I hate to jinx 2007, but the Roy Hargrove show at the Folly tomorrow could be the best show of the year. So I'll refrain from going on. In the meantime, here's a video of a 19-year-old Hargrove standing toe-to-toe with some giants.
Cool Struttin' (composed and arranged by Son Sickler), recorded in Japan 1988.
Frontline: RH, Don Sickler, Bobby Watson, Billy Pierce, Frank Lacy. Rhythm: Mulgrew Miller, Robert Hurst, Kenny Washington.
