‘Embraceable You’

September 18

At a Jazz At The Philharmonic concert held at Carnegie Hall on this date in 1949, saxophonists Lester Young and Charlie Parker recorded a definitive version of Embraceable You. Also heard to great advantage are trumpeter Roy Eldridge, trombonist Tommy Turk, bassist Ray Brown, drummer Buddy Rich, and pianist Hank Jones, whose masterful accompaniment is worthy of listening just on its own.
