The eminent Prof. Steve Jazzme, who sometimes comes through the chimney of the Bravo Mansion to offer some records from his impressive collection, has left this album in the comments box as a Christmas gift and suggested that we post it. Here it is, for the joy of all friends of Juju. Let us praise Prof. Jazzme for his generosity!
"The second of two CDs that greatly expand the original Three Blind Mice LP captures the all-star Jazz Messengers sextet of 1961-62 at two separate concerts. The five extended performances, which consist of four group originals (including "Mosaic" and "Ping Pong") and "It's Only a Paper Moon," include many strong solos from trumpeter Freddie Hubbard, trombonist Curtis Fuller, tenor saxophonist Wayne Shorter and pianist Cedar Walton, all future bandleaders. Highly recommended". Scott Yanow
