Godfrey Hirsch: At Pete's Place, New Orleans

Coral CRL 757475

This was a thrift shop find ($1.99), in excellent shape, part of a haul of three Pete Fountain-related LPs. It is not on CD.

The cover is a tad deceptive: Pete Fountain appears (out of focus) in the background but does not play on the record. Pete's band, however, does, including Eddie Miller on tenor sax on several tracks. It has been digitized and posted on youtube.

Bass – Oliver Felix
Drums – Nick Fatool, Paul Edwards
Guitar – Paul Guma
Piano – Earl Vuiovich
Tenor Saxophone – Eddie Miller
Vibraphone – Godfrey Hirsch
