Fantastic bebop album from Milt. This one was released in 1988 forty years after the birth of bebop to tribute the genius of this music and of its creators Parker, Gillespie, Monk, Christian and Milt himself who was among the best of them all at the time. This album is simply superlative. The line up consists in Milt at the vibraharp, Jon Faddis, the Dizzie Gillespie alumn at the trumpet, JJ Johnson at the trombone, Jimmy heath tenor sx, Cedar Walton (the maestro!!) at the piano, John Clayton at the doublebass, Mickey Roker drums. The tunes are all fast bebop numbers from the era, Ornithology, Au privave, bebop blueses and anatolls from Parker's, Gillespie's, Dameron's pens. In the end of the selection the band play a stellar version of I" waited for you", a marvellous bebop ballad. It's simply pefect in the tune selection too. What can I say more? Uh, yes, the album is perfectly recorded .. it is a bebop album without the limits of the forties in the recording step. So it is a must have. The emphasis of the music is just right, just perfect. Solos are wonderful.
