Noon Edition

Meet The Jazztet

On this edition of Night Lights, it's "Meet the Jazztet," a program of recordings taken from the recent Mosaic collection of Benny Golson and Art Farmer's work for the Argo and Mercury labels between 1960 and 1962. Some of the players who passed through the Jazztet included McCoy Tyner, Harold Mabern, Cedar Walton, Curtis Fuller, and Grachan Moncur III; it remains one of jazz's alltime great hardbop groups. (Golson, Fuller, and Farmer reunited in 1984 for further performances and recordings.) We'll also hear from some of the solo records which Golson and Farmer recorded during that period. There's more information about the Mosaic set here.
