Red Norvo (born Kenneth Norville, March 31, 1908 – April 6, 1999) was one of jazz's early vibraphonists, known as "Mr. Swing". He helped establish the xylophone, marimba, and vibraphone as jazz instruments. His recordings included "Dance of the Octopus", "Bughouse", "Knockin' on Wood", "Congo Blues", and "Hole in the Wall". Red Norvo was born in Beardstown, Illinois. His career began in Chicago with a band called "The Collegians" in 1925.
I'm a jazz guitarist and collector of jazz albums. I think this is a very unique and special album. I confess, being a guitarist, Tal Farlow was the draw, and Tal does not disappoint (nor do Charles Mingus or Red Norvo). The musicianship here is pretty mind-boggling. Red Norvo had a penchant for FAST tempos, and many of these tracks absolutely burn. The arrangements all have a distinct, cool-swinging, 1950's vibe that I really enjoy.
