Paul Jeffrey - Electrifying Sounds Of The Paul Jeffrey Quintet - lp
Here it is! One of the most sought-after jazz albums of the 60s! Many a neglected talent, waiting for his curtain to rise, gets a little frantic. Not Mr. Jeffrey. Cool and deep, he has frequently gone on doing his own thing. So the curtain rises on something special: a ?new? talent that is secure, original and mature. Planning to become a music educator, Jeffrey graduated from Ithaca College. Jazz called however, and moving from clarinet to tenor, he had his own band at Atlantic City in 1956. His first road experience with Illinois Jacquet?s big band. He has subsequently played with Howard McGhee and Maynard Ferguson. This is a very original, intimately communicative and altogether delightful album ? and one, I think that heralds the LP debut of an important talent. Paul Henley Jeffrey invites double and respectful attention: as a striking performer and as a jazz composer.
