Junior Mance

Junior Mance is well-known for his soulful bluesy style, but he is also expert at playing bop standards. He started playing professionally when he was ten. Mance worked with Gene Ammons in Chicago during 1947-1949, played with Lester Young (1950), and was with the Ammons-Sonny Stitt group until he was drafted. He was the house pianist at Chicago's Bee Hive (1953-1954), worked as Dinah Washington's accompanist (1954-1955), was in the first Cannonball Adderley Quintet (1956-1957), and then spent two years touring with Dizzy Gillespie (1958-1960). After a few months with the Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis/Johnny Griffin group, Mance formed his own trio and has mostly been a leader ever since. He has led sessions for Verve, Jazzland, Riverside, Capitol, Atlantic, Milestone, Polydor, Inner City, JSP, Nilva, Sackville, and Bee Hive, among other labels. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

Junior Mance - the single petal of a Rose
Saw Junior Mance at the Japanese hotel on Park Avenue South and a bar on West 10th Street. Later told a date to meet me there but it no longer existed.

??? Did he do an album of jazz harpsicord?? ?
Used to catch him in Chicago saloons and bars. He was kind enough to converse about Teddy and Fatha and some tough joints on the road. I saw him here in Denver and I tried to pay him a bet I owed him from the sixties.
Love his slow and soulful blues.
used to listen to him play often at nickerbocker saloon in nyc 1970-90 still enjoy his music
