Art Farmer helped to popularize the flugelhorn in post-bop jazz, but on 1958's PORTRAIT OF ART FARMER he plays trumpet on all nine tracks. Farmer's breathy horn sound is supported here by sensitive and tight performances from pianist Hank Jones, bassist (and twin brother) Addison Farmer, and drummer Roy Haynes. Together they play gently swinging renditions of standards "The Very Thought of You," "Stablemates," and others.
The set also features three clever tunes penned by Farmer himself, including the up-tempo "And Now," which may be the album's highlight. In addition to Farmer's own inspired solo, this selection features the nimble piano work of Jones, and the crisp, meticulous drumming of Haynes. The last tune, a spirited take on Hammerstein & Kern's "Folks Who Live on the Hill," did not appear on the original LP, but was added to this Original Jazz Classics CD reissue.
