Genre: Jazz

In stock


* 2022 stock * Recorded in 2001 and originally released by Marge in France. Sonny Simmons (born in 1933 on Sicily Island, Louisiana), who has shown his vitality in recent years by releasing new works on QWest and CIMP, is an excellent free alto player with a hard-edged and profound spiritual style. This time, the quintet with Eddie Henderson and John Hicks is more into the new mainstream hard bop style. The quintet's music is a well-balanced mixture of the bright, crisp, Dolphy-like new jazz world and the hot, aggressive, spiritual and passionate Coltrane style (similar to the Loft style). This is the quintessence of the powerful, passionate, heroic Modal style. The colorful solos by Simmons, Henderson, and Hicks are all in fine form, and the result is a truly refreshing finish that is heavy and solid, but also full of a simple, clear, and natural sense of freedom.
