The Jazz Record Art Collective is proud to present the Michael Benning Sextet performing Sam Jones' "Something in Common", released in 1977.
“In the 1970s, Jones' recordings as a leader were quite consistent, and Something in Common is a rewarding example of the type of solid, hard-swinging bop and post-bop that people expected from him. The only Jones piece that the sextet embraces is "Seven Minds"; other selections were written by Slide Hampton ("Every Man Is a King"), Cedar Walton ("Something in Common" and the better known "Bolivia"), and Blue Mitchell ("Blue Silver"). -Alex Henderson
