This little-known Blue Note session by tenor saxophonist Harold Land
went unreleased until this 1980 LP. Land
and an obscure supporting cast (trumpeter Martin Banks
, pianist Amos Trice
, bassist Clarence Jones
, and drummer Leon Pettis
) perform five hard bop originals and a lyrical "You're My Thrill." The performances, which are now hard to find, should interest Land
collectors and fans of the era's modern mainstream jazz, although overall the results are not that memorable.
