Arranger and alto saxophonist Oliver Nelson’s Swiss Suite is recognised as his last major jazz work. His death four years later robbed jazz of one of its finest composers, while success writing for film and TV had kept him away from jazz in the intervening years. Nelson had risen to prominence with Blues And The Abstract Truth, one of the first crossover jazz albums of the 1960s, before becoming an in-demand arranger and the composer of themes for Ironside, Six Million Dollar Man and others. This album captures that performance. The aptly named title track, a showcase for lead saxophonists Gato Barbieri, Eddie Cleanhead Vinson and Nelson himself, was composed specifically for the event, which also featured reprisals of three of his favourite older pieces, including the celebrated ‘Stolen Moments’. This reissue marks the album’s first appearance on CD.

This is the discography for American jazz musician Oliver Nelson. A Dream Deferred (Flying Dutchman 1969-75 ) – Selections from Flying Dutchman albums + 2 previously unreleased tracks. Back Talk (Chess, 1964 ) with Lou Donaldson – Compilation of Argo & Cadet LPs Fantabulous and Rough House Blues. Images (Prestige 1961 ) with Eric Dolphy – Compilation of Prestige LPs Screamin' the Blues and Straight Ahead.

Oliver Nelson was born in St Louis on June 4th 1932, and came from a very musical family, with his sister a singer and pianist, and his elder brother a sax player with the Cootie Williams band. When Nelson was six he started to study piano and by the age of eleven was also studying saxophone and composition - he was a natural. By the late 1940s he was playing with many of the so called ‘Territory Bands’ around the St Louis area. And he still kept smiling. And smile Nelson does on the Flying Dutchman album cover of Swiss Suite because he knew he was good, and that only the best musicians wanted to play for him. Why shouldn’t he smile when he had one of the most exciting bands he’d ever put together for that live recording session in the Montreux Grand Casino, an event Bob Palmer describes brilliantly in his liner notes for the original LP.
