Phil Woods - The Rights of Swing
[CCD 79016]


Phil Woods - The Rights of Swing
Rights of Swing is Phil Wood's first large scale composition and this performance represents a striking growth in Woods as a player as well as a writer.

Phil Woods was one of the very few altoists who much more than a shadow of Charlie Parker. Obviously indebted to Parker - as are all modern jazzman - Woods, however was very much is own man from the beginning of his recorded work for Prestige and other labels. His Rights of Swing contains organic development, variety of moods and colours, clarity of lines and voicings. From his colleagues in the Quincy Jones band, Phil selected Benny Bailey, Sahib Shihab, Julius Watkins, Buddy Catlett and Curtis Fuller (except for the final section on which Willie Dennis played trombone). Added to the rhythm section were Osie Johnson and Tommy Flanagan.
