THIS IS KENNY’S ONLY SINGLE-HORN QUARTET SESSION. HE PROBABLY COULD HAVE MADE
A  DOZEN  OF  THEM,  BUT  HE  WAS A GIVER  AND  FAVORED  THE  TWO  HORN  CONVERSATIONS
OF A QUINTET MOST FREQUENTLY.  THIS  RECORD,  MUCH LIKE ALL OF KENNY’S STUFF,  IS  ALL
ABOUT A BALANCED APPROACH TO MATERIAL,  AND ASSURANCE.  HE  HITS  THE  RIGHT  NOTES
QUITE  OFTEN,  AND HIS COMPOSITIONS DON’T SUFFER ONE  BIT  SIDE  BY  SIDE TO  THE  OTHER
CLASSICS HERE ––––THIS IS A VERY BEAUTIFUL  RECORDING BY ONE OF THE MOST UNDERATED
TRUMPET PLAYERS  IN  THE  HISTORY  OF  JAZZ. ON THIS WONDERFUL ALBUM,  KENNY LEADS A
SAX-FREE QUARTET (THE ONLY  TIME  HE WOULD  BE  SANS  A  PARTNER  ON  SAX) AND  PROVES
THAT HE IS MORE THAN CAPABLE OF SHOULDERING THE LOAD  . . .      THIS ORIGINAL 1959 FIRST
MONO  DEEP  GROOVE  PRESSING  APPEARS  IN  ASTOUNDING  CONDITION   - - -   SHINY  PLAYING
SURFACE  WITH NO MARKS  OR  SCRATCHES,  OBVIOUSLY  LISTENED  TO  IT  PERHAPS  ONCE  OR
TWICE.   THE PURPLE LABELS ARE CLEAN,  “RVG” STAMPED IN THE DEAD WAX.  THE COVER HAS
TINY PAPER WEAR TO BOTTOM OF SPINE AND  “PREVIEW  COPY” STAMPED   ON  THE BACK SIDE.
THIS  CORNERSTONE OF JAZZ  ALBUMS HAS BEEN REISSUED  SEVERAL   TIMES ON VINYL AND CD
BUT   THIS  IS  THE  REAL   DEAL  AND  NEXT   TO   IMPOSSIBLE   TO   GET  A  BETTER   ONE . . .
