Burrell has played on about 200 albums with such leaders as John Coltrane, Stan Getz, Jimmy Smith, Billy Holiday, Hubert Laws, Yusef Lateef, and many others.

Herb Ellis became famous playing with the Oscar Peterson Trio during 1953-1958. had a few opportunities to lead his own dates for Verve. After leaving Peterson, Ellis toured a bit with Ella Fitzgerald; became a studio musician on the West Coast;

Bennett always been enthusiastic and generous in his association with projects undertaken by jazz players. Bennett's voice is a lyric baritone with a distinctively husky edge. An admirer of classic jazz, he claims to have modeled his phrasing on the playing of Art Tatum, and his relaxed delivery on that of the great Mildred Bailey.

Jimmy Blanton Birth Date Salute
1918 - 1942
Bassist. In his short life, Jimmy Blanton transformed the role of the double bass in jazz, proving that this big, cumbersome instrument could have the same lightness and flexibility as a trumpet or saxophone. Before he succumbed to TB, he made dozens of recordings with Duke Ellington that not only showed off the bass as a solo instrument, but altered its role in the rhythm section to playing flexible basslines that blended with Sonny Greer's drums and Ellington's impressionistic piano.
