Red Michell / Herb Ellis

One is from New York, the other from Texas. A rhythmist and accompanist, Red Mitchell was principal doublebassist in the MGM Orchestra and one of the most appreciated collaborators of Gerry Mulligan, Hampton Hawes, Dizzy Gillespie, Toots Thielemans and Ornette Coleman. As for Herb Ellis, his career look off when he was chosen to replace Bamey Kessel in the Oscar Peterson Trio. Since then, he has accompanied Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Lionel Hampton, Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd. Red Mitchell possesses an ample and "wooden" sound, a considerable texture and phrasing which is reminiscent of vocal inflexions; Herb Ellis' style is replete with hillbilly and blues accents rendered with rare ease and feeling.

Together, Red Michell and Herb Ellis strike very sensitive chords.
