And All Those Cats (Sahib Shihab, 1964-70)

The sessions collected on this italian reprint  under the nominal leadership of baritonist and flutist Sahib Shihab, come from spin-offs of the Clarke-Boland Big Band. Fun, upbeat music, faultlessy executed by expatriates Shihab, Kenny Clarke, Benny Bailey, Jimmy Woode, plus pianist Boland and some top-notch European soloists such as trombonist Åke Persson.

  1. Greetings and congratulations on the fledgeling blog.
    And thanks for the Shihab: there are a few numbers on this collection I don't think I've heard.

  2. Thank you so much for this offering :)

  3. hi, i already have this superb recording. iv'e been hooked on stoned ghosts for a while now. can someone help, i'd like to know who the bongo player is on this recording. that's partly why i stopped by. all the best with spreading the word.

  4. Hi Deltaman, the bongo player should be Fats Sadi, the Clarke-Boland vibist.
