One of the saxophone legends, Lucky Thompson's style was nurtured in the Swing Era and molded by the innovations of bebop. His pulling-together of the various righteous elements from different persuasions and directions was honed to a personal sharpness in his brilliant series of recordings for Prestige, in which he revealed a talent on the soprano saxophone as well as the tenor. Long out of print, Lucky Strikes is doubly welcome because Thompson has been off the scene since the mid-1970s.

with Hank Jones, Richard Davis, Connie Kay
