Oliver Nelson
Afro American Sketches  

We are shipping again, but there is a large backlog, and a couple of other factors causing delays. You may order anything that’s in stock–if the page shows that it’s in stock that means we have it on the shelf, but we may not be able to ship it immediately. It may involve a delay of up to three weeks. If you want to check our current shipping times, use the email address that’s at the bottom of this page.

In each new series we at the Tape Project try to find one gem that is relatively unknown and underrated. This first album by Oliver Nelson as composer and big band leader was recorded in 1960.

It consists of a suite of seven pieces that pay tribute to the history of Afro Americans and features the talent of flutist Jerry Dodgion, trumpeter Joe Newman and Nelson himself on tenor and alto.
