UNDERAPPRECIATED

Of the six sessions, only three were released at the time. It's Time, Action and Right Now count

among the records that were as good as it gets, hut for some reason they were ignored. It wasn't inilil the late 1970s that Jackknife and High

Frequency were packaged together as the double album Jackknife, while Consequences, the

remaining date, was released even later. The mystery is, how did these records get so little attention, when the music on them is

impossible to overlook? It's nothing less than gorgeous, insistent, solid hard bop, but with a new flavor. And when Jackie solos, you're hearing real statements. Coherent, sharp, personal. Beauti

fully fashioned and complete, his playing swings from beginning to end. This important period in Jackie's long career includes some of his best and least recog nized music, from an artist who has always been a personal favorite of us here at Mosaic. We are

happy to present it all as it happened, complete and in chronological order. The booklet is by the late David Rosenthal, author of Hard Hop, with rare photographs from the original sessions by Francis Wolff.

i t a 1964 session for Grant Green's Talkin'About album, featuring

Larry Young on organ and Elvin Jones on drums, Alfred [.ion heard Young's astounding talent and signed him to Blue Note right away.

ALFRED

LION

KNEW

For the next 12 months Lion kept Larry Young

busy recording his Blue Note solo debut album, Into Something, and appearing as a sideman on two more Grant Green albums, Street of Dreams and / Want to Hold Your Hand. Then, in November 1965, Larry Young's post-Smith style exploded on Unity, featuring Joe Henderson on tenor, Woody Shaw on trum pet and Flvin Jones on drums. It was the album that would change the sound and attitude of jazz

organ for all time, and inspire a string of follow- up albums that would clinch Young's place in jazz history as the most influential jazz organist of his generation—and the next. The Complete Blue Note Recordings of

Larry Young, a nine-LP/six-Cl) set, includes Larry Young's total output for Blue Note. In addition to three albums as a sideman with Grant Green, Young recorded six albums under his own name, featuring such '60s greats as James Spaulding, Lee Morgan, George Benson and Eddie Gladden. The booklet includes a biography by Michael Cuscuna and many previously unpub lished session photographs by Francis Wolff.

" .the release of The Complete Blue Note

Recordings of Larry Young can only help draw more attention to this daring musician. Young took jazz organ to places Jimmy Smith feared to tread. Rediscovering Young can be a revelation." Steve Futterman, Rolling Stone

"Aside from taking the instrument another step into the world of Coltrane, Young had an uncommon sense of his instrument in terms of orchestration and ensemble. Throughout the Mosaic box, Young revels in ensemble give- and-take." JON Garei.ICK, The Boston Phoenix
