Larry Young's Hammond organ classic from 1965.,
This review is from: Unity (Audio CD)
Hammond organist Larry Young(1940-1978), aka Khalid Yasin Abdul Aziz, was originally influenced by Jimmy Smith but John Coltrane is the major inspiration on this marvellous quartet album.
It was recorded in New Jersey on November 10, 1965 in the esteemed company of tenorist Joe Henderson, trumpeter Woody Shaw and drummer Elvin Jones.
The six memorable tracks include three originals by Woody Shaw and one by Joe Henderson plus a wonderful Young/Jones duet version of Thelonious Monk's 'Monk's Dream' and the standard 'Softly As In A Morning Sunrise'.
This well-integrated group create some exciting and adventurous music and this RVG Edition of 'Unity' deserves a place in any modern jazz collection.
