Hey… I’ve Just Discovered Pepper Adams!!!

Considered the most significant and influential baritone saxophonist in jazz. Baritone Sax wasn’t considered a “Hard Bop” instrument but Pepper Adams style and technique was quick with a big sound that fit well with this music. He was nick-named ‘The Knife’ for his sound on the horn, he can be heard on John Coltrane’s Dakar, Lee Morgan’s The Cooker, and Charles Mingus’s Blues and Roots. As a leader I suggest 3 albums, Encounter10 to 4 At The 5 Spot, and The Adams Effect.  His collaborations with Donald Byrd and his double album At The Half Note Cafe  are MUST HAVES.
