CD Reviews

Classic Album
Larkenfield | 09/01/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Not a detailed review, I know. Just wanted to say that it's beautifully re-mastered and exactly what I was in the mood for today. Sweet, sweet, sweet."
Brilliant Playing and Hypnotic Music
William E Donoghue | Healdsburg CA USA | 10/06/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It was the year or so of giants: Miles' Kind of Blue, Mingus' Ah Um and Dynasty, Brubeck's Time Out, Trane's My Favorite Things, and Oliver Nelson's The Blues and The Abstract Truth.
I had the privilege of seeing Nelson's Quintet live at Lafayette College in Easton PA this year. Nelson was playing his classic Coltrane concept & Hodges singing tone saxophone, Eric Dolphy's flute and bass clarinet, the underrated and soon lost Richard Williams on trumpet, Richard Wyands on piano, the brillian George Duvivier and Mr. Snap Crackle: Roy Haynes.
Find all of the Prestige/New Jazz Oliver Nelson group CDs; they all have something special to offer, mostly from Nelson but much from his sidemen.
By the way this album has little to do with More Blues and the Abstract Truth which a much more traditional but equally-satisfying set."
