Phil WOODS & Tom HARRELL – The Jazz Masters 1986
The Jazz Masters.
2006 Issue.


Clean, simple, and beautiful blowing from the frontline team of Phil Woods on alto and Tom Harrell on trumpet – a great little date that’s recorded with a beautifully understated quality! There’s no tricks, gimmicks, or too-contemporary influences to bog the set down – and both players are very focused in their work here, moving in unison as if they’d been sharing the same bandstand for a number of years. The full group’s a quintet – with Hal Galper on piano, Steve Gilmore on bass, and Bill Goodwin on drums – and the tunes are a wonderful mix of bold colors and sharper solo lines – on titles that include “Times Mirror”, “Ya Know”, “Tenor Of The Times”, “Another Jones”, “111-44”, and “My Azure”.
