I mentioned this a couple of times in other threads since I got it a week ago; I haven't taken it out of the car CD player since it went in, and listening again now while working - it's that good.
Turner made a few records with McGriff then joined Basie, but this is straight up bebop of a very high level. Ignore the discogs listing which says something about Basie alumni in the group; the rest of the group is Red Callender, Gerry Wiggins and Dennis Mackrel on drums. Wiggins is fine of course but Turner gets most of the solo space.
In a summer of some major "seemingly unknown recording" discoveries, this ranks at the top, impossible to choose between them. Does anyone else know this record?
If you're intrigued there are cheap copies at discogs, though I would recommend, while they last, seller CADNOR, the former Cadence North Country, which has new copies for $8.99 plus shipping. Mine had no warping due to shrink wrap and played perfectly.
