Product Description

Product Description

2 LPs ON 1 CD! Two of Art Farmer s outstanding original quartet LPs in their entirety: Art (Argo LP678), featuring Tommy Flanagan on piano, and Perception (Argo LP738), with Harold Mabern at the keyboard. Includes a 16-page booklet. Art Farmer had become a true jazz legend by the time he died on October 4, 1999, at the age of 71. A master of the trumpet and the flugelhorn, Farmer first gained notoriety with the celebrated Jazztet, a group he formed with saxophonist Benny Golson. Although the Jazztet disbanded in 1962, Farmer and Golson would reunite during the 1980s. Farmer and Tommy Flanagan had known each other since at least 1956, when they both participated on the album Oscar Pettiford Orchestra in Hi-Fi. Their next preserved collaboration consisted of Milt Jackson s LP Bags Opus, which was recorded on December 28 & 29, 1958, and also featured Benny Golson, Paul Chambers and Connie Kay. Their next encounter took place on September 21-23, 1960, for the quartet sessions that would produce the album Art. On most of this CD, Farmer is heard on trumpet, however in 1961 (when Perception was made) he had begun to replace the trumpet with the flugelhorn, which had a warmer sound.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This CD, comprising two original LPs, is a truly remarkable offering. Farmer is an absolute master of lyricism and the rhythm sections supporting him are in perfect harmony with the trumpet maestro. It is amazing how, over both LPs, the quartets maintain such a high level of creativity - the momentum simply never flags - which is not easy in a trumpet-led quartet. It is suprising how Art Farmer never acheived the sort of fame afforded to such as Miles Davis or Chet Baker , because as a trumpet technician he was their superior and as a lyricist he was certainly their equal. It is simply impossible (or at any rate unnecessary) to pick out individual tracks for praise - they are all uniformally exquisite. If you haven't gathered it so far, this listener was simply bowled over by this CD and unhesitatingly recommends it as a "Must-Buy".
