The Golden Men of Jazz : Live at the Blue Note


(as of Nov 11,2018 23:12:21 UTC – Details)

For a 1991 gig at the Blue Note in New York, vibraphonist Lionel Hampton headed a nonet full of classic veterans that were termed “the Golden Men of Jazz”: trumpeters Clark Terry and Harry “Sweets” Edison, tenors James Moody and Buddy Tate, trombonist Al Grey, pianist Hank Jones, bassist Milt Hinton and drummer Grady Tate. Even with its many loose moments, these great players came up with some notable moments, including James Moody’s humorous vocalizing on “Moody’s Mood for Love” and particularly fine playing by Terry and Grey; Tate and Edison do show their age a bit, but are welcome participants in what must have been an occasion for celebration. ~ Scott Yanow

…These men don’t just draw upon tradition, they wrote it…there’s no denying the joy, grace and easy mastery on display…
