An Afternoon with Thad Jones
Trumpeter Thad Jones recorded this superb album in 1956 with Billy Mitchell on tenor, Barry Harris piano, Percy Heath on bass, Max Roach drums and Kenny Burrell on guitar. The rhythm section here is Top-Notch and demonstrates that Thad was a great soloist and performer. This is Bop at its best and Thad’s second album as leader before his famous association with Mel Lewis. This music has given me a great Sunday afternoon and you will definitely want to include this in your collection.
