New Jazz was a series undertaken by Prestige Records to showcase new and underappreciated artists who were recording original and sometimes daring sounds. Some of the new artists featured on the 15-track collection that spans the years 1959-1964 are Oliver Nelson, Eric Dolphy, Lem Winchester, and Gigi Gryce. There are also early appearances (as sidemen) by such future innovators as John Coltrane, Larry Young, and Booker Little. The disc features classic tracks from landmark records like Yusef Lateef's "Cry!-Tender" from 1959's Cry!/Tender, Eric Dolphy's "Far Cry" from 1960's Far Cry, and Gigi Gryce's "The Rat Race Blues" from 1960's The Rat Race Blues. Also of note is "Da Duh Dah," a strong hard bop track by the mighty R&B saxman King Curtis from his jazz debut, The New Scene of King Curtis, from 1960. The entire disc is strong and exciting and very well-compiled. Highly recommended for all who are fans of uncompromising and thrilling hard bop. ~ Tim Sendra
