True to its title, THE LIONEL HAMPTON STORY box set covers the full career of one of jazz's most important pioneers. As a sideman, leader, drummer, pianist, vocalist, and vibraphonist, Hampton played with exuberant skill and enthusiasm throughout an astounding chunk of the 20th century (from the 1920s through the late 1990s), making music with everyone from Louis Armstrong and Benny Goodman to Art Tatum and Charles Mingus.
Hampton was the first to improvise extensively on the vibraphone, and it was on this instrument that he made his most significant contributions to the form. There is plenty of evidence of his dynamic mallet style and unerring sense of swing across the 92 recordings on this four-disc set, which features all of Hamp's best-known tunes (such as "Flying Home" and "Hamp's Boogie Woogie"), and a veritable who's who of jazz musicians on the personnel list. A lengthy deluxe booklet full of discography info and rare photographs makes the box a definitive summation of the work of this legendary figure.
