Various - Soho Scene '59 - Soho Scene '59 (Jazz Goes Mod)
British record buyers had to wait until 1960 to hear the great American albums of 1959; John Coltrane’s debut LP, Charles Mingus’s Ah Um and Horace Silver’s Blowin’ the Blues Away. On the home front, in December 1959, Tubby Hayes was already absorbing influences from these albums while cutting his latest LP, Tubby’s Groove.
This LP pits Britain’s finest jazz tracks of 1959 up against the very best music coming out of the States at the same time, showing that British modernists could at last stand tall among jazz music’s giants.
