Here Swings The Judge is Milt Hinton’s first LP as a band leader, and includes intimate, private recordings featuring Ben Webster on tenor saxophone before his departure to Europe in 1964. The remaining tracks consist of dynamic studio recordings produced by Harry Lim, and feature prominent players such as Jon Faddis and Budd Johnson. These sessions range from the swinging “Blue Skies,’ to the slow, serene blues of “Blues for the Judge.” Widely available on black vinyl beginning January 25th, preorder your copy HERE. Limited run of white color vinyl available only at independent record stores.
Topping the Billboard R&B charts in 1957, Bill Justis’ Raunchy is one of the most successful rock & roll instrumental tracks of all time. Having grown up in Memphis, Justis played an integral part in the development of rock music, working with artists on the legendary Sun Record Company, as well as recording music for himself. This collection of instrumentals pays homage to 1960’s era rock & roll scene of the south. Now the album has been remastered for its first vinyl pressing in nearly five decades. Available everywhere on black vinyl starting January 25th, preorder your copy HERE. Limited edition yellow color vinyl available only at independent record stores.
