On 1964's FANTABULOUS, reedist, composer, and arranger Oliver Nelson really hits his stride. His writing in particular (seven of the album's nine songs are his) is sharp, and displays the immediately accessible, swinging charm that marks his best work. The blues-imbued "Hobo Flats" and the bop workout "Three Plus One" are among the highlights, and there is some fine soloing from Phil Woods on alto saxophone and clarinet and Nelson on tenor sax. While not as necessary as his breakthrough, THE BLUES AND THE ABSTRACT TRUTH, FANTABULOUS is a fine example of Nelson's early career work.
