Shelly Manne & His Men Play Checkmate (1962)

Great Jazz versions of John Williams score for the TV show. Drummer Manne is accompanied by Conte Candoli-Trumpet, Richie Kamuca-Tenor Sax, Russ Freeman-Piano and Chuck Berghofter-Bass. Seven terrific tracks.

Highlights include: “Checkmate”, “The Isolated Pawn” and “The Black Night.”


About vintage45

I'm a big fan of vintage books,movies,TV shows and music. I encourage everyone to patronize your local used book/record store and pick up some of the good stuff. My posts are capsule reviews of some favorites that you may want to investigate. The albums posted aren't really reviews but items from my collection that are still available. I try and point out highlights of each one and let the music speak for itself. Thanks to all for checking out the blog.
