A legendary tenor and soprano saxophonist who took his place among the elite improvisers of jazz from the 1940's to the 1960's and then quit music. Lucky Thompson connected the swing era to the more cerebral and complex bebop style. His sophisticated, harmonically abstract approach to the tenor saxophone endeared him to the beboppers, but he was also a beautiful balladeer.

Uptown is proud to issue this set featuring the great Lucky Thompson in New York City in 1964 and 1965. Presented in fully restored audio, one hears Lucky in a late night club setting at the Half Note and in a concert atmosphere from the Little Theater in downtown Manhattan. Frequently based in Europe, these rare Stateside recordings display the brilliant musician on both the tenor and the soprano sax - surrounded by friends both in the audience and on stage.
