Sam Most Sextet • Sam Most Sextet

One of the first great jazz flutists, a cool-toned tenor, and a fine (if infrequent) clarinetist, Sam Most was the younger brother of clarinetist Abe Most. He picked up early experience playing with the orchestras of Tommy Dorsey (1948), Boyd Raeburn, and Don Redman. By the time he led his first session (1953), Most was a brilliant flutist (among the first to sing through his flute) and he briefly had the jazz field to himself. Most recorded fine sessions for Prestige, Debut (reissued on Xanadu), Vanguard, and Bethlehem during 1953-1958, doubling on clarinet. He also worked in different settings with Chris Connor, Paul Quinichette, and Teddy Wilson. After playing with Buddy Rich's Orchestra (1959-1961), he moved to Los Angeles and became a studio musician. Sam Most worked with Red Norvo and Louie Bellson, gained some new prominence with his Xanadu recordings of 1976-1979, and became a local fixture in Los Angeles, sometimes playing in clubs with his brother. Most died of cancer in June 2013; he was 82 years old.


Uno de los primeros grandes flautistas de jazz, un tenor de tono fresco y un clarinetista fino (aunque poco frecuente), Sam Most fue el hermano menor del clarinetista Abe Most. Adquirió experiencia temprana tocando con las orquestas de Tommy Dorsey (1948), Boyd Raeburn y Don Redman. Cuando dirigió su primera sesión (1953), Most era un flautista brillante (uno de los primeros en cantar a través de su flauta) y por poco tiempo tuvo el campo del jazz para él solo. La mayoría de las sesiones finas grabadas para Prestige, Debut (reeditado en Xanadu), Vanguard y Bethlehem durante 1953-1958, doblando en clarinete. También trabajó en diferentes escenarios con Chris Connor, Paul Quinichette y Teddy Wilson. Después de tocar con la orquesta de Buddy Rich (1959-1961), se mudó a Los Ángeles y se convirtió en músico de estudio. Sam Most trabajó con Red Norvo y Louie Bellson, ganó algo de prominencia con sus grabaciones de Xanadu de 1976-1979, y se convirtió en un partido local en Los Ángeles, a veces tocando en clubes con su hermano. La mayoría murió de cáncer en junio de 2013; tenía 82 años.
