Fingerprints Music

The legendary West Indian saxophonist Wilton Gaynair was a prominent figure in the "classic period" of British post-bop activity in the late 50s and early 60s. 'Bogey' only made three albums as a leader before his premature death in 1995. First, there was the classic "Blue Bogey", then the 1982 set "Alpharian" and now, available for the first time, here is the follow up to "Blue Bogey." This set was recorded after midnight on a hot June night in 1960 in London. The rhythm section on the date was more or less the Tempo label's house band and features Gaynair (tenor sax) with Ellsworth 'Shake' Keane (trumpet, flugelhorn), Terry Shannon (piano), Jeff Clyne (bass) and Bill Eyden (drums).
