A Master Indeed
What a wonderful surprise: a new statement from one of the music's great saxophonists. More than 50 years ago he played stunningly well on Miles's live concerts from Philharmonic Hall (Four and More/My Funny Valentine) and on Hancock's Maiden Voyage. He made great records with the tragically short-lived Booker Little. HIs own too few albums are superb, powerful and adventurous improvisations on the blues and show tunes. The sound on this new record is gorgeous. I've played it once and will be playing it many more times.
