LUTHER HUGHES and the CANNONBALL-COLTRANE PROJECT, THINGS ARE GETTING BETTER

Bassist Luther Hughes (Gene Harris) leads a game quintet on a well-programmed set of original and impressionistic tunes inspired by Cannonball Adderley and John Coltrane, as well as pianist McCoy Tyner and Wayne Shorter. This tribute recording zeroes in on the 1959 timeframe just prior to the time when the saxophonists cemented their legacy as jazz icons. Hughes and his joyfully swinging crew share an affinity for funky Brazilian-tinged tunes (“Green Bananas,” “Sunset at Hermosa”) loose-limbed originals and finger-poppin’ tunes like Ellington’s “Take the Coltrane.” But they pull out the stops for their perceptive arrangement of Nat Adderley’s “Jive Samba” and also “Softly as the Morning Sunrise,” a pair of tour-de-force workouts that are a feast for the ears.  (12 tracks; 74:08 minutes)


As of now, you can track this CD down at www.cdbaby.com. It's not yet posted on Amazon, but should be soon.
