Oliver Nelson

Oliver Edward Nelson (June 4, 1932 – October 28, 1975) was an American jazz saxophonist, clarinetist, arranger, composer, and bandleader. He is perhaps best remembered for his 1961 Impulse! album ''The Blues and the Abstract Truth'' (1960), often regarded as being among the most significant recordings of its era. The centerpiece of the album is the definitive version of Nelson's composition, "Stolen Moments". Other important recordings from the early 1960s are ''More Blues and the Abstract Truth'' and ''Sound Pieces'', both also on Impulse!. Provided by Wikipedia
