Larry Young - Unity: Remastered (1999) Retail CD
This is surely one of the very greatest Blue Note albums and also one of the most over looked. Recorded at the end of 1965 it features Larry Young on Hammond organ, Woody Shaw on trumpet, Joe Henderson on tenor and Elvin Jones on drums.
On this album Larry Young really moved the organ forward as a Jazz instrument. As much as anyone recording in this period he understood and assimilated the ideas which John Coltrane was pursuing. Young and Coltrane also play their instruments in the same way: with power, emotion and freedom.
Henderson, who writes one tune, and Shaw, who writes three, are bothmore… excellent, the tenor man in particular, and add to the power of the album. Elvin Jones plays just as well as he'd been doing for the previous 5 years in Coltrane's band.
I don't think that the great recording engineer Rudy Van Gelder ever captured any instrument's sound as well as the swirling attack of the organ: sometimes pointed and precise, at other times there's a warmth which seems to envelope you.
This reissue is part of the Van Gelder Editions which means that the great man has done the excellent remastering and there are new liner notes.
If you enjoy this, as you can't fail to do, I'd also recommended Young's appearances, in a more conventional format, on two Blue Notes by guitarist Grant Green: `Talkin' About' and `Street of Dreams`.
