AllMusic Review by

This two-fer from Collectables features a pair of out-of-print Slide Hampton LPs: Jazz With a Twist and Explosion! The Sound of Slide Hampton, both originally issued on Atlantic in 1961 and 1962. Highlights among the 18 tracks include "Mack the Knife," "Red Top," and "Slide's Blues," which provide a perfect combination of bop and mainstream jazz.
