CALLIOPE CAL 3010
SESSIONS, LIVE

TERRY GIBBS / BOBBIE LYNN - RED NORVO / TERRY GIBBS

The formula that Calliope had used thus far on their releases consisted of devoting each side of their LP releases to music from a single program with a combination of selections from the featured instrumental group plus selections from the featured vocalist or special guest appearing on the program.  If the producers had followed that formula side two of CAL 3010 would feature instrumental tracks by the Red Norvo Quintet plus vocal tracks by Ruth Price, but that was not the case and side two has three tracks from the Red Norvo program of April 21, 1958 plus two tracks from another Terry Gibbs program from September 22, 1958 (details below). 

Our coverage of STARS OF JAZZ in the media reproduced below is from The Knickerbocker News, Albany, New York, edition of August 9. 1958.

Ruth Price is backed by piano accompaniment plus rhythm on the two selections offered below.  Bobby Troup would often identify the pianist but in this case he did not.  Eddie Beal and Bobby Hammock were often called to fill in this chore and either might be on piano behind Ms. Price.
