Tenor and alto saxophonist/composer Oliver Nelson: "Screamin' The Blues"

"Screamin' The Blues" is really a classic album that doesn't enjoy the same fame as Mr. Nelson's "The Blues And The Abstract Truth". It was recorded by similiar personnel but for a smaller label (Prestige/New Jazz) and about 8 months before the "Abstract Truth" date. Make no mistake the level of music is just as high as it the creativity. The people involved on this session are Richard "Notes" Williams on powerhouse trumpet and the wonderful Eric Dolphy on alto saxophone and bass clarinet.Mr. Nelson plays both alto and tenor saxophones. Pianist Richard Wyands is tasteful and swinging, the great George Duvivier is on bass and Mr."Snap Crackle" aka Roy Haynes is on drums. Well thought out and organized as most Nelson recordings are...this sounds like a working band and it's close because everyone's head is in the same place. It's a great listen!
