Originally released in November 1960, Ballads By Cobb, as its title suggests, is all slow ballads, putting the emphasis on the warm tone of the Texan tenor. Cobb spent most of the 60s playing back in Texas but he returned to the national scene in 1973 and during his final 15 years engaged in many exciting tenor battles, showing that there were few tougher than himself!

Despite multiple comebacks that resulted from spinal surgery in 1948 and a 1956 car accident that crushed his legs and limited him to crutches for the rest of his life, Arnett Cobb never lost any of his musical spirit as one of jazz's foremost stomping tenors.

 

Bringing the inspiring 7-song set home here is a superior supporting cast that includes Tommy Flanagan, George Duvivier and JC Heard. Originally released in November 1960, Ballads by Cobb, as its title suggests, is all slow ballads, putting the emphasis on the Texas tenor’s warm tone.


A Texas tenor player in the tradition of Illinois Jacquet, Arnett Cobb's accessible playing was between swing and early rhythm & blues. His stomping, robust style earned him the title "Wild Man of the Tenor Sax."


Cobb spent most of the 1960s playing back in his native Texas but he returned to the national scene in 1973 and during his final 15 years engaged in many exciting tenor battles, showing that there were few tougher Texas tenors than the legendary Arnett Cobb.


Here, the Wild Man takes a smoother, more emotional approach. The album was recorded Nov. 1, 1960 by Rudy Van Gelder at his studio in Englewood Cliffs, N.J.. It was produced by Esmond Edwards.
