TheYoungBloodsCover

This is a classic album featuring Donald Byrd(trumpet) and Phil Woods (Alto Sax), along with Al Haig (Piano), Teddy Kotick (Bass) and Charlie Persip (Drums). It was recorded in 1956, so that would make Byrd 24, Woods 25, Kotick 28, Persip 27 and Al Haig as the older statesman at the age of 34. Legitimate enough to be named “The Young Bloods” and great enough to be considered a classic Hard Bop album. A must have, the back cover of album offers the best description, enjoy!
