Butch Miles Salutes Chick Webb

This was one of my early albums for Famous Door.  Butch Miles is a totally amazing drummer with so many wonderful influences.  Chick Webbs band was one of the most swinging bands happening and they would challenge any band in the famous Savoy ballroom.  Eddie Barefield on tenor who was in Chick’s band brought in these arrangements. The great Milt Hinton on bass and Norris Turney who was the lead alto with Ellington and John Bunch.  A very different album for sure!  Glenn
