Honkin the Boogie / Various
After Lionel Hampton's unprecedented success with "Flying Home" and it's raucous sax solo by Illinois Jacquet, saxophone players became the leading soloists in bands and leaders in their own right. These twenty tracks feature some of the wildest players in the then new genre of 'Honkin' and Screamin' which took America by storm and led indirectly to the explosion of Rock 'n' Roll in the Fifties.
