Milt Jackson Plenty, Plenty Soul on Limited Edition 180g Vinyl LP from ORG Music

Mastered from the Original Master Tapes by Bernie Grundman & Pressed at Pallas in Germany

Issued on Atlantic in 1957, Plenty, Plenty Soul is comprised of sophisticated soul/jazz material from two all-star NYC dates recorded in early-January of the same year led by Modern Jazz Quartet vibraphonist Milt 'Bags' Jackson who also contributes four of the album's seven numbers.

With wonderful arrangements by Quincy Jones - the first three selections were recorded in a nine-piece configuration with Cannonball Adderley (alto saxophone) at the forefront and additional support from Horace Silver (piano), Percy Heath (bass) and Art Blakey (drums) while the remaining four tracks were recorded in a sextet setting with Lucky Thompson (tenor saxophone), Horace Silver (piano), Oscar Pettiford (bass) and Connie Kay (drums).

"This is the sort of album which makes reviewing by the star system difficult. There should be some exceptional merit badge for this sort of things - five stars plus or too good to rate." - Ralph J. Gleason, Down Beat (1957)
