Analogue Productions releases 25 of the most collectible, rarest, most
audiophile-sounding Rudy Van Gelder recordings ever made in their Prestige
Stereo Series on Hybrid Stereo SACD.
This session is a model of the emotionally intense ballad programs featured on
Prestige's Moodsville subsidiary. The great Kenny Burrell receives a major
assist from saxophone patriarch Coleman Hawkins (who is in exemplary
early-Sixties form), Hawkins's rhythm section of the time (made up exclusively
of natives of Burrell's hometown Detroit) and conga drummer Ray Barretto. The
choice of material and variety of settings are inspired, with Burrell heard solo
on "No More," over just bass and drums on "Guilty," in two different quintet
settings and on three titles by the full sextet. Each soloist is fully engaged
throughout, with things shifting into even higher gear when Burrell and Hawkins
converse on "Montono Blues" and "I Thought About You." With Coleman Hawkins,
Tommy Flanagan, Major Holley, Eddie Locke and Ray Barretto.
