John Coltrane and Kenny Burrell first played together in 1951 as members of the Dizzy Gillespie band. From 1956 to 1958 they would also participate on four albums together: Paul Chambers' Whims of Chambers, Interplay for 2 trumpets and 2 tenors, Kenny Burrell & John Coltrane, on which they were co-leaders, and the album presented here, The Cats. Originally issued under Tommy Flanagan's name, The Cats features an outstanding sextet in long performances that leave room for all of the players to solo without restrictions. + 1 BONUS TRACK AllMusic" Trane connected with pianist Tommy Flanagan, subsequently headed for the East Coast, and recorded this seminal hard bop album. In town were fellow Detroiters – drummer Louis Hayes, bassist Doug Watkins, and guitarist Kenny Burrell, with the fine trumpeter from modern big bands Idrees Sulieman as the sixth wheel. From the opening number you realize something special is happening. The Cats is a must-buy for the ages."(Michael G.
