Les Liaisons Dangereuses (Lp)
Label: Be! Jazz
The music presented here, composed and conducted by Duke Jordan, is an important jazz work. Duke Jordan was known as Charlie Parker's pianist, and his solo recordings revealed an original form in music, a genius pianist and composer. Jordan's original music for 'Les Liaisons Dangereuses' was recorded in 1959, featuring Art Taylor and Charlie Rouse, two members of Duke's group. With these recordings Duke Jordan clearly announced the dawning of a new era in jazz. This reissue comes with newly remastered sound.
