|IDREES SULIEMAN, PER GOLDSCHMIDT, HORACE PARLAN, MADS VINDING & BILLY HART GROOVIN’ Limited Vinyl LP
Repress of a classic SteepleChase LP from 1986 featuring pioneering bebop trumpeter Idrees Sulieman (1923-2002) alongside an impressive group that included pianist Horace Parlan and drummer Billy Hart.
Sulieman performed and recorded with the luminaries of jazz such as Thelonious Monk, Mary Lou Williams, Randy Weston, Teddy Charles, Gene Ammons a. o. in the '40s and '50s. He moved to Europe in the '60s and lived there (mainly in Denmark) for the following 25 years.
"With a highly individual way of inflecting his often surprising phrasing and a tone that is immediately recognisable, Sulieman's trumpet and flugelhorn has a personal stamp to it." - Jazz Forum
