The Prestige All Stars Tenor Conclave Hybrid Mono SACD
Hybrid Mono SACD in Mini LP Jacket!
Mastered by Kevin Gray from Original Mono Master Tapes!
Analogue Productions releases 25 of the most collectible, rarest jazz titles
ever in their Prestige Mono Series on Hybrid Mono SACD.
These SACD jackets feature printed wraps mounted to chipboard shells, producing
an authentic, "old school" look and feel: also referred to as "mini LP" jackets.
This unusual meeting of four tenor saxophone players from different "schools"
was part of the Prestige Friday afternoon jam session series but far from a
typical outing. The giant forebears of Coleman Hawkins, Lester Young, and
Charlie Parker inform the backgrounds of the performers on this LP — Hank
Mobley, Al Cohn, Zoot Sims, and John Coltrane — and other influences such as Ben
Webster, Dexter Gordon, and the Sonnys (Stitt and Rollins) show up, too,
depending on which of the four protagonists you're talking about.
With the Red Garland Trio supplying the underpinning, the four tenors meet on
the common ground of the blues ("Bob's Boys"), "I Got Rhythm" ("Tenor
Conclave"), and two old standards. (The originals are by Mobley.) Rather than
the stylistic differences, what stands out here is the compatibility and spirit
of the four meeting on this common ground in an uncommon session.
