CD Details

  • Released: June 28, 2011
  • Label: Universal Japan

Product Description:

Jazztet.
Art Farmer/Benny Golson Jazztet: Art Farmer (trumpet); Benny Golson (tenor saxophone); Curtis Fuller (trombone); McCoy Tyner (piano); Addison Farmer (bass); Lex Humphries (drums).
Recorded in Chicago, Illinois on February 6, 9 & 10, 1960. Originally released on Argo (664). Includes liner notes by Scott Yanow.
Although this CD has the same program as the original LP, it gets the highest rating because it is a hard bop classic. Not only does it include superior solos from trumpeter Art Farmer, trombonist Curtis Fuller, tenor saxophonist Benny Golson, and pianist McCoy Tyner (who was making his recording debut) along with fine backup from bassist Addison Farmer and drummer Lex Humphries, but it features the writing of Golson. Highlights include the original version of "Killer Joe" along with early renditions of "I Remember Clifford" and "Blues March." This was Fuller and Tyner's only recording with the original Jazztet, and all ten selections (which also include "Serenata," "It Ain't Necessarily So," "It's All Right With Me," and "Easy Living") are quite memorable. ~ Scott Yanow
