Larry Young
Unity
1965

Larry Young's exploratory sound has earned him comparisons to John Coltrane, which might seem strange since Young plays the organ. Thoughtful and dynamic, his solos are indeed impressive; but it's the subtle underpinning and space Young provides tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson and trumpeter Woody Shaw that really makes the album work. It helps to have a drummer as flexible as Elvin Jones, who alone accompanies Young on a stellar reading of "Monk's Dream."
