Posterity remembers Oliver Nelson (1932-1975) primarily as an
arranger/conductor. When he first began to attract attention with a series of
albums for Prestige and its subsidiaries, however, Nelson was hailed as a
versatile leader of small groups and a composer/instrumentalist who could
refresh the music's traditional verities while also looking ahead. There is no
better showcase for these skills among his initial sessions than Screamin' the
Blues, a rousing set of funky modernism interpreted by a sextet of players who
shared Nelson's allegiance to both virtuosity and vision. The pairing of
saxophonist Eric Dolphy with Nelson was particularly inspired as both men were
adept on more than one instrument, and allowed this sextet to create an uncommon
diversity of colors. Nelson and Dolphy would reunite a year later on both the
classic Blues and the Abstract Truth and (with the band heard here minus
trumpeter Richard Williams) on the looser yet intense Straight Ahead. With
Richard Williams, Eric Dolphy, Richard Wyands, George Duvivier and Roy Haynes.
