Oliver Nelson | The Blues and the Abstract Truth

Oliver Nelson was a talented saxophonist – in 1961 he recorded this memorable record. What could go wrong, having in mind their partners, each one of them being part of the legend? Even so he had to push himself, he had to find the force and inventiveness to stand as an equal with his fellow musicians. The outcome was a stone classic modern jazz blues and roots album.
