Earl Bostic (April 25, 1913 – October 28, 1965) was an American jazz and rhythm and blues alto saxophonist.
Bostic's signature hit, "Flamingo" was recorded in 1951 and remains a favorite among followers of Carolina Beach Music in South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia.

 Bagatellen: Earl Bostic - Jazz Time (Le Jazz / Charly)
Beginning in the late 1940's and carrying through to the early 1960's (at the least), there was collection of sax players that, in hindsight, really straddled the worlds of R & B, rock 'n roll, and jazz.
Fantastic stuff that shows off Bostic's improvising chops, his infectious rhythmic feel, and his distinctive, piquant but huge, tone.
Of course, Bostic's earlier King material can be found in plentiful supplies on CD, of course, and at budget prices (usually), but Chronological Classics has recently issued Bostic's very first recordings in a package that finally begins to accord him some of the respect he deserves.

Although primarily known as a smoothly raucous R&B bandleader, Earl Bostic has jazz credentials that go deep, with records that reveal a technique as good as Charlie Parker's.
While Parker made history, and the honker "walked the bar," Bostic still deserves kudos for producing some of the most urbane early-'50s jump blues.
The outfits of Bostic, King Kolax, and Johnny Otis helped fill the gap, and this particular Bostic album, with its super-tight arrangements and incredible playing, proves the point.

While this wasn't the kind of hard-edged playing many assume is the only way to play jazz, Bostic's fluid, relaxed, expressive alto solos show that he could play jazz as well as anything else.
