Format: Audio CD
This impressive album by the underrated West Coast tenor saxophonist Harold Land(1928-2001) was recorded in Los Angeles during August, 1959 with the brilliant, but little-recorded trumpeter Dupree Bolton and a superb rhythm section of Elmo Hope(piano), Herbie Lewis(bass) & Frank Butler(drums).
Land and Bolton are on inspired form throughout the six tracks(two by Land & four by Hope) and the highlights are Hope's 'Mirror-Mind Rose' & 'One Down' plus Land's title-track.
'The Fox' is a neglected classic and this hard-swinging hard bop album deserves a place in any serious modern jazz collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars West Coast Hard Bop 18 April 2011
By Robert J. Ament - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
One of a very few albums that I have featuring Harold Land which I acquired back in 2004.......more than likely because West Coast jazz was supposed to be so laid back compared to East Coast jazz. Well, this album seemed to be very contradictive to that premise starting off with the title song which is really rapid fire hard bop exercising everyone's chops!

Of the six tracks on this cd, two of them were written by Land and the other four by pianist Elmo Hope, which brings me to the other sidemen, none of which I'd heard of before including Hope. This either proves, likely, that I'm not that well traveled or that these musicians never climbed out of obscurity. At any rate, they appear to be quite compatible when you listen to the harmony of the horns and the solos throughout the set. The only player I never recalled as a soloist was the bassist, Herbie Lewis.

There is only one slow tempo cut, "Mirror-mind Rose", which is hard to describe by me other than it seems to create a dark melancholy mood. The other cuts are very bright and up-tempo. The listening experience is enhanced because, for me, these compositions were a first time experience and I tend to listen a little more intently to unfamiliar material. The slections are symbolic of the bop patterns of the era. Why only four stars? The album didn't set me on fire as a "must have" which is dependent of course on the individual listener. I can recommend it because it is a good hard bop session featuring a quintet who knows what they are doing.

My other Harold Land was dreamy, seductive, mellow jazz. My preference and love for background. This would be great for a Jazz, jazz lover but wasn't what I wanted. Nothing wrong with it from the music part..just not my style.

Terrific disc and hearing it with the knowledge that this album is what spurred Cannonball Adderley to want the producer to take charge of his recordings make it even more interesting!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Land 3 Sept. 2009
By R. Petersson - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Most albums on Contemporary are excellent but some stick out a bit more. This is one of them. Harold Land is one of those guys, like Hank Mobley, that never came into the main light. Not yet, that is. He has a great tone, he swings and this set is one of his best. It is a real team effort. A real group full of stars. Go get it!

5.0 out of 5 stars The audacity of Hope 20 Jan. 2009
By Matthew Watters - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Mr Chell's offhand dismissal of Elmo Hope in his review here deserves a response. While The Fox is clearly Land's album--Land provides two of the tunes and recruited Dupree Bolton, who sounds like a far-more-daring version of Dizzy Gillespie--it was also clearly conceived as a session co-led by Elmo Hope, who wrote four of the tunes and solos first on a couple of them. The greatness of the sessions that produced this album, besides the inspired horn work by both Land and Bolton, is that they provided a full-blooded setting for the compositional work of Elmo Hope, whose intricate, puzzle-like tunes were almost snake-like in their complexity, but also dripping with sadness and emotionality frequently all-too-lacking from the "bebop" school from which Hope arose. Elmo Hope was one of the most criminally neglected talents of the 1950s and 60s, and Land at the time was all too aware of it, making The Fox Land's lasting tribute to the audacity of Hope.
