The Sonny Criss Orchestra - Sonny's Dream (Birth Of The New Cool) (Prestige 1968)

Thanks for the Sonny Criss! Wonderful, varied, and unconventional use of the orchestra, avoiding those corny charts that take the edge off good jazz.

Also, thanks for NOT using Rapidshare! ZShare works great for me.

For Sonny Criss this was an unusual date. The altoist is backed for the set by a nonet arranged by the great Los Angeles-legend Horace Tapscott. The arrangements are challenging but complementary to Criss's style and he is top form on the six Tapscott originals. The CD reissue includes two additional alternate takes and is highly recommended for both Criss's playing and Tapscott's writing.
