Eddie Miller is one of the rare tenor saxophonists who's equally acceptable
to fans of both vintage traditional jazz and swing-even of interest to some
bop enthusiasts. His solos with both the small and big bands of Bob Crosby
made him a household word in 30's jazz and he was present on even more West
Coast trad and swing dates than his Eastern counterpart Bud Freeman. In more
recent years he is known for is outings with clarinetist Pete Fountain.
Johnny Varro's background with Eddie Condon, Wild Bill Davidson, Phil Napoleon and Bobby Hackett led to steady work on the Jackie Gleason TV show. The three albums of this release celebrate his move to Southern California where he recorded for Magna-Graphic with Miller, Chuck Hedges and multi-brass legend Betty O'Hara. Delmark is proud to bring these albums to CD.
