Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Tate-a-Tate is an album by saxophonist Buddy Tate with trumpeter/flugelhornist Clark Terry which was recorded in 1960 and released on the Swingville label.

“This LP reissue of a Storyville set (which has not yet been put out on CD) matches the distinctive tenor Buddy Tate with trumpeter Clark Terry and a fine rhythm section (pianist Tommy Flanagan, bassist Larry Gales and drummer Art Taylor). The swinging unit performs three C.T. originals, Tate’s “#20 Ladbroke Square” and two standards (“Take the ‘A’ Train” and “All Too Soon”). The music is enjoyable and practically defines mainstream jazz of the era.” – Scott Yanow/AllMusic.
