Schoolkids Records (Retail & Label)

The great bandleader and saxophonist Charlie Singleton's classic take on the time-honored instrumental standard "Deep Purple," featuring some high register scatting from vocalist Hattie Green, first appeared on a 78 RPM single from the New York City based Atlas label in 1952. On the B-side was a Singleton instrumental original titled "Ocean Liner," an elegantly funky affair that features Singleton's wonderfully laid back saxophone against a sympathetic, buoyant rhythm section. Both tracks have been remastered for this release with the "lost" Ocean Liner finally made available in the digital domain.
