The Jazztet: Art Farmer(trumpet) and Benny Golson(tenor saxophone):"Meet The Jazztet"

This fine little band existed in from 1960 to 1963 and was an important working group of this period. It was co-led by trumpeter Art Farmer and tenor saxophonist/composer/arranger Benny Golson. They wanted a three-horn front line for more compositional flexibility and sound and chose as their first trombonist, Curtis Fuller. The pianist was Golson's choice and it was a young McCoy Tyner who makes his recording debut here. Art Farmer's twin brother Addison is on bass and a young Philadelphian chosen by Golson again was drummer Lex Humphries. They recorded a series of albums for the Chicago-based Argo label (a Jazz division of Chess Records) and this was their fine debut date recorded in February of 1960. It had 10 tunes on it all arranged by Golson and it is a fine beginning of a very good band that was very representative of the style that was prevailant in the early 60s. Meet The Jazztet!
