Jo Jones

“In the entire history of jazz there has never been a team to compare with Milt Buckner and Jo Jones. Never has music so rich and so complex been produced by just two musicians.” Hugues PANASSIÉ, 1971 This set contains every “Buck & Jo” record session produced by Louis and Hugues Panassié from 1971 to 1974, in other words, music by a fantastic drummer, Jo Jones, together with organist Milt Buckner, also a jazz legend, and the man who played a special role in making the Hammond organ so popular, beginning in the early Fifties. Listen to the entente between the two musicians right from the very first note: this 4CD set, compiled and restored by Laurent Verdeaux, delivers some of the finest and most intense moments in Swing.
