1969 Blue & White Liberty Label Stereo Original. LP Appears Glossy, Unplayed. Van Gelder Machine Stamped In Dead Wax. Features James Spaulding, Woody Shaw, Kenny Barron, Reggie Workman & Joe Chambers. “This Release Is A Bit Of A Mystery, Because This Sole Date As A Leader By Tyrone Washington Seems To Mark His Final Appearance On Record (Following Two Sessions As A Sideman). His Name Doesn't Show Up In Jazz Encyclopedias, So One Wonders If He Died Prematurely Or Quit Music For Some Other Reason. Only 23 At The Time Of The Recording, The Tenor Saxophonist Composed Six Originals And Is Joined By Other Promising Young Lions Who Went Onto Great Careers (Pianist Kenny Barron And Trumpeter Woody Shaw), Along With Alto Saxophonist James Spaulding, Bassist Reggie Workman, And Drummer Joe Chambers. Washington Shows The Influence Of John Coltrane During His Rapid-Fire Runs, While His Playing During His More Straight-Ahead Works Proves To Be More Memorable. The Opener, "Natural Essence," Is An Interesting Alchemy Of Blues, Funk, And Hard Bop. "Yearning For Love" Is An Emotional Piece With Spirited Interaction Between The Three Horns In Places. Fans Of Hard Bop May Well Want To Investigate The Only LP By This Mysterious Tenor Saxophonist.” Ken Dryden, All Music Guide. Note: Contrary To Te All Music Guide Assertion, Tyrone Washington Also Released "Roots" On The Perception Label In 1973 And "Do Right" On The Blue Labor Label In 1974.
