Tommy Whittle & Quartet - Why Not (CD)
Release Date: 09/11/12
Re-issue of an LP first released in 1977, and the first time it has appeared on CD.
This LP, produced by Lawrie Monk, was made in 1977, and released on the long-defunct Jam label. It features a rhythm section comprising three of the best sidemen around on the British scene, including drummer Martin Drew, who played with Oscar Peterson for the best part of 30 years. Working with a blend of standards and original tunes, the group exhibits an effortless ability to swing and groove through sols and ensemble improvisation, and it makes for very entertaining listening.
