Cal Massey - Blues To Coltrane VINYL LP 9029

Re-mastering by: Ray Staff at Air Mastering, Lyndhurst Hall, London

Massey paid heavy dues for his adventurous music and ideology, as did many of his contemporaries. According to his widow, an altercation with an executive at Blue Note Records resulted in his being blacklisted (or, as Fred Ho put it, “whitelist-ed”) from major recording companies. As a result, only one album was recorded under his name, Blues to Coltrane (Candid, recorded 1961, released 1987). 

The opening track is truly a Blues to Coltrane; it has beautiful and restrained trumpet from Cal for five choruses, showing that his understanding of the blues format was complete, some outstanding Coltrane-like tenor from Hugh Brodie, the simply gorgeous sound of Julius Watkin's French horn and Patti Brown's Monk-like piano.
