Screamin' the Blues!

I have been chided by some folks because I haven't been posting on my blogs regularly--this is due to being extremely busy with a bunch of projects.'s something I hope you will enjoy.

Below is an image that was sent to me by a jazz fan of my father's (trumpet player Richard Williams--1931-1985). It was taken in the early 1960s, and pictures the personnel on an album by Oliver Nelson (at right) titled Screamin' the Blues. Here are the musicians, left to right: Oliver Nelson (tenor and alto sax); Richard Wyands--he also played on my father's classic New Horn in Town (piano); Roy Haynes (drums); Eric Dolphy (bass clarinet and alto sax); Richard Williams (trumpet); George Duvivier (bass).
