Description

Back to the Tracks on CD

Harold "Tina" Brooks was a colorful player (and exceptional composer) who's hard bop solos were soulful, inventive and stimulating. Brooks had the misfortune of having three of his four Blue Note albums as a leader lay unissued until he had passed away. As difficult as it is to believe after listening, "Back to the Tracks" was one of these unreleased sets. In truth, there was no logical reason why this very rare 1960 session was bypassed for it features Brooks coming up with one brilliant solo after another throughout a consistently superb set. With a stellar cast including trumpeter Blue Mitchell, altoist Jackie McLean and a superb rhythm section on a mixture of originals and standards Brooks plays his heart out during these rare recordings that really define where jazz was in 1960. "Back to the Tracks" is a timeless hard bop gem that should not to be missed! The definitive versions of Blue Note are on XRCD24 - the optimization of CD mastering and manufacturing. Plays on all standard CD players.
