I'v not heard that one but I have the other live one you posted earlier. The two studio albums that preceded the 70th birthday show are The Essence (part 1) and (part2). George Coleman plays on a few tracks on (part1) and both are really good imo. Another good live one is Chicago Revisited/Live At Joe Segal's Jazz Showcase on Telarc. No horns on that one, just his trio. Back in the late 80s/early 90s his lps were plentiful in used shops but that has dried up significantly like it has for many other artists. His run on Argo was near perfect imho.
I don't know. I have deep RESPECT for those who can rock organ pedals, and if well-recorded (and in well-engineered live performances) they can really get the job done.
I got to sneak in one cd before turning off the system for the day and heading out to Dad's. . . and all this organ talk made me choose this BURNER:
Charles Earland "Black Talk"
Charles Earland, Virgil Jones, Houston Person, Melvin Sparks, Idris Muhammed, Buddy Caldwell
Yes, Charles Earland! I failed to mention him in my organ re: post which I actually typed up last night but never hit the send button. It was late and my wifi stopped working and I chose not to stay up and wait for it to return.
WP Hank Jones - Bluesette (Black & Blue)
NP Elvin Jones - And Then Again Elvin Jones (Atlantic) plum/orange mono label
Chilling with Brian McBride - The Effective Disconnect (Kranky)
One of the members of Stars Of The Lid made this soundtrack to the documentary Vanishing Of The Bees.
Having this playing in the background through the day:
I have the LP set, but that's a lot of manual labor (10 sides!) so I'm going digital on this one.
Love ‘em both. There’s a music for every mood.
Wow, she’s got guts. Just what I know from being a member of this board for a little while, you don’t want for nuthin’. I’m a piker compared to you and your music collection but my GF & all my friends are too scared to gift me any music for fear I either have it already or will dislike it. Good on your wife!
“Organ Jazz is The People’s Music” - Pete Fallico
No place I’d rather be than in a room full of Organ Jazz People gettin’ taken to church by somebody kickin’ the ‘3.
Got this next one along with Cirrus, since the same seller had two Hutch albums I figured I’d kill two birds with one stone. I refer to this page on londjazzcollector about identifying Blue Note pressings by the labels and other traits, looks like this is the likely an original pressing.
Bobby Hutcherson - Total Eclipse (White & Blue label, Division of Liberty pressing)
Blue Mitchell - The Thing To Do (Music Matters 45)
Classic Records 200g Mono
It literally cooks.
This is a Chilean jazz band I recently discovered by chance. I love the sound and compositions, especially the second track "Atma" which happens to be the album's name...in case the youtube link doesn't work the name of the band is Bruno Riveros if you want to look it up, I'm sure most of jazz lovers won't be dissapointed
Peggy Lee - Black Coffee (Mono, SHM-CD, UCCU-5778)
Another vocal album that is outside of my wheelhouse. I was trying to think of what it was about the Julie London I listened to yesterday which was hanging me up a little, besides some of the song selections (e.g. “Camptown Races”, which, as a 10-year old taking guitar lessons, learning to read music from some Alfred’s guitar method, or something similar, and learning to play this tune, when what I really wanted to be doing was rocking out to some “Master of Puppets” or “Welcome to the Jungle”, has left me with somewhat skewed feelings about this tune), when my car stereo gave me the answer earlier today when I inserted the Peggy Lee for listening while about town. The car stereo listed the genre as “easy listening”, which I think hits on the vague feeling that was clouding my listening experience during the Julie London. I don’t have as much of that feeling while listening to this Peggy Lee; still, I do really enjoy both, I just think there may be a bit of a warmup period until I become acclimated completely.
She is one of the best and that’s a great record to boot. I’m running out now so no time but worth streaming most of her 50s and early 60s stuff.
You might want to check out another thread called obscure and neglected female singers of 30s to 60s ( or something like that)
Try Helen Merrill 50s records on mercury too
This is a deep hole you may fall into
WP Lee Morgan's Procrastinator (Blue Note) Music Matters 45 RPM Pressing
NP Sam Rivers - Fuschia Swing Song (Blue Note) Music Matters 45 RPM Pressing
It's so nice to hear that air under Tony's cymbals on Fuschia Swing Song. With Jaki Byard and Ron Carter, that's a dream team. Music Matters puts you in the studio.
A friend went to The Groove Yard in Oakland and bought a copy of the same and gave it to me as a birthday present. It was probably fifteen years ago or maybe more so wasn't the heroic effort it would be today. Still, glad he thought enough to get this one for me. It's very good but then I rate all of Bobby's Blue Note recordings. There's always something to recommend on his albums.
My DVD/CD of Stan Getz at Montreux 1972 arrived yesterday morning, the quartet features Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke & Tony Williams.
I've watched it 3 times already, it's absolutely phenomenal & the best colour footage of Tony Williams from this era by a long way.
The versions of Lush Life & La Fiesta are particular highlights.
Thinking about it now I wish I'd bought more Jamal and less Bill Evans. I don't wish to start a riot but I have nearly 50 albums of Bill's and I only play about half of them.
I was watching some Jamal on Yoochoob last night and that prompted me to dig out a few albums of his I hadn't listened to for quite a while. Agree about vinyl scarcity, I don't see too much of his stuff in the Tokyo bins.
Don Ellis - How Time Passes (1960) Candid Japanese 'Hi-Bit' series cd. TECW-20381
This seems a lot more accessible now than it seemed when I first listened to it 15 years ago. Which probably says something about me and not much about the music. 'Improvisational Suite' is nearly half an hour long but is worth sticking with. Jaki Byard, a young Ron Carter, the great Charlie Persip and Don Ellis showing what a fine orthodox player he was. Stockhausen was something of an inspiration for Ellis in the execution of this material, though it's not neccessary to be over-concerned with it's genesis in order to enjoy this music. If you are a fan of Mingus suites you'll probably get a lot out of this. A bag of peanuts to anyone who can name the altoist on this album. (It wasn't Dolphy ).
is that the only album he's ever doubled on alto with piano?
All music is 'easy listening' if you're digging it. Miss Lee was dynamite!
Dry roasted or ready salted?
