This is a great set. It was a kind of early concept album (the premise being that Pete Johnson has bought a house and has nobody to celebrate with. Luckily for Pete, and all of us, some of his friends drop by to help out.) It was recorded (over two sessions in January) and released in 1946. Later on it saw re-release on a vinyl LP (on the great Savoy label) as "House Rent Party" and still later as "Pete's blues". Both Lp versions included five more tracks also recorded in 1946.

The Personnel (In Order Of Appearance):

Pete Johnson - Piano (All tracks)
J.C. Heard - Drums (Tracks 2-8 )
Jimmy Shirley - Guitar (Tracks 3-8 )
Al Hall - Bass (Tracks 3-8 )
Albert Nicholas - Clarinet (Tracks 4-8 )
Ben Webster - Tenor (Tracks 5-8 )
Oran "Hot Lips" Page - Trumpet (Tracks 6-8 )
J.C. Higginbotham - Trombone (Tracks 7-8 )

One musician (or, as in the case of Track 3, two musicians) join in until the full band is creating some marvelous Jazz and as you can see, all of the musicians can be heard on the final track. This is a remarkable document of a style of Jazz that was very popular at one time.

no matter what monetary "Value" you eventually assign to this set, it is worth infinitely more in GROOVE value.


Sorry, if I took up anybody's time (sometimes I ramble), but I just wanted to say a few words about (what I think of as) an incredible series of recordings.
