Art Farmer: When Farmer Met Gryce (CD: Prestige- US Import)Art Farmer: When Farmer Met Gryce (CD: Prestige- US Import)
Art Farmer (1928-1999) and Gigi Gryce (1927-1983) had a special relationship going in the mid-Fifties. They had been bandmates in the Lionel Hampton orchestra that visited France and Sweden in 1953, the band that included Clifford Brown, Jimmy Cleveland, et al., and discovered a natural musical camaraderie. Back in New York they further developed this affinity as Manhattan neighbors and musical partners. It was a specific association that lasted into 1956.

On the first of the two dates here, Art and Gigi are backed by the Prestige house rhythm section of the time--Horace Silver, Percy Heath, and Kenny Clarke. It is a hot blowing session. (Fantasy, Inc.)

Art Farmer & Benny Golson: Meet The Jazztet (CD: Fresh Sound)
Here is the swinging debut of the Jazztet - the group that set the jazz world on fire just a few months after they made their official first public appearance on November 16, 1959 in New York’s Five Spot café. The Jazztet won the new star award among jazz groups in the 1960 Down Beat International Jazz Critics poll. This album was originally issued on Argo.

Art Farmer and Benny Golson led this sextet that sounds like a big band, with the idea of giving ample space to each soloist, but within a framework that did more than set up lines at the beginning and end in a jam session type of group. With composer-arranger Golson doing the majority of the writing, this was fully accomplished.

Personnel : Art Farmer (tp), Benny Golson (ts, narrator on #10), Curtis Fuller (tb), McCoy Tyner (p), Addison Farmer (b) and Lex Humphries (d). Recorded at Nola Studios, New York City, on February 6, 9 & 10, 1960. Total time: 40:42 min. - 10 tracks - 24-Bit Digitally Remastered. (Discovery Records)
