Uncle Paul's Jazz Closet
Theme: 

Funk Dumpling: Perry Robinson & Henry Grimes






Funk Dumpling is Perry Robinson's first album on Savoy Jazz. It was recorded Feb. 10,1962. As you can see at left, Paul was paid $53.50 for the recording and it looks like they did the whole thing in 3 1/2 hours. Then he went on to play at Birdland with Bill Evans the same evening at 8:45!



The recordings of the show came out as dead air... so I recreated the show on my home computer.
