5.0 out of 5 stars Don Redman and His Orchestra 1933-1936 February 16, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This CD contains a rainbow of Redman's great work and features some wonderful vocals by Harlan Lattimore, Chick Bullock and Redman, himself.
The touching "Mommy, I Don't Want To Go To Bed" starts things off and includes Redman's classic singing style--half sung and half spoken.
The medley of "Shuffle Your Feet/Bandanna Babies" features Lattimore, as does many other including "It's All Your Fault," "Lazy Bones," "You Told Me But Half The Story" and "Lonely Cabin."
These masterpieces show why Harlan Lattimore was considered by his peers one of the finest singers of his day.
Chich Bullock had a fine voice, as well, and his style and class are represented perfectly on "Tired Of It All."
To top things off, Redman sings--or, more accurately half sings and half talks--his way through "A Little Bit Later On." It's wonderful and, if you listen closely to the words, you might hesitate a bit before threatening your lover after a spat!
And, of course, Redman's version of "Sophisticated Lady" simply encases that fifth star on this CD...JB

Format:Audio CD
For collectors of oldies hit singles transformed into mp.3 format it is indeed frustrating to see an artist represented in several otherwise excellent CDs, but not one among them offering all their hits in one volume - especially when they only had a relatively small number. Such is the case with Jazz giant Donald Matthew Redman, born in Piedmont, West Virginia on July 29, 1900.

Accomplished on just about every instrument imaginable by the time he was a teenager, he came by his love of music honestly, as his mother did some singing and his dad was a local music teacher. He furthered his education through studies at Storer's College in Harper's Ferry, West Virginia and then the Boston Conservatory of Music. After his professional debut in New York with Billy Page's Broadway Syncopators in the early 1920s, he joined the Fletcher Henderson orchestra where, for the most part early on, he played clarinet or saxophone.

However, it wasn't too long before Henderson handed over the arranger task to Redman and it is now generally accepted by historians that he was the one who turned them into becoming the first true "swing band" of that era with his complex arrangement. This involved having the melody constantly shift around various complete sections (clarinet, brass, saxophone) and even soloists, thereby introducing what would become later known as "the battle of the bands" into similar competitions within a single orchestra. This technique can be heard in such Henderson hits as Sugar Foot Stomp, Carolina Stomp and Dinah, where Louis Armstrong can be heard on cornet. .
