Booker Little: Out Front (Vinyl LP)
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. Featuring: Julian Priester, trombone; Eric Dolphy, alto saxophone, bass clarinet, flute; Don Friedman, piano; Art Davis, bass; Max Roach, drums, tympani, vibes. 180 gram vinyl.
