Format: Audio CD
I have been an unabashed fan of Oliver Nelson since I first heard the retrospective compilation of his work on the vinyl "A Dream Deferred" (Flying Dutchman), which unfortunately never made it to CD. Thank God I still have a decent turntable!!Lovingly compiled and annotated by Nat Hentoff, it has some abolutely captivating music: two versions of "Black, Brown and, Beautiful"(the second with Johnny Hodges doing the alto work), "Heidi," "Creole Love Song," and my FAVORITE JAZZ TUNE, "Echoes of Harlem"(also featuring Johnny Hodges). Some of these are available on an import under Hodges' name "Three Shades of Blue." I later learned that I actually had been listening to him in his work for Jimmy Smith--"Walk on the Wild Side," "Blues and the Abstract Truth" and more. Imagine my delighted chagrin when, after buying this disc sans audition, I discovered the gems therein. Although there are a few clunkers(I won't name them), most of the stuff here smokes, from the rollicking, romping power of "One for Duke," "Complex City," and "An Ordinary Day in New York" to the haunting "Paris Blues." No wonder Hollywood seduced him into crafting some rather powerful film and TV scores ("Death of a Gunfighter", "Ironsides" and "The Six Million Dollar Man".) Anothjer of the great tragedies of our technological transitions is that RCA Bluebird saw fit to let his magnum opus "Black Brown and Beautiful" go out of print. Lacking that wonderful disc, "Jazz Masters 48", along with "Afro-American Sketches", conveys some of the genius of this consummately gifted player, composer, and orchestrator. Highly recommended for anyone who likes large ensemble music.
