If we had to name ten best sax players in the history of jazz Illinois Jacquet would be on many lists. He is an extraordinary leader able to get going and take his fellow musicians with him. These recordings from the exceptional 1978 Nice jazz Festival made on the 8th, 10th, 11th and 15th of July are a complete demonstration of what this musician could play. Here contained are impressive exchanges between Jacquet and Eddie Davis. The rest of the personnel on the dates just make the album better and better. Roland Hanna, Major Holley, Hank Jones, George Duvivier, Pee Wee Erwin, Dick Hyman, Pierre Michelot and Oliver Jackson among others…
