'Blue Soul' is from hard bop-into-the-spiritual trumpeter Charles Tolliver who has recorded a new album Connect and which will be released at the end of July. It was recorded at RAK Studios in London in late-2019. On the album Tolliver is with Jesse Davis on alto saxophone, Keith Brown on piano, Buster Williams on double bass, and Lenny White on drums with saxophonist Binker Golding guesting on a couple of tracks. Born in Florida in 1942 Tolliver played with Jackie Mclean and Max Roach in the 1960s and is revered for among other recordings Paper Man in 1968. With Stanley Cowell he founded Strata-East Records in 1971.
