Get "Gone" Before It's Gone
Michael B. Richman | Portland, Maine USA | 09/05/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Benny Golson's albums from the late 50s are all jazz classics. Obviously, a lot of people are not aware of this fact as I am now writing a first time review for a fourth Golson CD! "Gone With Golson," made for the Prestige label in 1959, finds Benny in top form with trombonist Curtis Fuller, shortly less than a year before the two would join Art Farmer to become the great Jazztet group. Golson, the author of the now standards "Blues March" and "I Remember Clifford," contributes three tunes on this occasion, "Soul Me," "Blues After Dark" and "Jam For Bobbie." Pianist Ray Bryant (who is joined in the rhythm section by brother Tommy on bass and Al Harewood on drums) penned the appropriately titled "Staccato Swing," and the album's remaining track is a sublime version of the standard "Autumn Leaves." The CD adds one track not issued on the original vinyl -- Fuller's "A Bit of Heaven." Finally, it should be noted that "Gone With Golson" is a limited edition CD, so interested parties should get it before it's gone."
Absolutly beautiful Jazz from the fifties
Jazzcat | Genoa, Italy Italy | 10/18/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This limited edition OJC is another really splendid Golson album. By the way it is really an hard thing to do finding a fifties jazz album that doesn't work. "Gone with Golson" make justice of Benny Golson's genius. The balance between Golson's delicate charts and his aggressive tenor playing is quite unique. Here we see the collaboration between Benny and Curtis Fuller a highly interesting trombone player that is often forgotten. The sound that this front line deliver is the sound of a perfect fifties jazz solo duo. Modern and elegant. The Bryant rhythmn team (piano and double bass) deliver a great comping. Tis combo swings effortlessy. The tune list is balanced. A standard, some originals and a couple of blues tunes (Blues after dark and Jam for Bobbie). A truly fantastic tune it is the opener "Staccato swing" from Ray Bryant's pen. It's a kind of modal tune in its beginning which anticipate the modal Jazz which began to appear just that year with Miles Davis "Kind of Blue". The closing tune is a medium tempo number from Curtis Fuller which sports a contrapuctual line. This tune was not comprehend in the original issue of the album but it's a very nice addiction. I suggest to every Jazz enthusiast to buy this record without any esitation. It is a great gem to add to your collection."

"In 1959 Benny Golson made 3 recordings for Prestige; this is the first one recorded (second one issued). All 3 albums are uniformally excellent. Curtis Fuller is on trombone, and his gruff sound is a nice contrast to Golson's smooth melodic tenor sound. The rhythm section [Ray Bryant (p) brother Tommy Bryant (b) and Al Harewood (d)] is solid and offers excellent support. Ray's blues feeling is especially noticeable. Hard bop at its best."
