Recorded in 1961, The Blues and Abstract Truth is Oliver Nelson's most
As Oliver Nelson is known primarily as a big band leader and arranger, he is
lesser known as a saxophonist and organizer of small ensembles. Blues And The
Abstract Truth is his triumph as a musician for the aspects of not only defining
the sound of an era with his all-time classic "Stolen Moments," but on this
recording, assembling one of the most potent modern jazz sextets ever. Lead
trumpeter Freddie Hubbard is at his peak of performance, while alto saxophonists
Nelson and Eric Dolphy (Nelson doubling on tenor) team to for an unlikely union
that was simmered to perfection. Bill Evans (piano), Paul Chambers (bass) and
Roy Haynes (drums) can do no wrong as a rhythm section.
