Riverside/OJC, 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
Hard to find Riverside LP of this group led by Gigi Gryce running down nice hard bop numbers. There's no dry academic performances here, not that you'd guess that from the line-up, but the title kind of leads you in that direction.

One of the rarest Barry Harris albums – and an obscure solo session from 1961!
