Art Farmer – Yesterday's Thoughts

In the Jazz medium, if one speaks of the flugelhorn, Art Farmer comes to mind immediately. He was “instrumental” in popularizing the use of it, and no one has made it sound more lyrical. YESTERDAY’S THOUGHTS is a ballad effort, which includes Michel Legrand’s “What Are You Doing The Rest of Your Life”, Antonio Carlos Jobim’s Bossa Nova number, “How Insensitive,” and Johnny Mercer’s “Namely You.” The title track was written by Farmer’s good friend and collaborator, Benny Golson, and features Farmer’s warm horn playing. The accompanying rhythm section consists of some of the finest Jazz musicians of the time; pianist Cedar Walton, bassist Sam Jones and drummer Billy Higgins. Besides contributing with his outstanding piano solos on numerous tracks, Cedar Walton contributed the up-tempo number, “Firm Roots”, where the musicians expertly plays off each other.
