HAMPTON, Lionel.
Hamp's Boogie-Woogie/New Central Avenue Breakdown - signed 78 RPM "single".
Decca Records, 1949. Original 10-inch 78 RPM disc. Surface a little dull and with a few pronounced scuffs, the signature good and clear, later sleeve. Original 1949 Decca 78 RPM record - 24607-A/B - which pairs "Hamp's Boogie Woogie" and "New Central Avenue Breakdown", boldly inscribed in white ink on the A-side label "To Francis Lionel Hampton". "Hamp's Boogie Woogie" is a 1944 instrumental written by Milt Buckner and Lionel Hampton and performed by Lionel Hampton and His Orchestra. The song, featuring Earl Bostic on alto sax, hit number one on the Billboard Harlem Hit Parade staying there for six weeks. One of the true greats, Hampton started out playing drums with the Chicago Defender Newsboys Band in the early 20s, was a member of Benny Goodman's great Trio and Quartet, the first racially integrated group, before leading his own orchestra in the 40s and 50s. Highly attractive and unusual piece. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
