BLUE MITCHELL - BRING IT HOME TO ME


Blue Mitchell for Blue Note from 1966
Blue Mitchell (tp) Junior Cook (ts) Harold Mabern (p) Gene Taylor (b) Billy Higgins (d)
Rudy Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, NJ, January 6, 1966
And another one that has yet to be awarded RVG treatment on the cd reissue front.So it's fork out for the vinyl or buy the Mosaic Complete Blue Mitchell sessions -either way it's gonna be pricey.Dusty Groove once had the vinyl in stock(sod long ago) and said this about it:
Excellent (and hard to find) Blue Mitchell session with a good modal groove, and some nice funky Blue Note playing, in the best style of the label's mid 60's output. Blue's joined here by Junior Cook on tenor, his old bandmate from Horace Silver's group, and Harold Mabern's on piano. The set's got a lot of nice rolling lyrical moments, but it also grooves with the best of them, and has a nice solid bottom.
Ripped @320 from the Mosaic Box Set.

Really can't thank you enough for this. 2nd tune, the last chords at the end of the run kill me. Wonderful. You've introduced me to a new favourite, Meester Orgy.

This is great Blue Mitchell. I have a few of his Blue Notes including Step Lightly plus a lot of his Riverside stuff. This is up there with Boss Horn and Blue's Moods. Thanks for making my day.
