THIS IS KENNY’S ONLY SINGLE-HORN QUARTET SESSION. HE PROBABLY COULD HAVE MADE
A DOZEN OF THEM, BUT HE WAS A GIVER AND FAVORED THE TWO HORN CONVERSATIONS
OF A QUINTET MOST FREQUENTLY. THIS RECORD, MUCH LIKE ALL OF KENNY’S STUFF, IS ALL
ABOUT A BALANCED APPROACH TO MATERIAL, AND ASSURANCE. HE HITS THE RIGHT NOTES
QUITE OFTEN, AND HIS COMPOSITIONS DON’T SUFFER ONE BIT SIDE BY SIDE TO THE OTHER
CLASSICS HERE ––––THIS IS A VERY BEAUTIFUL RECORDING BY ONE OF THE MOST UNDERATED
TRUMPET PLAYERS IN THE HISTORY OF JAZZ. ON THIS WONDERFUL ALBUM, KENNY LEADS A
SAX-FREE QUARTET (THE ONLY TIME HE WOULD BE SANS A PARTNER ON SAX) AND PROVES
THAT HE IS MORE THAN CAPABLE OF SHOULDERING THE LOAD . . . THIS ORIGINAL 1959 FIRST
MONO DEEP GROOVE PRESSING APPEARS IN ASTOUNDING CONDITION - - - SHINY PLAYING
SURFACE WITH NO MARKS OR SCRATCHES, OBVIOUSLY LISTENED TO IT PERHAPS ONCE OR
TWICE. THE PURPLE LABELS ARE CLEAN, “RVG” STAMPED IN THE DEAD WAX. THE COVER HAS
TINY PAPER WEAR TO BOTTOM OF SPINE AND “PREVIEW COPY” STAMPED ON THE BACK SIDE.
THIS CORNERSTONE OF JAZZ ALBUMS HAS BEEN REISSUED SEVERAL TIMES ON VINYL AND CD
BUT THIS IS THE REAL DEAL AND NEXT TO IMPOSSIBLE TO GET A BETTER ONE . . .
