This Blue Mitchell album is a classic, particularly the opening “Fungii Mama,” which is really catchy. The trumpeter’s quintet of the period (which includes tenor saxophonist Junior Cook, the young pianist Chick Corea, bassist Gene Taylor, and drummer Al Foster) also performs two Jimmy Heath tunes and a song apiece by Joe Henderson (“Step Lightly”) and Corea. The record is prime Blue Note hard bop, containing inventive tunes, meaningful solos, and an enthusiastic but tight feel. Highly recommended.
This book is part of a project by Erik Veldkamp to transcribe the complete albums of Blue Mitchell, note for note. There is no better way to dive into the vocabulary of one of the greatest jazz players in history, than to see his solos come to life on the page.
