Album Notes and Credits
This set contains three complete albums recorded between 1959 and '64 by jazz trumpeter Charlie Shavers.
Personnel: Charlie Shavers (vocals, trumpet); Ray Bryant (piano).
Liner Note Authors: John Flanagan; Nat Hentoff.
Recording information: New York, NY (1959-1964); Paris, France (1959-1964).
Arranger: Charlie Shavers.
Most of Charlie Shavers' recordings from the 1954-1964 period have been reissued on five single CDs by the Lone Hill Jazz label. The virtuoso trumpeter was at the peak of his powers during this period but his recordings were made for small labels and he was greatly overshadowed by quite a few other brassmen. Complete Recordings, Vol. 2 has the complete contents of the LPs Memorial and Here Comes Charlie, plus three numbers from his Charlie Shavers at Le Crazy Horse Saloon album. The focus is almost entirely on Shavers' horn, for he is in the spotlight throughout while backed by pianist Ray Bryant (who is very much in a supportive role), bassist Aaron Bell, and drummer Roy Burns. Shavers takes quite a few spectacular solos and, although the performances are mostly very concise (nearly all of the selections are under three-minutes long), the trumpeter makes every note count during the consistently exciting program. ~ Scott Yanow
