Artist: Charles / Sulieman / Jenkins / Waldron
Product Type: VINYL LP
Down At Dawn presents a reissue of Coolin', originally released in 1959. An obscure and excellent 1957 session produced by master Rudy Van Gelder and originally released on Prestige Records. A tight sextet with a distinctive sound run by vibraphonist Teddy Charles, featuring great pianist Mal Waldron and some fine and often underrated musicians, such as Idrees Sulieman on trumpet, John Jenkins on alto saxophone, Addison Farmer on bass, and Jerry Segal on drums. The album consists of one standard and five originals, all based on complex melodies and hard swinging rhythms.
