Back To Your "Roots"
Michael B. Richman | Portland, Maine USA | 12/08/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)
"The Prestige All-Stars' "Roots" is another one of my Oldies/Collectables website finds. It features two classic 1957 jam sessions, with trumpeter Idrees Sulieman and bassist Doug Watkins the commom links. The disc leads off with the 27 minute long title track, recorded on December 6th, with all the musicians -- Sulieman, Watkins, Pepper Adams, Bill Evans, Louis Hayes and little known trombonist Frank Rehak -- getting tons of room to stretch out. The other two numbers, from October 25th and featuring Cecil Payne, Jimmy Cleveland, Tommy Flanagan and Elvin Jones joining Sulieman and Watkins, are more succinct timewise, but overall just as impressive. If you find this now OOP CD as inexpensively as I did, then it should definitely be time to get back to your "Roots.""
