Review Text Of the many mid-'50s Prestige jam sessions, Outskirts of Town is probably one of the more successful. If nothing else, it features a handful of players who did not record together on a regular basis. The all-star lineup featured, among others, Art Farmer, Idrees Sulieman, Jerome Richardson, Pepper Adams, Ray Bryant, Tiny Grimes, and Osie Johnson. Richardson and tenor man Jimmy Forrest are particularly exciting and take the set's opener, "I'm Gonna Move to the Outskirts of Town," to unexpected heights, given the tune's mellow opening bars. As one might guess, uptempo and midtempo blues numbers dominate the program here, and the accompaniment of the 11-piece ensemble lends many of these tunes a hot Midwestern Basie vibe. ~ Brandon Burke
