Sonny Clark is one of the long list of fine jazz musicians who died too young. He died at age 31. This album from 1957 excellently captures what was the definition of jazz at that time, and this became one of the best jazz albums of all time. Sonny Clark’s playing on this album has the sound of beautiful perfection, and (along with the great work of Paul Chambers on bass and ‘Philly’ Joe Jones on drums) the playing really swings. Sonny shines on “Tadd’s Delight” and “I Didn’t Know What Time It Was” with the crisp support from Chambers and ‘Philly’ Joe. He takes on the challenge of ‘Be-bop’, a very difficult tune, and pulls it off with his typical Sonny Clark touch.
