Hines, Earl - Once Upon A Time.Vendor: Impuls
RARE/2HAND VINYL LP ON IMPULSE 1966.
Impulse A-9108 made in USA in gatefold cover with original inner sleeve. Vinyl NM. Cover NM.
For reasons that are unclear, this LP reissue of an Impulse set drops one of the seven songs ("Black and Tan Fantasy") from the program, reducing the playing time down to a mere 29 minutes. But if one finds this LP at a budget price, it is worth picking up, for the great pianist Earl Hines is featured on three selections with many of the members of the Duke Ellington Orchestra (including on the exciting "Once Upon a Time" and "Cotton Tail"), in a quartet featuring Jimmy Hamilton and with a nonet that also includes clarinetist Pee Wee Russell along with some Ellingtonians. Great music, lousy packaging. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earl_Hines
