Al Cohn: Four Classic Albums Plus (Mr Music / Al Cohn Quintet Ft Bob Brookmeyer / Al & Zoot / Bob Brookmeyer Ft Al Cohn) (2CD)

Ref: AMSC969

(UK Postage Free )


AVID Jazz presents four classic Al Cohn albums on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD.
‘Mr Music’, ‘The Al Cohn Quintet featuring Bob Brookmeyer’, ‘Al & Zoot’ and returning the favour and reversing the billing ‘Bob Brookmeyer featuring Al Cohn’.
Writer, arranger, performer, sideman and leader Al Cohn was one of the ‘rare creative artists gifted with unlimited and technical resources... and an unerring insight into the expressivness of modern jazz’.
Starting out and learning his trade, as did fellow sax man Zoot Sims, in the big bands, most notably with Woody Herman, Al Cohn is perhaps primarily remembered as a fine sideman.
However here we feature him on three albums as the front man, firstly on the aptly titled ‘Mr Music’ featuring his orchestra, secondly ‘The Al Cohn Quintet featuring Bob Brookmeyer’, thirdly with his old sparring partner Zoot Sims for ‘Al & Zoot’ and finally Brookmeyer returns the favour on his album ‘Bob Brookmeyer featuring Al Cohn’.
Among the fine musicians to look out for we feature Mose Allison, Joe Newman, Billy Byers, Milt Hinton, Billy Bauer and many more.
For good measure and extra value we complete the set with a couple of tracks from the ‘Winners Circle’ album.
All four albums have been digitally re-mastered for probably the finest sound quality ever!
