The Modern Touch

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Benny Golson's second album as a leader reissued on CD in the OJC series is a solid hard bop date featuring the tenorman in a quintet with trumpeter Kenny Dorham, pianist Wynton Kelly, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Max Roach. The all-star group performs three Golson originals none of which really caught on, a pair of Gigi Gryce tunes best known is "Hymn to the Orient" and the standard "Namely You." Excellent playing on an above-average set that defines the modern mainstream of 1957 jazz.
