This Savoy double CD brings together in one package all of the label's sessions led by Harden, a talented young musician who turned up briefly, disappeared and is presumed to have died in the 1960s. It includes several alternate takes, giving ample evidence of his attractiveness as a player. He wrote all the pieces, which are more substantial than the on-the-spot "compositions" of many Savoy sessions of the '50s. Sometimes playing trumpet and sometimes rotary valve flugelhorn, he was capable of range, power and bursts of speed, but he built many of his solos on a base of restraint, lyricism and a certain wistfulness.

This reissue sound very nice! (This rip can be your next "go to" version of this LP.)
Another excellent 1975 Atlantic reissue. I've heard different pressings of this LP and this has me amazed. Normally one wrinkle your nose when you hear the word "re-issue". But like everything, there are good and bad … and good reissues, they are very good! This is another great example, to clear doubts listen the most troubled and silent tracks: The Devil's Triangle (First 25 seconds), Cadence And Cascade, Peace - A Theme, etc. Is that the quality, detail, texture and sound separation… is without discussion.
Despite being major contenders for a decade, Trivium have made a habit of taking subtle detours with each album and never quite nailing their colours to one musical mast.
