Somehow this 1961 Reprise title seems to have escaped the audiophile must-have list. It's a true hidden classic and an incredibly warm recording. The small combo setting really allows these two heavyweights to shine. The mood is laid-back and down-home. Accompanying musicians include trumpeter Gerald Wilson, pianist Ernie Freeman, bassist Ralph Hamilton and drummer Jim Miller. Roots was recorded at the often underrated or forgotten Radio Recorders in Hollywood, California. The studio, built in 1929, was one of the truly great - and great-sounding - studios of its day with an unbelievable discography of classics to its name. 200 gram vinyl.

I'd Rather Drink Muddy Water

I'm Gonna Move To The Outskirts Of Town

Key To the Highway

Did You Ever

Confessin' the Blues

Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out

Your Red Wagon

Rain Is Such a Lonesome Sound

Cherry Red

It's A Low Down Dirty Shame

Just a Dream
