Elmo Hope Ensemble "Sounds From Rikers Island" 1963




This LP from 1963 (recorded at Rikers Island, New York) is an extraordinaary jazz album, it was assembled by composers Sid Frey, Elmo Hope and Walt Dickerson. With legendary musicians Philly Joe Jones, Lawrence Jackson, John Gilmore etc, Elmo Hope made one of the coolest bop-jazz from the first half of the 60s. 

Groovy!
