Swinging and inventive hard bop from the Red Mitchell-Harold Land Quintet in 1961.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hear Ye! (Audio CD)
Bassist Red Mitchell(1927-1992) and tenor saxophonist Harold Land(1928-2001) co-led this excellent quintet on the West Coast with the underrated trumpeter Carmell Jones(1936-1996), pianist Frank Strazzeri and drummer Leon Petties.
They recorded this album originally for ATLANTIC on October 14, 1961 and the six memorable tracks are all originals from members of the band.
Highlights include Land's 'Triplin' Awhile', Mitchell's 'Rosie's Spirit' & Carmell Jones 'Somara'.
'Hear Ye!' is an overlooked album full of swinging and inventive hard bop which, as the title suggests, certainly deserves a listen.
