Some Wonderful Jazz

"Tony Scott was a true original. On recordings, I have heard him play swing, bop, plus some pioneering new age. He was one of the real pioneers of jazz clarinet. He is also playing baritone sax here,with the aid of Bill Evans, Paul Motian, Jimmy Knepper, and others. This is a very swinging post-bop two CD set. He recorded this before he left the country for some productive jamming and recording around the world. He died only a few months ago, in Italy I believe. His stuff isn't that easy to find, although Amazon.com has a nice collection. If you're a fan of, or would like to hear some Charlie Parker influenced clarinet played with a lot of freedom, plus some beautiful solos by the above mentioned soloists plus a few others, this is a very good place to listen."
Mr. Scott & Mr. Evans!

"Wonderful interplay between two masters who clearly respect each other. Both were in top form when this was made! Again, why is Tony Scott so little known?"
