Sonny Clark’s ‘Cool Struttin’ is considered a genre defining album. In the realms of Blue Note it is the archetypal blowing session. ‘Blue Minor’ and ‘Cool Struttin’ are flowing Bop grooves that Sonny Clark plays to perfection. Jackie McLean and Art Farmer provide a warm and soulful front horn section. ‘Sippin At Bells’ sustains the pace propelled by the powerful yet subtle drums of Philly Joe Jones. The incomparable Paul Chambers is sublime in the bass chair. ‘Cool Struttin’ is Sonny Clark’s strongest album and one of Blue Note’s iconic sets.
