They had played together in the mainly mainstream blues based Gene Ammons band for a number of years before the "Cool Struttin'" session and the rapport between them is noticeable. Art Farmer's sophisticated trumpet sound is an excellent complement to Jackie McLean's altogether more direct alto sound, drawing Jackie McLean more 'inside' than he was to be on almost any of his subsequent recordings.
Their unison playing, breaking into occasional harmony, as on the title track or on "Blue Minor", is the signature sound of the album. And of course, Sonny Clark as leader sets the scene for all this magic to work. On the original vinyl album, he is composer on two tracks, "Cool Struttin'" and "Blue Minor". The latter track has none of the qualities of the remainder of the album and is best dismissed. Sonny Clark's piano style has been often described as being influenced by Bud Powell.
Yet as Johnny Griffin observed: ''Sonny was a little different. He used Bud's basis for power and attack on the piano, but he had another finesse and an exceptional technique, too.
He was quite himself. I was raised there till I was twelve, then lived in Pittsburgh until I was nineteen, just turning twenty; then an older brother, who plays piano, took me out to the West Coast to visit an aunt. I worked with Wardell Gray and all the fellows around the Coast. Then Oscar Pettiford came to town and we got a band and went to San Francisco.
Nothing illustrates this better than the memorable blues ballad "Parker's Mood," on which his soulful, wailing alto is matched by John Lewis's rich, lyrical accompaniment. These tracks contain other gems, including a young and nervous Miles Davis sputtering Fats Navarro-style trumpet solos on "Milestones" and "Now's the Time," with Gillespie playing piano.
Although he died at the age of 34 in , Parker, along with Dizzy Gillespie and Thelonious Monk, formed the Holy Trinity that created bebop, and this set is Bird flying high. Acquire, please legitimate discs, which no doubt will adorn your collection!
