Phil Woods Gene Quill Quintet – Phil & Quill With Prestige

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


“Altoists Phil Woods and Gene Quill always made for a mutually inspiring team. Both of the similar-sounding musicians were competitive, influenced by (but not imitative of) Charlie Parker, and really knew bebop. This LP features the two altoists in top form on six of Woods’ obscure originals, plus “Airegin” and “Solar.” The rhythm section (pianist George Syran, bassist Teddy Kotick, and drummer Nick Stabulas) is tasteful and quietly supportive.” – Scott Yanow/AllMusic.
