Reissue, recorded in 1956 and originally issued in early 1957 by Prestige Records. Tenor Conclave displays an amazing all-star line-up based on four of the greatest tenor sax voices of the time -- Al Cohn, John Coltrane, Hank Mobley, and Zoot Sims -- along with a top-class rhythm section featuring Red Garland on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. The result shouldn't be seen as just a great blowing session, in fact Tenor Conclave perfectly stands as a document of the state of the art of tenor saxophone at the end of the '50s. Four young distinctive personalities teaming up on a great album full of hard swinging music. Highlights include a couple of blues-infected Mobley's originals and a highly sophisticated rendition of Irving Berlin's "How Deep Is The Ocean". Clear vinyl.
