Art and Perception
Art Farmer (tp), Tommy Flanagan (p), Tommy Williams (b), Albert Heath (d) // Art Farmer (tp), Harold Mabern (p), Tommy Williams (b), Roy McCurdy (d)
Two very special Art Farmer quartet dates from the 1960s with a stellar cast of sidemen. Of the albums here, Art Farmer said, "I wanted to do a very intimate session. I wanted it to sound as if I were just sitting and talking to someone with the horn, talking to just one person. The feeling was to be as if the horn were in the room, right next to the listener." We think Art Famer sounds amazing on these two LPs and you will too.
