2009 release. Phil Seamen was arguably the greatest jazz drummer Europe has ever produced. He was up there alongside such contemporaries as Kenny Clarke and Philly-Joe Jones -- creative, and with a wonderful feel for time, a true personality with a recognizable sound and approach. A legend in his own lifetime, he died in 1972. Best-known by some in the rock world as the mentor of Ginger Baker. This album of highlights of his playing, with beautifully remastered recordings from between 1953 and 1972 also features Jack Parnell, Victor Feldman, Joe Harriott, Dizzy Reece, Stan Tracey, Jimmy Witherspoon, Kenny Graham, Harold McNair, Ronnie Scott, and Tony Coe. Includes a 24-page booklet.
