Shelly Manne made a countless number of records from the 1940s into the '80s but is best-known as a good-humored bandleader who never hogged the spotlight. Originally a saxophonist, Manne switched to drums when he was 18 and started working almost immediately. He was with Joe Marsala's band (making his recording debut in 1941), played briefly in the big bands of Will Bradley, Raymond Scott, and Les Brown and was on drums for Coleman Hawkins's classic "The Man I Love" session of late 1943. Manne worked on and off with Stan Kenton during 1946-1952, also touring with Jazz at the Philharmonic (1948-1949), and gigging with Woody Herman (1949). After leaving Kenton, Manne moved to Los Angeles where he became the most in-demand of all jazz drummers.

SHELLY MANNE Empathy (with Bill Evans and Monty Budwig)

Album · 1962 · Cool Jazz
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Amilisom
It seems as though in the early to mid-60's Bill Evans was jumping around and exploring different trios. In this album he's playing with Shelly Manne and Monty Budwig.

Comparing this to other Bill Evans albums, I would say his playing here may be a little inferior than on others but still strong nonetheless. On the upside, Shelly Manne's drumming brings a creative edge to the album that isn't heard in other albums of Evans'. There is even a really cool point at the end of "With a Song in My Heart" where Evans and Manne play free improvisation. Manne has a way of placing fills that are intense and interesting but still have a laid-back feel to them.

On this album is the famous tune "Danny Boy". Looking forward to hearing how Evans would play it, I was disappointed that he doesn't actually solo over it but just plays the melody.

This album definitely has its 5-star moments. I would recommend it to any fans of Manne or Evans who want to hear them together.
