Great Hard Bop Quintet Session!

"This features Thad Jones on the flugelhorn with Pepper Adams, one of the great baritone sax players, making a really potent combination for this session. The rhythm section consists of Duke Pearson on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and the drummer Mel Lewis (maybe the start of their long association).The harmony created by the two horns is very appealing as well as their solo work. Most of the tunes are in a medium tempo groove which includes a very upbeat arrangement of "Wives And Lovers". The set concludes with a very funky version, including tack piano, of "Yes Sir, That's My Baby"......the first and last minute being a rather satirical approach to the music style of the twenties.This cd will appeal to those who like a tightly knit group that explores the tonal possibilities existing with the combination of flugelhorn and baritone sax, hard bop fans, or fans of these particular musicians. Really good medium tempo session that's good listening!"
