Another jazz gem from the 50's, in super sound
I remember sitting in my music room and making some voice notes on my cell phone. For the sake of accuracy, here are those notes: "Sound is exceptionally rich in detail including low level for whole ensemble. "Mono not an issue with DXD sound as good as this. JC is in very fine middle Coltrane form, not yet sheets of sound, but jagged and unpredictable. Already anguished but still melodic. His long runs are easy on the ears at this point. Harden is a fine tpt player, how did I ever miss him? [maybe because he disappeared after 1960?] Tommy Flanagan is a quiet master and great team player as always. Battery [bass + drums] in excellent form. A gem from a Golden Age.
