Featuring Bob Wilber Vol. 3




Laid-back live session from 1969 with four compatible and well-acquainted musicians. Ralph Sutton plays a stride-style piano, while Bob Wilber’s clarinet style is strongly influenced by Sidney Bechet. The repertoire consists of 9 standards (mostly from the 20’s & 30’s) plus two charming obscurities. The musical style is a blend of swing and mainstream jazz. The laid-back professionalism and close compatiblity of the musicians combine to make this a memorable live session which – thanks to the many subtilties in the music – sounds better and better the more times it’s heard.

Ralph Sutton – piano, Bob Wilber – soprano sax & clarinet, Al Hall – bass and Cliff Leeman – drums

Recorded February 15 & 17, 1969
