Wardell Gray - The Wardell Gray Story album FLAC

Wardell Gray (February 13, 1921 – May 25, 1955) was an American jazz tenor saxophonist who straddled the swing and bebop periods. Wardell Gray was born in Oklahoma City, the youngest of four children. His early childhood years were spent in Oklahoma, before moving with his family to Detroit in 1929. In early 1935, Gray began attending Northeastern High School, and then transferred to Cass Technical High School, which is noted for having Donald Byrd, Lucky Thompson and Al McKibbon as alumni

Gray, though, had a sound that explicitly bridged bebop and the lazier, patiently poetic swing of Lester Young. This four-disc set pulls together most of the Gray material worth preserving, including a fine 1946 encounter between Gray (who was preoccupied with Young at the time) and the pianistically ingenious but overlooked Dodo Marmarosa. There is also an excellent 1949 group with a young Roy Haynes that produced Twisted, a boppish blues featuring an inspired solo by Gray that was later famously taken up by Annie Ross and Joni Mitchell in vocal interpretations
