Leapin & Lopin
Limited vinyl LP repressing of this essential jazz album, Leapin' And Lopin' is part of the Blue Note 75 anniversary LP reissue campaign. Recorded in 1961 and released in 1962, this was pianist Sonny Clark's last album as a leader. Michael Nastos writes that "Top to bottom Leapin' and Lopin' is a definitive recording for Clark, and really for all time in the mainstream jazz idiom." All About Jazz stated "Although pianist Sonny Clark had documented much fine music up to this point, one of his final recordings before an untimely death, everything seemed to solidify with this 1961 ringer."
