Roy Hargrove - The Collected



The Collected es una recopilación del sello RCA Victor de los primeros discos de Roy Hargrove, e incluye un personal fantástico que reúne a varios de los "young lions" surgidos a principios de los noventa: el propio Hargrove, Antonio Hart (en gran forma), Christian McBride, Marc Cary y Stephen Scott; junto a intérpretes de notable trayectoria: Billy Higgins, Al Foster y Gary Bartz. Se distinguen la tremenda versión de Night Watch, de Kenny Dorham, con un estupendamente redondito solo de Hart, y Milestones, de Miles Davis, con uno también muy bonito, cortesía de Marc Cary. ***1/2
