An archetypal record from the west coast scene of the 50s – a sublime batch of lightly grooving numbers from Chico Hamilton's famous early Quintet! The power here really comes from a triad of three players – reedman Buddy Collette, mentioned in the title and playing flute, alto, tenor, and clarinet; guitarist Jim Hall, whose spacious use of his instrument set new standards with this record; and cellist Fred Katz, often an unsung hero whose gentle sound shapes really helped bring a sense of tone and color to the group. Also featured is bassist Carson Smith, giving the same great sensitive accompaniment here he did in Gerry Mulligan's early quartet – and Chico himself is on drums, of course, but often playing with unusual timings and touches that really make for a lot more than conventional rhythm! Titles include "Blue Sands", "The Sage", "A Nice Day", "Buddy Boo", and "Spectacular" – as well as "Free Form", which is totally improvised – although in a way that's very different from any 60's track that would have the same sort of name! (Black label Pacific Jazz pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear, with splitting and tape on the seams. Label has a name sticker.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
