Editorial Reviews

Two CDs. Allen Eager was a charismatic figure, exuding a level of sophistication far beyond his years: quintessentially cool with impeccable taste. By the time he was 18 years old, Allen Eager was not only a player to be reckoned with but also catching the ears of his peers on The Street. In quick succession, Eager impressed Ben Webster and Coleman Hawkins but the ultimate seal of approval came via his idol Lester Young. Pres claimed that of all "The Gray Boys" - his term for a legion of young white acolytes that included Stan Getz, Zoot Sims and many others - it was most definitely Eager who impressed him the most: This double CD follows Allan Eager's amazing career in the world of Bop. Not only does it touch on recordings he made under his own leadership but also exciting collaborations with Buddy Rich, Charlie Parker, Stan Getz, Red Rodney, Coleman Hawkins, Tadd Dameron, Fats Navarro, Tony Fruscella, Gerry Mulligan, Kenny Clarke etc. Giant Steps. 2007.
