Swinging cats 12 Sept. 2004
By Jazzcat - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is an album that no Jazz fan should miss. It's another 1957 album (but, how many Jazz albums did the record industry produced that year? I guess thousands!) and this could be enough. But there's a lot more here. "The cats" is a strong release still considering that it came out in the Jazz magic year. It is one of those albums that immediatly catch your attention and that become one of those that you really can't stay too much time far from ... The line up is stellar: Flanagan piano, Coltrane tenor sax, Burrell guitar, Sulieman trumpet, Watkins doublebass, Louis Hayes drums. The program is terrific: the opener "Minor mishap" is a minor swinger similar to "Strode rode" from Rollins's "Saxophone colossus" for example. Sublime the band's interpretation of the Gershwin's classic ballad "How long has this been going on" (which can stand as "You don't know what love is" in Colossus .. and the similarities between these two albums are not ended...). Another wonderful tune is "Eclypso" another calypso tune similar to the one you can find in "Saxophone colossus", "St. Thomas". Last tune is a blues (again like in Colossus) and "Solacium" is a medium tempo hard bop thing (which can stand as "Moritat" in Colossus even if Moritat is a standard, it's "Mack the knife"). Who knows maybe Flanagan was responsible for the Colossus program too!!? Just Joking (but Flanagan did play in Colossus for real!), anyway believe me, in this album the atmosphere is just RIGHT, the one that every Jazz enthusiast search in a Jazz album. I don't have a favourite soloist among the guys here, sure Flanagan gives a great classic finesse to the overall balance, Burrell addedd some "funky" spice, Sulieman provided exceptionally clear trumpet solos and Coltrane, for once, is not too obtrusive. I mean he didn't play 48 choruses on each tune! Good! Great balance, great fifties Jazz record. You can buy it with confidence. Uh, the cover is soooooo cool !!!

Hear the Cats Purr! 30 Jan. 2009
By Roger Berlind - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
While Flanagan, Coltane, Burrell and Sulieman were given equal billing on the album cover, the excellent 1957 session featured on this CD was actually lead by pianist Tommy Flanagan. He wrote all the original tunes and was featured in a trio setting on the Gershwin song "How Long Has This Been Going On?"

My main reason for getting this album was the presence of Idrees Sulieman on trumpet. I consider him an outstanding and unfortunately under-rated trumpeter. I first discovered him on "The Hawk Flies High" by Coleman Hawkins and also have "Now is the Time" which he recorded in 1976. Of course, the other topnotch musicians on this album are probably well known to many of you already.

Based on the liner notes, "The Cats" could be viewed as both the name of the album and as the name of the group of musicians assembled for its recording. So, get this CD and har the cats purr!

Nice kitty 27 Feb. 2009
By Matthew Watters - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Themes like "Solacium" and "Minor Mishap" come pretty close to attaining that classic, stately Blue Note sound that you hear on albums like BLUE TRAIN or NEWK'S TIME, and Idrees Sulieman has to be one of the most underrated musicians of his time. Sulieman had this great Eldrige-like tone, but he also was incredibly adventuresome, experimenting with time and "wrong" notes in a way that would have made Monk smile. Perhaps put on a lower shelf critically because the circumstances of its making gave it a whiff of being just another Prestige Records "blowing" session -- maybe not a Tommy Flanagan-led session at all, this may in fact have just been Trane, Burrell and Sulieman blowing on some Flanagan heads -- this album nevertheless creates some real smokey, late-night magic. These CATS deserve to be put on the top shelf where they belong.

I keep coming back to this album 6 Jan. 2014
By Mike Tarrani - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Disclaimer: I am a mid-1950s Prestige junkie so this album has a lot of appeal to me personally. To be totally objective this is not an essential album by any stretch, but for folks like myself who believe that this and other Prestige albums are from a golden age the music is compelling.

Run through the sound samples on this page. That is the best way to determine whether I am some crazy or there is merit to my fondness for this album. As you cycle through the sound samples you will probably notice that track 2 is not the full sextet, but a trio with Tommy Flanagan on piano, Doug Watkins on bass and Louis Hayes on drums. All of the remaining tracks feature that core trio with John Coltrane on tenor sax and Idrees Sulieman on trumpet forming a front line, and Kenny Burrell on guitar adding a new dimension to the rhythm section. This is classic music from Prestige during the era.

This is one of the The Prestige All Stars sessions with no real featured artist. It is more of a promo type recording that labels back in that era recorded. It was recorded for Prestige at Rudy van Gelder's Hackensack, NJ studio on April 18, 1957. It was released two years later on both the Original Jazz Classic and Prestige labels. This may not be on the short list of many jazz fans as a desert island album, but it's nonetheless a great listen.

The Master Cats 16 Feb. 2013
By Morehouse 1960 - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this album. The clarity of the tunes was excellent, and the selection of the tunes for this album were just wonderful. Here again you have the masters of their instruments coming together to offer an extra-ordinary album. The Master Pianist in Tommy Flanagan; The Greatest Tenor Saxophonist in John Coltrane; a good Trumpeter in Idrees Sulieman; a great Guitarist in Kenny Burrell; a great Bassist in Doug Watkins;, and a great Drummer in Louis Hayes.

Yes, I would really recommend this album for any one that has a true affection for Jazz Music.

Morehouse 1960.
