Gigi Gryce – The Rat Race Blues (1960)

Titletrack on the album The Rat Race Blues by Gigi Gryce Featuring Richard Williams, recorded June 7th 1960. The next to last album before Gigi Gryce permanently dropped out of jazz.

The group swings its way through two of Gryce’s lesser-known originals and three then-recent obscurities. Interesting and generally fresh straight-ahead jazz. [source]

Lineup: Gigi Gryce – Alto Saxophone / Richard Williams – Trumpet / Richard Wyands – Piano / Julian Euell – Bass / Mickey Roker – Drums
