For many, Arnett Cobb
is the prototypical "Texas Tenor." His robust tone and aggressive playing were highlighted both with Lionel Hampton
's band and later on his own recordings. This 20-track set chronicles all of Cobb
's work under his own name, as well as sides with Milt Buckner
and Herbie Fields
with the Hamptone All Stars. Highlights include the bluesy "Down Home," "Still Flyin'," "Running With Ray," and "Cobb's Idea."
