Editorial Reviews

Besides his importance as one of the first bop pianists, a major jazz composer, and a prototypical trio player (as heard on The George Wallington Trios), for a time pianist George Wallington was also a New York combo leader and talent scout on the order of Art Blakey and Miles Davis. This 1956 session comes from the period when Wallington was musical director at the Cafe Bohemia in Greenwich Village, where the present quintet introduced then-young lions trumpeter Donald Byrd and alto saxophonist Phil Woods to jazz's major leagues.Cut from the analogue masters by renowned mastering engineer Kevin Gray.

Format: Audio CD
In the 1950s, George Wallington was one of the best bop pianists in the Bud Powell tradition. Wallington led a number of excellent groups, including this quintet which included Donald Byrd (trumpet), Phil Woods (alto), Teddy Kotick (bass) and Art Taylor (drums). Good early hard bop and straightforward blowing by all. Highly recommended. Wallington disappeared from the jazz scene in 1957, to return in the 1980s with a few solo albums before passing away in 1993.

I have the 200 gram, mono pressing. It was pressed by Analogue Productions, and they did a fantastic job. I suggest ordering from Acoustic Sounds. They're fantastic with distributing vinyl, especially these hard-to-find jazz titles.
