Boyd Raeburn(ボイド・レイバーン)の楽歴については、昨日ご紹介したレコードの解説が一番役に立つと思います。
この解説で印象に残った箇所を下記に引用します。尚、瀬川昌久先生の解説を写真として添付致します。

「フィンケルは明らかに、当時のバップ運動を完全に理解して編曲に取り入れていたし、レイバーンの関心をバップとモダン・ジャズの方向に高めさせた。」

フィンケルとは最初のチーフアレンジャーであったEddie Finckelです。

「レイバーンバンドのバンドが今日までモダン・バンドとして優れた意義を與えられるすれば、それはハンディの作曲と編曲によるところが大きい。」

ハンディとは偉大な若き天才と呼ばれたGeorge Handyです。

今回は2人の編曲による演奏を4曲ずつ(計8曲)添付致しました。
