Junior Mance: Junior (Verve By Request Series) LP

Junior Mance

Verve, 1959

Pianist Junior Mance, a veteran of albums and dates with Dinah Washington and Cannonball Adderley, was offered his own recording date by Norman Granz during a session with Dizzy Gillespie. The result is this 1959 debut album, a bluesy and swinging date with Gillespie's drummer Lex Humphries and bassist Ray Brown. Highlights include the original “Jubilation” and Cole Porter's “Love For Sale.”
