Arnett Cobb
Cobb and His Mob in Concert (featuring Dinah Washington)

This fine session dating from 1952 finds the "Wild Man of the Tenor Saxophone" in a particularly exuberant mood. Cobb and his band romp through seven tunes including those most associated with Cobb, "Go Red Go", "Smooth Sailin'" and others. Then, Dinah Washington comes out for her set and sings a handful of her tunes ("Only a Moment Ago", "Make Believe Dreams") before spying trumpeter Cootie Williams in the audience and inviting him up for a "run-for-cover" jam on "I Got It Bad". A rare slice of jazz history, restored to the catalog after an absence of more than two decades.
