Cecil Young Progressive Quartet – Volume 2

Crazy beatnik jazz from the 50s, heavy on the scat, bongos & humour. They have another EP before this one but I don’t know of anything else this group did apart from these two EPs on King. I suspect they both featured smilarly excellent cover art & the longer tracks (“Who Parked The Car” & “Sweet Georgia Brown”) on this EP are actually pretty good. Recorded live so there’s a bit of background ambiance too.

  • Thank you! I’m an ex-pat Brit, didn’t hear Cecil Yount Quartet till just recently on a friend’s cassette. Definately Dizzy’s tribe.
