On May 26th, 1942, a teenaged tenor saxophonist from Texas took the featured solo on Lionel Hampton’s recording of a riff tune called Flying Home, and planted the seed from which not only a lot of bebop jazz but basically all R&B and rock sax playing would grow. Illinois Jacquet was among the first tenormen to graft elements of Lester Young’s forward- looking approach onto the template established by Coleman Hawkins, and his defining Flying Home solo pointed the way for thousands of aspiring bar-walkers, who learned it note-for-note.

Illinois Jacquet's 1956 album Swing's The Thing features Roy Eldridge, Jimmy Jones, Herb Ellis, Ray Brown and Jo Jones. Throughout his career, Jacquet, who was born of a Sioux mother and a Creole father, played marvelous swing music. He was famed for his imaginative improvisations and gave brilliant shows with the Count Basie orchestra and at a number of Jazz At The Philharmonic concerts. The man from Louisiana performed swing at every live appearance - no wonder, then, that Norman Granz chose this theme as the title of the present recording, which was set down in October 1956.
