Clifford Jordan’s first date as a leader actually found him sharing a heated jam session with fellow tenor John Gilmore. Backed by pianist Horace Silver, bassist Curly Russell, and drummer Art Blakey, the two saxophonists square off mostly on obscurities (other than Gigi Gryce’s “Blue Lights” and “Billie’s Bounce”). This was one of Gilmore’s few sessions outside of Sun Ra’s orbit and, if anything, he slightly overshadows the cooler-toned Jordan. Recommended.
