The Thing To Do

“The Thing To Do”   Blue Mitchell with Junior Cook, Chick Corea, Gene Taylor and Al Foster   Blue Note Records 4178     (1964) What a beautiful cover!   Classic Blue Note aesthetic.   The running type.   The cropping, the elegant light and a monochromatic blue help capture the expression of the music in Mitchell’s taut hands.   When Horace Silver disbanded his quintet of six years in 1964, Blue Mitchell, Junior Cook and Gene Taylor decided to stay together and form the nucleus of the Blue Mitchell Quintet.   The band took shape that summer with newcomers Chick Corea (only his second recording and first Blue Note session) and Al Foster. Mitchell learned well from his former employer – check the groove on the title track!
