Thad Jones: The Magnificent Thad Jones

Album Notes

The late Thad Jones is of jazz's royal Jones family, which also includes brothers Hank (piano) and Elvin (drums). A fine trumpeter/flugelhornist (with a distinctively big, mellow tone) and an imaginative composer and engaging arranger, Jones made a name for himself with Charles Mingus and Count Basie. He would also co-lead one of the finest big bands of the 1960's and '70's, the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra. But in the '50s, he helmed some fine hard bop sessions for Blue Note, and MAGNICENT lives up to its title. With the accompaniment of the superbly subtle drumming of Max Roach and piano by Detroit bop icon Barry Harris, one should require little else when seeking classic Blue Note bop-ery.
