Kenny Cox Introducing Kenny Cox and The Contemporary Jazz Quintet Limited Vinyl LP

Overview:

Recorded in 1968, Introducing Kenny Cox and The Contemporary Jazz Quintet was the debut album by this under-recognized Detroit band led by pianist Kenny Cox which featured trumpeter Charles Moore, tenor saxophonist Leon Henderson, bassist Ron Brooks, and drummer Danny Spencer. The band’s brand of post-bop was certainly influenced by the Miles Davis Quintet, but exhibited its own unique sensibilities on memorable originals like “Mystique,” “Trance Dance,” and David Durrah’s beautiful piece “You”.

Featured Tracks:

1. Mystique (SIDE A)

2. You (SIDE A)

3. Trance Dance (SIDE A)

4. Eclipse (SIDE A)

5. Number Four (SIDE B)

6. Diahnn (SIDE B)
