Lionel hampton and his orchestra - live recording from apollo hall concert 1954 - Lionel Hampton - Flying Home (1957) - YouTube


Hampton and his orchestra (a seasoned group of 10 jazz veterans) open their set with an untitled boogaloo, underscored by the funky rhythm playing of Hamp's long-time guitarist Bill Mackel, who had been with the charismatic bandleader since 1944. Organ pioneer Milt Buckner is next featured on a Latin-flavored romp before the ensemble settles into a relaxed, swinging rendition of the 1930 Tin Pan Alley ditty "On the Sunny Side of the Street." Buckner's syncopated organ work here fuels the proceedings while the bandleader joins in on vocals midway through the piece and the band incorporates Hamp's famous riff from his 1946 hit "Hey! Ba-Ba-Re-Bop" into the fabric of this engaging number. Buckner then stretches out considerably on a spirited reprise of "On the Sunny Side of the Street."
