Many musicians on the ‘50s Chicago scene felt that Sandy Mosse (1929-1983) was among the most eloquent tenor men in jazz. But recognition and opportunity were lacking until, finally, in 1956 he signed with Argo Records. The first product of this association was “Chicago Scene”, featuring sessions where Mosse joined such Chicago luminaires as Ira Shulman and Eddie Baker. This reissue also includes “Relaxin’ with Mosse”, his only album as a leader, recorded in 1958. It gave him the chance to be heard with an accomplished young quartet that included pianist Junior Mance, and with a string section background. In both settings Mosse showed his considerable potential and forceful approach, and though he admired many musicians, one was his idol. “Al Cohn is the epitome of tenor players,” he said. - Fresh Sound Records
