Blue Note Records continues its long-running Connoisseur series with five more reissues on May 13:
Art Farmer, Brass Shout/The Aztec Suite
Bobby Hutcherson, Head On
Dizzy Gillespie/James Moody/Gil Fuller, Monterey Jazz Festival
Louis Smith, Smithville
Stanley Turrentine, Return of the Prodigal Son
That's quite an interesting assortment of titles-another 1970s Bobby Hutcherson date, Stanley Turrentine teaming up with Duke Pearson for two 1967 large-ensemble sessions, circa-1959 Art Farmer in front of a Chico O'Farrill-led big band, augmented by three Latin percussionists...a veritable bonanza in today's ever-shrinking world of jazz CD reissues. I'll try to post some reviews when they come out next month.
