Trumpeter Blue Mitchell made his name when he was a member of the Horace Silver Quintet, who were at the vanguard of the soul-jazz movement in the late 50s early 60s and recorded several best-selling albums for Blue Note: ‘Finger Poppin’, ‘Blowin’ the Blues Away’ and ‘The Tokyo Blues’. When the Quintet disbanded, Mitchell formed his own combo and signed to Blue Note direct. In the early 70s he signed to Bob Shad’s Mainstream Records at a point where he was a successful session player, utilized by John Mayall and Ray Charles, among others.
