4.0 out of 5 stars Free September 6, 2005
By Bomojaz
Format:Audio CD
The "Free" in the title of this album is not the Ornette Coleman type of free, but merely Golson's feeling that on this recording he had the "freedom" to do what he wanted without anyone else calling the shots. That is still very much in the mainstream tradition of modern jazz - hard bop style. Golson is especially fond of the lower register of the tenor and has a rolling style not unlike thunderclouds, albeit small sized ones. SOCK CHA CHA is an interesting tune: 43 bars long played with a latin rhythm except for the bridge, which is 16 bars long and played in straight 4/4. JUST IN TIME and JUST BY MYSELF are taken up tempo and they swing very nicely. The real standout on this album to these ears is pianist Tommy Flanagan who plays beautifully with quiet assurance. Ron Carter (b) and Arthur Taylor (d) round out the personnel; Taylor's drumming is ever-present but not the least bit intrusive. One or two tracks are below the others (SHADES OF STEIN is one), but a very good CD nonetheless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Golson on Argo September 6, 2005
By Bomojaz
Format:Audio CD
This CD contains more than one LP's worth of previously issued material: the complete FREE LP and about 3/4 of the TAKE A NUMBER FROM 1-10 LP, both on Argo. FREE, recorded in 1962, gave Golson the opportunity to record what and how he wanted, and the results were good. MAD ABOUT THE BOY is a tender ballad on which Golson plays quietly but not shyly. JUST BY MYSELF swings nicely, and SOCK CHA CHA, with its unusual structure, is both catchy and dynamic. Tommy Flanagan's piano is a real highlight of the album. TAKE A NUMBER FROM 1-10, made in 1960-61 (the 1961 sides are the ones left out), is an add-a-musician-with-each-track session, beginning with just Golson on YOU'RE MY THRILL. Before the last track is played Tommy Williams (d) Albert Heath (b) Cedar Walton (p) Freddie Hubbard (tp) Curtis Fuller (tb) and Sahib Shihab (bar) have been added. Everyone plays well so that the clever (but not unique) concept works. This CD is well worth a listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars This music is available in less expensive form elsewhere February 23, 2009
Format:Audio CD
The very fine quartet album entitled Free, which forms the heart of this pricey import CD, can also be found on the far cheaper two-fer sold under the title of Benny Golson with Wynton Kelly and Tommy Flanagan. See my separate review of Free under that heading .....
