Roy Hargrove Quintet ‎– With The Tenors Of Our Time

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


“Trumpeter Roy Hargrove has the opportunity of a lifetime on this recording, sharing separate songs with five great tenors: Johnny Griffin, Joe Henderson, Branford Marsalis, Joshua Redman, and Stanley Turrentine. Everyone fares well, including Hargrove’s group (Ron Blake on tenor and soprano, pianist Cyrus Chestnut, bassist Rodney Whitaker, and drummer Gregory Hutchinson). The young trumpeter (who is vying for Lee Morgan’s unoccupied chair) keeps up with the saxophonists on this generally relaxed affair; recommended for hard bop fans.” – Scott Yanow/AllMusic.
