Pianist/composer Bobby Timmons with Wayne Shorter:"The Soul Man"

This is a rather rare Prestige album recorded in January of 1966. Bobby Timmons was a very distinctive pianist who had many sides, one being that he could generate a lot of heat and exciteement with some very bluesy gospel flavoured playing but he also could be just as distinctive playing in a more straight ahead Bud Powell oriented style and yet preserving his identity. It's the latter style and mood that Bobby chooses to explore on this set. He hand-picked the band with Ron Carter on bass and Jimmy Cobb on drums and the great Wayne Shorter as the sole horn. Carter contributed three tunes to the set and Shorter wrote one...an affectionate tribute to Bobby Timmons called "Tom Thumb". Timmons wrote two originals for the date as well. This is not an innovative or revolutionary date but good solid Modern Jazz played with soul and swing....check out "The Soul Man".
