HYENA and record producer Joel Dorn are back with the latest discovery of buried treasure from their ongoing and acclaimed archive series. This time the goods are from the legendary jazz vocalist Joe Williams. Released for the first time ever, Havin’ A Good Time, is a “live” concert recording of Joe Williams in 1962 in a rare performance with tenor saxophonist Ben Webster. It was a snowy winter night at a small club in Providence, Rhode Island when Joe Williams, having recently departed his regular gig with the Count Basie Big Band, hit the stage with a very special guest in tow. Together with Joe’s regular quartet, featuring Junior Mance on piano, Bob Cranshaw on bass and Mickey Roker on drums, they proceeded to warm the audience’s soul with over 60 minutes of pure jazz magic. The group ran through a set that included “Kansas City Blues,” “Honeysuckle Rose” and “Ain’t Miss Behavin’” with Ben Webster’s big, gorgeous tenor saxophone making each number sparkle like a diamond. The release of this previously unheard club recording is a rare find and yet another jewel to add to American jazz music’s illustrious history. Jazz folks everywhere are ecstatic about this one of a kind document.
