Jack Wilson Quartet Featuring Roy Ayers – The Jack Wilson Quartet [LP]
This is Jack Wilson’s debut album as a bandleader, originally released in 1963 for Atlantic label, featuring a young Roy Ayers on vibraphone, bassist Al McKibbons and drummer Nick Martinis. Jack Wilson was a fine and often underrated pianist and composer who played with many great names such as Gene Ammons, Jacki Mclean, Esther Phillips, Lou Rawls, Johnny Griffin, Ertha Kitt, Lambert Hendricks & Ross, Antonio Carlos Jobim… This is a lively studio session opening up with a beautiful rendition of Jobim’s classic “Corcovado” and followed by WIlson’s five originals. A great debut album full of warm, sophisticated and yet highly dynamic Jazz vibes. Limited edition coloured vinyl.
