Album Notes

Recording information: Radio Recorders, Hollywood, CA (1956/1957).

Photographer: Plas Johnson .

This LP (originally on the Tampa label) is subtitled "Rock 'N Roll Instrumentals," but is actually an R&B-flavored jazz album. Plas Johnson, whose tenor would be featured anonymously on many hit rock & roll and pop records, is joined by pianist Ray Johnson, bassist Duke Harris and drummer Sharky Hall for a variety of fairly basic melodies. Johnson plays quite melodically and with soul on such numbers as "Makin' Whoopee," "Blue Jean Shuffle" and "Last Call." The music on this LP is pleasing, if not all that essential. ~ Scott Yanow
