This is the tightest performance of Central Park North I've heard. Thad Jones' arrangements actually require this precision to get how well he said what he was trying to say. Jerome Richardson's solo is most imaginative and at the same time scholarly.

Ah, the one and only, Jerome Richardson on soprano sax lead in the stellar sax section gives it the snap, crackle and pop that was the trademark of this band back then. This was New York’s finest brought together by Hank and Mel. The band took the world by storm then and it still is as fresh as a daisy today!
Thanks for posting!!

Have been playing 10 days in a big band course in 1979, directed by the great Thad Jones (1923 - 1986); this was an exciting experience, which I never shall  forget. A very inspiring man. Sadly that he's is no more around.

Richard Davis' solution to the dreaded bass solo. Or he was just trying to define the groove. Actually I love Davis's daring solo on Screamin' Blues Night Train when he goes outside. Maybe he just likes to add an element of surprise whenever he can. The life of the party, so to speak.

Thad Jones, il faut l'avoir vu et entendu chez Max au Vanguard, "animait", càd donnait une âme au Big Band qu'il codirigeait avec Mel Lewis. Ceci explique cela ...

Pepper Adams is cooking. Gotta love the nerdy profile, fits his sophisticated style. And Sir Roland Hanna. He defines so much of what this band is.
