Booker Little!!

Some album info from
Digitally remastered two-fer features Booker Little's complete recorded discography as a leader with tenor saxophone virtuoso George Coleman. The 1958 album Booker Little 4 & Max Roach and 1961 release Booker Little and Friend mark the trumpeter's recording debut as a leader and his final album respectively. It is interesting to note Booker Little's evolution as both a composer and improviser by comparing his first album with his last. The exquisite compositions 'Victory And Sorrow', 'Looking Ahead' and 'Matilde' show just how far the young trumpeter had grown as a writer. Lone Hill Jazz. 

This guy was incredibly talented and unfortunately died too young. HERE is more on the man. Well, enjoy.
