Description

Terms such as supergroup and all-stars may understate the stature of this imposing 1988 sextet. Frank Morgan, at the peak of his personal renaissance, meets two front-line players who had been at the forefront of jazz's new directions for two decades, a bass/drum team for the ages, and the period's brightest young pianist.

Beyond its individual name power, Reflections also verifies that Joe Henderson and Bobby Hutcherson played just as magnificently in years when listeners weren't paying attention, and that the bebop-rooted Morgan (who also recorded a Charlie Parker tribute album, Yardbird Suite, with this rhythm section) could function just as convincingly in the more contemporary realm of Mulgrew Miller's "Old Bowl, New Grits" and Hutcherson's "Starting Over." The session is filled with memorable contributions, from Morgan's chorus on the title ballad to a bonus-track "Caravan" with jaw-dropping drumming from Al Foster.

Personnel: Frank Morgan (alto saxophone), Joe Henderson (tenor saxophone), Bobby Hutcherson (vibraphone), Mulgrew Miller (piano), Ron Carter (bass), Al Foster (drums)
