    Full performer name: Lionel Hampton & The Golden Men Of Jazz.
    Personnel: Lionel Hampton (vibraphone); James Moody (vocals, tenor saxophone); Buddy Tate (tenor saxophone); Clark Terry (trumpet, flugelhorn); Harry "Sweets" Edison (trumpet); Al Grey (trombone); Hank Jones (piano); Milt Hinton (bass); Grady Tate (drums).

    Recorded live at the Blue Note, New York, New York from June 11-13, 1991. Includes liner notes by Donald Elfman.
    For a 1991 gig at the Blue Note in New York, vibraphonist Lionel Hampton headed a nonet full of classic veterans that were termed "the Golden Men of Jazz": trumpeters Clark Terry and Harry "Sweets" Edison, tenors James Moody and Buddy Tate, trombonist Al Grey, pianist Hank Jones, bassist Milt Hinton and drummer Grady Tate. Even with its many loose moments, these great players came up with some notable moments, including James Moody's humorous vocalizing on "Moody's Mood for Love" and particularly fine playing by Terry and Grey; Tate and Edison do show their age a bit, but are welcome participants in what must have been an occasion for celebration. ~ Scott Yanow
