Booker Little - Out Front

"Out Front" - Booker Little (tp); Julian Priester (tb); Eric Dolphy (as, b-cl,fl); Don Friedman (p); Art Davis, Ron Carter (b); Max Roach (dr, vib, perc)

Booker Little was the first trumpet soloist to emerge in jazz after the death of Clifford Brown to have his own sound. His tragically brief life (he died at age 23 later in 1961) cut short what would have certainly been a major career. This is supremely soulful modern jazz and one of his best albums ever as a leader. The album’s got a tremendous feel from the very first note and there are many strong moments during these consistently challenging and satisfying performances. He had a bold jazz vision that makes us miss his talents even more strongly than before!

Recording: March and April 1961 in Nola Penthouse Studios, New York City, by Bob d'Orleans
Production: Nat Hentoff
