Art Farmer had become a true jazz legend by the time he died on October 4, 1999, at the age of 71. A master of the trumpet and the flugelhorn, Farmer first gained fame with the celebrated Jazztet, a group he formed with saxophonist Benny Golson. Farmer and Tommy Flanagan had known each other since at least 1956, when they both participated on the album Oscar Pettiford Orchestra in Hi-Fi. This release presents Farmer’s outstanding original quartet LP Art in its entirety, featuring Tommy Flanagan on piano, Tommy Williams on bass, and Albert “Tootie” Heath on drums.
New York, September 21-23, 1960.
