Jazz drummer Greg Adams was active on the Los Angeles experimental jazz scene of the early 1980s. Based in the working class coastal town of Long Beach, California, and with longstanding ties to the industrial east coast city of Wilmington, Delaware, Adams sought to hearken back to the naturalistic form of be-bop, which is why he recorded the material on Koolin Out in a live session with no overdubs in April 1983. Privately pressed in minute quantities as the sole entity on his own hip city imprint, the album features individual arrangements of John Coltrane’s Moment’s Notice and Mr P.C., Wayne Shorter’s Armageddon, Joe Henderson’s Recordame and an extended version of Bobby Hutcherson’s Little Bee’s Poem. The album features Dadisi Komolafe on flute, Motown / Nimbus alumnus Nate Morgan on piano, and Panafrikan People’s Orchestra saxophonist, Kafi Larry Roberts.
