Muggsy Spanier: Rare & Unissued Masters 1941-1952
Title: Rare & Unissued Masters 1941-1952
Label: GHB Jazz Foundation
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

CD reissue. Francis Joseph Spanier was better known as "Muggsy,' established his own style that distinguished his playing from that of other cornet players. When he is leading a group, one can immediately recognize who is on the cornet. The notes for this CD set, along with the book Muggsy Spanier: The Lonesome Road (1995) by Bert Whyatt, give a fairly detailed analysis of his style. Suffice to say here he is a hot player, punching out his notes in flurries and driving the band. His tone is fat and firm and with just a slight vibrato at the end of each phrase.
