Kenny Burrell/Thad Jones/Frank Wess – After Hours


This is one of the most exceptional products of the blowing session format Prestige favored in the Fifties. Thad Jones and Frank Wess, with more room than was their nightly lot in Count Basie’s band, are at their best, as is Kenny Burrell (as soloist and rhythm section player); and Mal Waldron, the backbone of Prestige’s session era, provides a perfect setting with four originals and his own playing and organizing skills.

    I got a theory that hip-hop heads have a more refined taste for jazz than the average music head or even jazz head(what?!!) At least from the dj’s i’ve met and in the blogosphere this seems to be true. you guys dont disappoint. thanks

    If this is anything like “All Night Long” (similar personnel) it will be a champ!

    Thank you!
