood – piano, Albert Lucas – bass, David Franci – drums, Donald Lamond replaces Francis on drums on the third session.

From the back cover: This album was recorded in three sessions in a New York recording studio, and was made in both stereo and monaural.

Also from the back cover: Happily, jazz-rooted Eddie Heywood gives evidence of his more soulful origins on One For My Baby, his third album for Mercury. Heywood admirers will recall his memorable stint with the Benny Carter big band (1939 - 1940). His own swinging sextet gained wide credence in the early forties, including an Esquire magazine New Star award for the leader in 1945.
