Full details

Tommy Whittle’s album was recorded in May 1959, at which time Jeffrey Kruger had interests in publishing, films and the Flamingo jazz club, but had yet to set up the Ember label. The album first appeared as New Horizons on Tempo (TAP 27). Tenor saxophonist Tommy Whittle was joined in his quintet by Harry Klein (baritone), Eddie Thompson (piano), Ken Sprang (bass) and Jackie Dougan (drums). A year later the album was brought in house and reissued as Easy Listening With Tommy Whittle And His Friends (Ember EMB 3305). Mastered from tape, two alternative takes first saw light of day on our expanded reissue of the Various Artists set Jazz At The Flamingo: Tenth Anniversary Tribute (Fantastic Voyage FVCD125) and reappear here as bonus tracks.
