Organ innovator Larry Young with Woody Shaw,Joe Henderson and Elvin Jones: "Unity"

This album is one of the most iconic Blue Note releases in that it represents four young men who are advancing the Jazz Tradition by not abandoning that tradition. Most prominent is the leader, Hammond organist Larry Young who is taking the instrument beyond blues and greasy funk and into other musical realms.The two horns are representative of modern thinking and both are innovators and important stylists, trumpeter Woody Shaw and on tenor saxophone, Joe Henderson.These two blend so well and seem to breathe together. On drums is the always powerful yet tasteful Elvin Jones who works so well with Larry Young's bass lines. Three great Woody Shaw tunes are featured plus a swinging blues by Henderson and a great standard, "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise". One bonus is the duo track with Young and Jones doing Thelonious Monk's "Monk's Dream". A classic and innovative date unlike any other session that featured the Hammond organ."Unity" is an important milestone.
