This memorable pairing of trumpeter Benny Bailey’s Big Brass and altoist Phil Woods’ Rights of Swing unites two albums which illustrate the virtues and the possibilities of the hard bop idiom. Made within months of each other at the start of the 1960s, they share largely the same brilliant players, but use them somewhat differently to achieve outstanding results. For Big Brass Bailey had a blowing septet that included Woods, pianist Tommy Flanagan and French hornist Julius Watkins, and a programme mostly of originals, including pieces by Quincy Jones and Oliver Nelson. Simple arrangements gave the soloists a chance to shine and they took it, with Bailey, Woods, Flanagan and Watkins outstanding on the blues “Hard Sock Dance” and “Maud’s Mood” (with Woods on bass clarinet), and on “Tipsy” and “Please Say Yes” in particular.
