25 October 2010

Rhino's new 180gr 50th Anniversary edition of an all-time Atlantic Records classic! Vibraphonist Milt Jackson, or 'Bags' as he was long called, was at the top of his field for over 50 years. Having worked as a sideman for the likes of Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker and Thelonious Monk until he started recording as a leader in the '50s, he was also an indispensable part of the Modern Jazz Quartet's sound. Bean Bags is a collaboration with the great tenor saxophonist Coleman Hawkins. Featuring a stellar (pianist Tommy Flanagan, guitarist Kenny Burrell, bassist Eddie Jones, and drummer Connie Kay), Bean Bags romps through "Stuffy," "Get Happy," a pair of Jackson originals, and two fine ballads. TRACKLISTING: SIDE A: 1. Close Your Eyes 2. Stuffy 3. Don't Take Your Love From Me SIDE B: 1. Get Happy 2. Sandra's Blues 3. Indian Blues
