PAUL HORN - THE SOUND OF PAUL HORN
Paul Horn for Columbia from 1961.
Paul Horn (alto saxophone, flute); Emil Richards (vibraphone); Paul Moers (piano); Jimmy Bond, (bass). Milt Turner (drums).
More flute to boot featuring the sublime modal masterpiece "Mirage For Miles".
This sadly out-of-print Columbia LP features Paul Horn at the peak of his jazz powers. Horn, who after 1967 would stick mostly to mood music, was a fine jazz improviser who fell between cool jazz and hard bop. He doubles on alto and flute on six originals (including the lengthy "Mirage for Miles") plus "Without A Song" and "My Funny Valentine." Also in fine form are vibraphonist Emil Richards, pianist Paul Moer, bassist Jimmy Bond and drummer Milt Turner. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide
