Nice one WSR :).

It's actually not from 1942, but from the first Jazz At The Philharmonic concert from July 2, 1944.

Jacquet plays the second tenor solo starting at 3:27 and kills them all (at age 21)! :mrgreen:

- Personel:
Tenor Saxophone – Jack McVea (first tenor solo), Illinois Jacquet (second tenor solo at 3:27)
Trombone – J.J. Johnson
Guitar – Les Paul
Piano – Nat King Cole
Bass – Johnny Miller
Drums – Lee Young (the brother of Lester)

That rhythm section is swinging it's *** off!!

Good stuff, thanks for posting.
It's the Nat King Cole trio of the early 40's, before Nat choose to go more commercial (singing).

You can clearly here where Oscar Peterson got his inspiration from (his quartet would actually play at lots of the JATP concerts following this one).

Oh man, my Dad still has that vinyl and I played the heck out of it as a kid until he got a cassette machine and we taped it to save the record(!)

I didn't realise Jazz wasn't supposed to be fun until many years later!
