BLOWING IN FROM CHICAGO (CD) - John Gilmore, Clifford Jordan, Horace Silver, Curly Russel, Art Blakey
This is one of 3 recordings John Gilmore made outside of Sun Ra's band. There's only one standard here, Billie's Bounce by Charlie Parker. The remaining tunes are a revelation of arranging and interesting solo orders. Besides the great playing by the two saxophonists, this is some very inspired and creative playing by Horace Silver and Art Blakey.
