Although a four-LP Mosaic box set purportedly includes every recording led by the obscure but talented tenor saxophonist Tina Brooks, this 1994 CD has previously unreleased alternate takes of "True Blue" and "Good Old Soul" that Mosaic overlooked. Brooks is teamed with the young trumpeter Freddie Hubbard(on one of his earliest sessions), pianist Duke Jordan, bassist Sam Jones, and drummer Art Taylor for a set dominated by Brooks' originals. None of the themes may be all that memorable ("Nothing Ever Changes My Love for You" comes the closest), but the hard bop solos are consistently excellent.

    Hi, great blog, but a lot of MP3 rips are resampled from original 44.1 kHz to 48 kHz. Resampling degrade sound quality. Why doing resampling? Are these your rips? Thanks and I really appreciate your music selection. Marek

    Some of them are mine, but this is music that matters not rip's quality.
    If you want to go for quality you obviously go for CD's.

    At the moment I'a waiting for my copy of Universal Totem Orchestra, DUN and Serge Bringolf's albums
