Another extended series of “blowing sessions” that were so much part of the Prestige game plan in the 1950s, this one is notable for its pairing of two dissimilar tenor saxophonists, and two trumpeters who also contrast with one another.
One can also divide the four horn players by placing tenorman Coltrane and trumpeter Sulieman on one side and tenorman Jaspar with trumpeter Young on the other. The important thing is the way they interact on the changes of a blues; a “Rhythm”; another based on a great Kern standard; and Mal Waldron’s “Soul Eyes,” an original still being explored by contemporary groups.
