Johnny Coles Quartet – The Warm Sound

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


“Trumpeter Johnny Coles, best-known for his association with Charles Mingus in 1964, made his recording debut as a leader on this Epic session which was reissued on CD in 1995 by Koch. A bop-based trumpeter with a lyrical sound of his own, Coles is showcased here with an excellent quartet (Kenny Drew or Randy Weston on piano, bassist Peck Morrison and drummer Charlie Persip). He is in top form on a pair of standards (including “If I Should Lose You”), his own blues “Room 3” and four Weston originals; the reissue adds an alternate take of “Hi-Fly” to the original program. A fine outing.” – Scott Yanow/AllMusic.
