Like Ike Quebec, Leo Parker was considered washed up by the time he signed to Blue Note in 1961, also like Quebec, Parker's comeback yielded a couple of fantastic standard hard bop records, and even more tragic, like Quebec, Leo Parker died soon after. Of the two albums made for Blue Note, I definitely prefer Rollin' With Leo, it is a bawdy, brassy album full of swagger and swing. Pimp Jazz.

This rules, Aesop. I put this on repeat last night while making dinner and then drinking some beers with my lady. Great soundtrack for a chill evening. Love all the jazz posts you do.
