This is the Charles Tolliver record to get, although it may be hard to find. The masterful trumpeter, in a quartet with pianist Stanley Cowell, bassist Steve Novosel, and drummer Jimmy Hopps, plays five of his strongest compositions. Highlights include the powerful "On the Nile," "The Ringer," and "Spur," but each of the numbers has its memorable moments. Tolliver is heard at the peak of his creative powers; it is strange that he never received the fame and recognition that he deserved.
Be very happy this hard-to-find is available...not an EP by any means clocking in at over 37 minutes...this album was recorded in 1969 and is one of the most underrated records of all-time! Charles Tolliver should be a household name...one of my deserted on an island choices...SUPERB!!!
I bought two tracks, Plight and Mother Wit, 2 bucks for 16 minutes of ethereal beauty, this music is clean, crisp, thoughtful, and all that's great about jazz. I was not too familiar with Charles Tolliver, however, he is obviously a superlative player with great imagination and stylistic grace.
Also, the accompanists here all top flight players. In good form too.
