Art Farmer brought great sophistication and refinement to the trumpet, and later to the flugelhorn--the latter eventually became his horn of choice. On this 1956 recording date, Farmer is joined by many of the original "young lions" of the post bebop era, including the always-swinging tenor saxophonist Hank Mobley. The trumpeter's quintet performs a set of mostly originals written by Mobley, Farmer, and pianist Kenny Drew, with only one standard heard here--the lovely (and often overlooked) Schwartz-Dietz piece "By Myself."
Each tune is a gem, but the best is left for last on FARMER'S MARKET. The vigorous "Wailin' with Hank" features a burning solo by Farmer, who trades in his characteristically smooth lyricism for a harder-edged, punchy sound (a la Clifford Brown). Elvin Jones's drum solo on this selection adds even more fire to the track. Overall, FARMER'S MARKET is made up of elegant performances that straddle the boundaries between the so-called "hot" and "cool" schools of jazz. It is this ability to defy strict categorization that makes this album such a compelling listen.
