Blue Mitchell was always a consistent, lyrical, and pleasing trumpeter. Although not as significant during On The Beach - John Clifford White - Romper Stomper (Original Soundtrack) s as Lee Morgan and Freddie Hubbard much less Dizzy Gillespie and Miles DavisMitchell had his own appealing sound and was a major asset on many modern mainstream dates.
Three albums are by his quintet, which included tenor saxophonist Junior Cook and usually the young pianist Chick Corea and was formed shortly after he left Horace Silverand the three others are with larger groups, two of which have arrangements by Duke Pearson. There are just two previously unreleased cuts both alternate takesbut most of the sets have been somewhat rare for years, and taken as a whole, the swinging hard bop and boogaloo performances are Blue Mitchell 's finest recordings as a leader.
