Live 1965


Red Allen claimed to "only play from my feelings" and he allows us to feel his emotions in every performance, the mood moving from joy to sorrow, his vital artistry in happy concord with a compulsion to please. Those Long Island diners were pretty fortunate, weren't they? As Red was wont to say when a number ended… "Nice!" And so it is.

Henry Allen (trumpet & vocal), Sammy Price or Lannice 'Lannie' Scott* (piano), Clarence 'Benny' Moten (bass), George Reed (drums).
