Complete Jazz Modes Sessions [Import]
(Spain - Import, 3PC)
Deluxe three CD box set that contains the complete recordings by the Jazz Modes, an experimental small Jazz formation fronted by Charlie Rouse on tenor sax and Julius Watkins on French horn, plus Gildo Mahones on piano. With slight personnel variations, this group recorded a total of five albums, most of which are now very hard to find. All of these LPs are included here in their entirety and in chronological order. A member of big bands, among them those of Billy Eckstine, Dizzy Gillespie, and Duke Ellington, Charlie Rouse is best remembered for his more than 10 years as a member of the Thelonious Monk Quartet.
