Booker Little - Out Front (2023 Re-Issue)
'Out Front' is the greatest realisation of trumpeter Booker Little's scope as a musician and composer, this brand new reissue has been remastered from the original Candid master tapes by Bernie Grundman
It is also one of only five sessions led by Little as a band leader before his premature death at the age of 23 in 1961. Arguably, the seven original compositions here might be more widely known today had his life not been so tragically cut short. Little is mostly known for his work with Max Roach, who he began playing with as early as 1955.
The sextet on these dates include the great Max Roach on drums, Eric Dolphy on reeds, and Julian Priester on drums.
