This wonderful album is a prelude to the more famous "The Blues and The Abstract Truth" by Oliver Nelson. This album recorded 10 months before "The Blues...." is definitive Nelson and very nearly captures the brilliance of the more famous album. "Screamin' The Blues" features six great compositions by Nelson and features the leader on tenor and alto saxophones. Like all Nelson dates, this band assembled only for the record session sounds like a working band. With Nelson is the iconic and adventurous Eric Dolphy on alto saxophone and bass clarinet. The powerhouse trumpet of Richard Williams and the elegant piano work of Richard Wyands is on tap.. George Duvivier is on bass and he works hand in glove with "Mr. Snap-Crackle" aka Roy Haynes on drums.. Truly a fine definitive recording by one of the great Jazz Masters: Oliver Edward Nelson.
