“C. V. Jump” / “I Surrender Dear” – The Charlie Venturo Sextette/Quintette (1945)

Sextette–Sunset; Los Angeles, March 1, 1945: Howard McGhee-t/Charlie Ventura-ts/Arnold Ross-p/Dave Barbour-g/Art Shapiro-b/Nick Fatool-d.

Quintette–Sunset; Los Angeles, March 1, 1945: Charlie Ventura-ts/Arnold Ross-p/Dave Barbour-g/Art Shapiro-b/Nick Fatool-d.

If my local classic rock radio station can have “double shots” in their rotation, why shouldn’t I?

West Coaster Howard McGhee on trumpet in “C. V. Jump. Just out of the “jazzbetweenthewars” years but a great example of post-war jazz to compare and contrast with other “betweenthewars” videos.

Love the Sunset spindle-hole label design.

Ventura/Venturo–Charlie went by both; primarily self-taught, he originally wanted to emulate the tenor saxophone sound of Chu Berry.
