Oh yeah, what a powerhouse he was! Now this story may be apocryphal but it's said that when he and Bird played together in Jay McShann's band, Jimmy Forrest — a fiercely competitive player on the bandstand — used to get the most applause. One of his most interesting albums is Soul Battle where he's playing with Oliver Nelson and King Curtis. Here are two tunes from that disc, Anacruses and Soul Street.
