Jazztime U.S.A. Volume 2

Honeysuckle Rose
Jazztime U.S.A.
Volume 2
Recorded at Pythian Temple, New York City, April 13, 1953
Burnswick Records BL 54001

From Billboard - August 22, 1953: The selections on this 12-inch LP were recorded at Pythian Temple, New York, in April of this year. The sounds of the audience who attended the jazz concert are in the grooves. This, plus the fact that the date was done at a concert rather than in a studio, lends a touch of informality. The artists represented cover a wide range, both in types of jazz and style of performance. There are such top jazz names as Georgie Auld and His All Stars, Charlie Shavers, Ed Safranski; young, upcoming classically-trained artists as Tony Scott, Stuff Smith, Terry Gibbs and many others. The talent also includes a performance by Moondog, the itinerant musician who specializes in odd rhythmic studies. This reviewer personally thought the selection of material played could have been greatly improved. The album should appeal to jazz fans, however.
