Wardell Gray


Notes

In the period of swing to bop, a lot of interesting music was happening, and just in listening to a lot of the jazz from the late forties and early fifties, you can hear something very special in the warmly insistent saxophone playing of Wardell Gray. He sounds energetic and effortless, beautiful and free. Benny Goodman said "if Wardell Gray plays bop, it's great, because he's wonderful," and he is.
