Richie Cole - Hank Crawford Quintet - Bossa International

Richie Cole meets up with fellow altoist Hank Crawford on a spirited concert set. With guitarist Emily Remler, bassist Marshall Hawkins and drummer Victor Jones, Cole and Crawford romp on such numbers as "Confirmation," "Fantasy Blues," "Samba De Orpheus" and "Cherokee." This jam session date has its exciting moments and is easily recommended to bebop fans. - by Scott Yanow, AMG

"Individually we were well acquainted but had had never performed together as a group. I especially enjoyed this tour since I was not expected to be the band leader. We chose a repertoire of songs we all felt comfortable playing together plus everyone had a solo spot sometime during the concert. Our schedule did not give us much time to polish our act so this record illustrates the original format of jazz, the "jam session." - Richie Cole
