The last of the three 1958 recordings made by jazz musicians John Coltrane and Wilbur Harden, TANGANYIKA STRUT is Harden's last album as a leader. "Whether you call it "Far Out" or "Near In" or "Funky" or "Mainstream Modern" or "Beat" . . . this is the sound! 4 extended virtuose tracks by a group of outstanding representatives of everything that is happening new on the modern jazz scene! In the kind of odd geography that occasionally plays in important part in the history of jazzmen *i.e. New Orleans, Kansas City, Chicago( this group is dominated by the young lions from Detroit, Michigan . . . breeding place for much of today's important young modern jazz element."From the original liner notes by H. Alan SteinNumbered first press of 500 copies.
