    Ahhhh, Clifford Jordan. You might also like the "Mosiac" CD. Clifford with Kenny Dorham, Sonny Red, Tommy Flanagan, Cedar Walton, Wilbur Ware, "Tootie" Heath and Elvin Jones. Good stuff. Originally recorded in February and June of 1961 and released as " Starting Time" and "A Story Tale: Clifford Jordan and Sonny Red".

    I got a chance to hang & play with alto player, John Jenkins, at the old Augies, back in the early 90s, a few years before he passed away. He was a super nice guy. Always happy to be up there, playing.

    After the early 1960's, he sort of got lost in the shuffle & stopped playing music in public, for quite a while. Sometime in the 80's, Harold Mabern ran into him at an OTB (Off Track Betting--now they are all gone, btw) & convinced him to get out & start playing again, which he did, until his death, in 1993 (I think it was 93, maybe 94)

    He had a great style, much in the Bird tradition, like a Sonny Red

    Jackie McLean was one of his inspirations and Jenkins recorded with McLean in the 50s.

    I though I had recalled Jenkins playing in Chicago in the early 1990s. I didn't hear him but this article confirms that he played at the Jazz Showcase in 1992.

    Yeah, this is great. I really love the "Jenkins, Jordan, and Timmons" album from 1957. A severely underrated player. And man...Clifford Jordan never disappoints.

    I really like that date they (Sonny Red and John Jenkins)did with Paul Quinichette "On the Sonny Side" .
