When 26-year-old Carmell Jones left his native Kansas for California in August 1960, he made an immediate impact on the high-calibre West Coast jazz scene. Snapped up exclusively by Pacific Jazz, he recorded his first album as a leader, "The Remarkable Carmell Jones," the following June. Using much the same lineup as the celebrated Harold Land-Red Mitchell quintet, it was a stellar entrance for the young trumpeter, whose classy tone, ideas and commanding style recalled Clifford Brown. Land, on tenor, was another inspiration and they made a formidable pairing, but Brownie remained Jones s primary reference, amply demonstrated throughout his leader debut, particularly on his feature, Come Rain or Come Shine, and on Full Moon and Empty Arms. It was bop with a joyous, West Coast accent, grounded in Jones s lyrical assurance, Land s maturity and the solid virtues of pianist Frank Strazzeri, bassist Gary Peacock and drummer Leon Petties.
The second album, "Business Meetin'", used the same quintet, with Donald Dean in for Petties, and a nonet arranged by Gerald Wilson, including a saxophone section, which elicited an ideally simpatico response from Jones. Both these albums amply demonstrate why musicians were unanimous in their praise of this gifted young trumpeter and his sudden rise to national prominence.
