Cover of: Lincoln, Abbey - Straight Ahead
Straight Ahead
Down At Dawn | LP | 16 €

Back in stock! Abbey Lincoln, often remembered for her seminal work with Max Roach, was a powerful performer and indeed one of the greatest Jazz voices of all time. 'Straight Ahead' stands as one her best albums. Lincoln is matched here by a ultra-stellar line up including Jazz masters such as Booker Little - trumpet, Julian Priester - trombone Eric Dolphy - alto saxophone, bass clarinet, flute, Walter Benton and Coleman Hawkins - tenor saxophone, Mal Waldron - piano, Art Davis - bass, Max Roach - drums, Roger Sanders and Robert Whitley - congas. 'Straight Ahead' is the perfect combination between Lincoln 's strong 'Afro-Blue' tone singing, conscious lyrics and angular modern Jazz arrangements. Recorded in New York in a one-off studio session held on February 22, 1961 and released by Candid Records in the same year, the album includes highlights such as Oscar Brown jr's 'When Malindy Sings', Thelonious Monk's 'Blue Monk', Billie Holiday and Mal Waldron's 'Left Alone' and 'African Lady' a Randy Weston composition based on lyrics by the great writer Langston Hughes.
