Editorial Reviews

Limited 180gm vinyl pressing of this 1979 album from the late Jazz great. This collection of 1961 recordings is a treasure - and an album that was almost left in the vaults by Blue Note, until they briefly released it at the end of the 70s! The cover and title are a bit unfamiliar, but the music is right up there with Byrd's classic sessions with baritonist Pepper Adams, a great player here, with a deftness on his horn that's incredible, matching all the sharp changes and soulful undercurrents of Byrd's sparkling trumpet. There's a nice hard sound to the whole thing - almost the raw power of the pair's albums for the Warwick label - and as with those, Herbie Hancock is on piano, giving the whole thing an excellent Soul Jazz groove that really kicks the main soloists into action!

I have almost all of the Don Bryd & Pepper Adams and this is by far some of the best Pepper ever recorded !
Beautiful, powerful and eventive ideas from Pepper. He was an icon for the Baritone Sax! Absolutely Great Album.
Its to bad they never released it until much later. Yours truly Brian

Excellent quality. Love the re-issuing of 'classic' BLUE NOTE jazz recordings. Also, nice to see a return to vinyl, especially the heavier 180 gram variety. I have already recommended 'Chant" to musician friend. - J.P. Chandler, Az.

It was a pleasant surprise to discover that this CD was actually the first to feature Herbie Hancock and "Royal Flush" recorded 5 months later. Perhaps there was some technical errors in the playing that kept it in the can but I don't hear them here and if there were--it's minor. Herbie as always sounds great perhaps a little 7th chord heavy due to the Bud Powell influence but his backing of Donald & Pepper is sublime particularly when Adams steps out in a solo with a splendid "Sophisticated Lady". Recommended for Byrd/Adams and also for Hancock fans as well.
