12-PAGE BOOKLET

Although these recordings were originally issued under the leadership of Tadd Dameron (1917-1965) and Tommy Flanagan (1930-2001) - both important jazz figures in their own right - the main figure of both sessions is unarguably the mythical tenor sax player John Coltrane (1926-1967). While the connection may not be obvious, the two albums included here have something else in common other than Coltrane’s presence and a close recording date: both present small groups (a quartet and a sextet) organized by a talented pianist who presents his own compositions. If Tadd Dameron seems a less brilliant pianist than Flanagan, this is compensated by his genius as a composer and arranger. On the other hand, Tommy Flanagan’s compositions are a bit less sophisticated than Dameron’s, but he is without a doubt a much more accomplished interpreter. Trane’s magic shines throughout both albums in what could be described as his “middle stage” of musical development.
