Kenny Drew Quartet - Talkin' & Walkin'

This lp from 1955 was originally released on the Pacific Jazz imprint, and includes several prominent musicians from their roster at the time. Although from what i understand, at the time of this recording they were actually Drew's working quartet.

Instead of being just a straight ahead post bop date, it is fun to hear them stretch out a bit while the sax seems to being looking backwards with some serious bebop chops.

Im pretty sure this would happen to be another record I tracked down in the Chicago library system. Then I promptly transferred it to cassette and then finally moved to disc some years ago.
