/Benny Golson Jazztet.
Art Farmer/Benny Golson Jazztet: Art Farmer (flugelhorn); Benny Golson (tenor saxophone); Curtis Fuller (trombone); Mickey Tucker (piano); Ray Drummond (bass); Marvin "Smitty" Smith (drums).
Recorded live at Sweet Basil, New York, New York on February 21 & 22, 1986. Includes liner notes by Stanley Crouch.
Digitally remastered by Phil De Lancie (1995, Fantasy Studios, Berkeley, California).
Recorded at the same sessions as Real Time, this set features a reunion by the Jazztet, a classic sextet that originally broke up in 1963 due to lack of work. Twenty-three years later, flugelhornist Art Farmer and trombonist Curtis Fuller are heard playing in their unchanged styles while tenor-saxophonist Benny Golson (who had evolved from a Don Byas-type approach to a sound influenced by Archie Shepp) is in fine form. With pianist Mickey Tucker, bassist Ray Drummond and drummer Marvin "Smitty" Smith completing the group, the band plays four lesser-known Golson compositions, Farmer's "Write Soon" and the standard "Speak Low." Timeless hard bop music. ~ Scott Yanow
