Duke Jordan made his mark in jazz in the late 1940s as one of bebop innovator Charlie Parker's regular pianists, but he didn't blossom as a composer until the hard-bop era of the mid-'50s. FLIGHT TO JORDAN, his 1960 Blue Note debut, captures Jordan at a creative peak. The album features a slightly unusual combination of musicians: Reggie Workman, who would soon thereafter make his own mark in jazz's avant-garde sector; Stanley Turrentine, whose lusciously smooth, big-toned tenor would establish him as a leading light of the soul-jazz movement; and the fine, under-recorded Jamaican trumpeter Dizzy Reece. The latter's tart approach contrasts wonderfully to Turrentine's sweetly earthy sound. As a bonus, this remastered reissue includes two bonus tracks, one a trio take of the beloved standard "I Should Care."
