Live 1989 hard-bop session has many good moments

(4 out of 5 stars)
"Recorded live at Kimball's East in Emeryville, CA on May 26-27, 1989, fluegelhornist Art Farmer and saxophonist Frank Morgan are both in good form on this live quintet session. There are rewarding solos by the principal performers and pianist Lou Levy. Eric Von Essen on bass and Albert "Tootie" Heath on drums provide solid rhythmic support, and get in a couple licks of their own. This release offers a well-balanced set of nine tracks from the concerts, delivering extended versions of Art's own "Farmer's Market", Sonny Clark's "Blue Minor" & "Cool Struttin'", Charlie Parker's "Donna Lee", and the standards "Star Eyes", "Embraceable You", "Don't Blame Me", and "I Remember You", each ranging from almost six minutes to over nine minutes in length."
