This month we continue our Facebook livestream performances with the Shultz/McCullough Quartet performing Larry Young's “Unity”, released in 1966. The evening will also feature a live art showcase by John Ross Wilson!
"Recorded in 1965, The title was chosen by Young because "although everybody on the date was very much an individualist, they were all in the same frame of mood. It was evident from the start that everything was fitting together." The album was Young's second for Blue Note, following on from Into Somethin'....Scott Yanow states that Unity "is considered Larry Young's finest recording." Billboard Magazine called the album "a sureshot for jazz fans". The Penguin Guide to Jazz awarded it a rare crown and four-star rating, describing it as "Quite simply a masterpiece." Also, saxophonist Michael Brecker referred to the album as a favorite of his."
