Sam Most - Musically Yours

One of the loosest, most relaxed albums ever from flute man Sam Most cut with a cool quartet that also features Bob Dorough on piano, Bill Crow on bass, and Joe Morello on drums ! The inventive touches of all the rhythm players are really felt strongly creating these modern moments that really have Sam stretching out on his instrument, and moving it way past any cliches of a few years before. Most handles flute on almost all the tracks, but also throws in some great clarinet as well with archly-crafted solos that really swing, but with kind of an arch modernist tone in the manner of some of Jimmy Giuffre's best rhythm-bound work of the 50s. Titles include "Obvious Conclusion", "Stella By Starlight", "Two For Three", and "House Of Bread Blues".
