Info zu Brass Bag (Analog Source-Remastered Edition)

A gem of an album – and one of the few rare sides cut by trumpeter Carmell Jones! The album features some hip early 60s LA soul jazz arrangements by Gerald Wilson – played by a group that features work by Jones, trombonists Tricky Lofton and Lou Blackburn, and pianist Frank Strazzeri. The small combo's backed by a larger "trombone choir" with 4 other players (including Wayne Henderson), but the record takes a straight hard solo approach – very much in the "sock" trombone style that you'd get from a record by Slide Hampton or Benny Green. Jones' trumpet wails over the top, adding in some nice tight punctuation to the session's grooves, and blowing hard and fast on a few fast tracks. Titles include "Celery Stalks At Midnight", "Bluer Than That", "Brass Bag", and a great take on "Mood Indigo"

Carmell Jones
(July 19, 1936 – November 7, 1996) was an American jazz trumpet player.

Jones was born in Kansas City, Kansas. He started piano lessons at age five, and trumpet lessons at age seven. His first professional work was with Kansas City greats Nathan Davis, Cleanhead Vinson and Frank Smith. He moved to California in 1960 and worked as a studio musician for several years, including in the orchestras for two movie soundtracks, 'The Seven Days In May' and 'The Manchurian Candidate', the latter starring Frank Sinatra. He released two albums as a leader for Pacific Jazz at this time, while recording as a sideman with Bud Shank, Onzy Matthews, Curtis Amy, Harold Land, and Gerald Wilson. He toured with Horace Silver in 1964-65, and was on Silver’s seminal 1965 Blue Note album Song for My Father. In 1965 he moved to Germany where he lived for 15 years, working with Paul Kuhn and the SFB Big Band (Sender Freies Berlin) from 1968 to 1980. There he worked with musicians such as Milo Pavlovic, Herb Geller, Leo Wright, Rudi Wilfer and Eugen Cicero. Jones returned to the US in 1980, working as a teacher and appearing at local clubs in Kansas City. He released one additional album as a leader in 1982 entitled “Carmell Jones Returns,” on the Revelation label. Jones died on November 7, 1996 in Kansas City at the age of 60.
