desertblues Posted June 30, 2004 Report Share Posted June 30, 2004 Picked up "Terminal 1" yesterday (on Concord): Benny Golson leads a quintet with Eddie Henderson-tp/fl, Mike Ledonne-p, Buster Williams-b & Carl Allen-d. I have not seen the movie, but Golson is in it & this disc has the title tune (?) and "Killer Joe" which he apparently plays in it. At age 75 Benny's playing is a bit more laid back than it was back in the day, but he sounds good and I am enjoying this one more than most of the recent releases I've heard. Eddie Henderson (mostly muted and in his Miles bag) almost steals the show-I have not heard him sound better! For me the highlight is a 10-minute version of "In Your Own Sweet Way", but there are no duds on this one, IMHO (also a great version of "Cherry"). My kind of bop (and I can't wait for the Jazztet Mosaic)! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
