The Jack Wilson Quartet Featuring Roy Ayers - The Jack Wilson Quartet LPSowing Records (Italy)
Sowing Records present a reissue of Jack Wilson's debut album as a bandleader, originally released in 1963 for Atlantic label. Features a young Roy Ayers on vibraphone, bassist Al McKibbons and drummer Nick Martinis. Jack Wilson was a fine and often underrated pianist and composer who played with many great names such as Gene Ammons, Jacki Mclean, Esther Phillips, Lou Rawls, Johnny Griffin, Ertha Kitt, Lambert Hendricks & Ross, Antonio Carlos Jobim. This is a lively studio session opening up with a beautiful rendition of Jobim's classic "Corcovado" and followed by Wilson's five originals. A great debut album full of warm, sophisticated and yet highly dynamic jazz vibes. Clear vinyl; edition of 300.
