Format: LP

Genre: Jazz

Out of stock

This is Harriott on the verge of the free form/abstract period, but here, still anchored in the hard bop mode. This is stylish, elegant, tight, swinging; whatever label of appreciation you want to attach to it, this is still fresh music creation. This record sticks to the quintet line-up of sax, trumpet, piano, bass and drums (as on Movement), but with the added pizzazz of a superb bongos player on a couple of tracks, just to heighten the sense of hepness to the proceedings. Partly original compositions, partly covers (including a dynamic take on Caravan), this was Harriott's first long-playing record as a leader. Personnel : Joe Harriott - Alto Saxophone, Coleridge Goode - Bass, Frank Holder - Bongos, Bobby Orr - Drums, Harry South - Piano, Hank Shaw - Trumpet, Shake Keane - Trumpet, Flugelhorn.
