Bud Freeman - Classics In Jazz (1953)

Freeman is one of the top tenors of the era and was an inspiration for Lester Young.

These tracks were recorded in New York City in December, 1953, with Freeman being joined by Richard Cary, piano; George Barnes, guitar; Jack Lesberg, bass; Don Lamond, drums.

The musicianship and melodies are excellent on all tracks, however both "Three Little Words" and "Blues for Tenor" are smokin' hot sessions with George Barnes tearing it up on guitar and setting the mood for some swinging sax interplay by Freeman.
