Milt Jackson - Statements & Jazz 'n' Samba

This set combines two of vibraphonist Milt Jackson's early-'60s LPs for Impulse! Records, 1962’s Statements, which finds Jackson in fine form playing with pianist Hank Jones, bassist Paul Chambers, and drummer Connie Kay, and 1964’s odd Jazz ‘n’ Samba, which features Jackson on one side playing with pianist Tommy Flanagan, tenor saxophonist Jimmy Heath, bassist Richard Davis, and Kay again on drums, while the second side finds Jackson minus pianist Flanagan but adds two guitarists, Barry Galbraith and Howard Collins, and vocalists Lilian Clark and Joe E. Ross. The combination of the two LPs here isn’t exactly seamless, but Jackson is in fine form throughout, which hardly comes as a surprise.
