Red Norvo - Dance Of The Octopus album FLAC

While the first half of the program features all-star groups, the later tracks are prime examples of small-group swing with arranger Eddie Sauter's mellophone, Stew Pletcher's trumpet, and Herbie Haymer's tenor playing key roles.

Red Norvo (March 31, 1908 – April 6, 1999) was an American jazz vibraphonist, known as "Mr. Swing". He helped to establish the xylophone, marimba and later the vibraphone as viable jazz instruments. His major recordings include "Dance of the Octopus", "Bughouse", "Knockin' on Wood", "Congo Blues", and "Hole in the Wall". Red Norvo was born Kenneth Norville in Beardstown, Illinois. The story goes that he sold his pet pony to help pay for his first marimba.
