Album Notes
After Slide Hamptons original music was tragically lost, his groundbreaking octet went on a permanent hiatus. Thanks to Frank Basile, who transcribed all the arrangements by ear, and Charles Ruggiero, whose father was the drummer on many of the original octet recordings, these fantastic songs and arrangements have new life! Personnel - Nick Marchione, Bruce Harris - Trumpets •
Robert Edwards, James Burton III - Trombones • Sam Dillon - Tenor Saxophone/Clarinet • Frank Basile - Baritone Saxophone/Bass Clarinet • Mike Karn - Bass • Charles Ruggiero - Drums • Special Guest Slide Hampton - Trombone (Slide’s Blues & Mack The Knife)
