  2. On Disc Two of the new Mosaic Tristano set, it sounds to me at times like Lee is trying to rival or even exceed Lennie. Fantastic playing in any case.

Bop Goes the Leesel Tracks #1-9, Recorded at Radio Recorders, Hollywood, on December 21, 1956 Tracks #10-15, Recorded at ABC Studios, Hollywood, March 11, 1957 PRESS REVIEWS "These tracks date from the time Marsh spent back in his hometown - well, Los Angeles - from February 1956 to November 1957, leading a quintet that was something of a Tristano student reunion. Disc one reprises the material that once appeared on the Imperial and Kapp labels, and there are some very familiar characteristics: improbably tricky themes deriving from familiar harmonic territory - Ball, Brown and Marsh all contribute - propelling the improvisation into fascinating demonstrations of agility. Marsh and Brown are never exactly competitive, but clearly stimulate each other intensely; at times they wrap around themselves almost organically, prodded on by Ball's perfectly-judged piano work. Yet there's also a wider aspect to it; the two tenors give the front line a somewhat heavier character than you might expect from the experience of Marsh and Konitz: bassist Tucker gets to feature on his own "Ben Blew" and Jeff Morton gets to play with the sticks, which he never did with Lennie. By the time "I Never Knew" comes along, with its drum-breaks, stop-time bounces and Condon Gang coda, there's a distinct feeling that school's out. Disc two introduces Art Pepper into the mix: nine tracks - "Aretha" through "Arrival" - feature him. Originally on a Vanguard LP, it was in fact Brown's date, came out under his name, Marsh no more than a bystander and adviver. A further move away from Tritano's influence, less convolution, though the two noted above, by Ball, and Marsh's "Long Gone", set up more thematic obstacle-courses. Pepper copes well, sometimes superbly, and also makes you realise why Konitz fitted so easily into his chair in the Kenton band. The final 15 minutes is back into the Marsh-Brown configuration, and is taken from a TV show of the period. Bobby Troup does the talking, and shows an understanding of the music. A good, though inevitably brief, version of "Background Music", plus two minutes of improvising on "Pop Goes The Weasel". Really. These sessions mark the start of Marsh's career as leader and organiser, and as such fill an important gap in his history." Jack Cooke -Jazz Review Price: 14,95 € (tax incl.)

  4. Post a pic

    Been there. Watched the very low-lying fog roll in. Quite a sight.
  5. Terry Teachout, R.I.P.

    His Armstrong biography IIRC was decent. His Ellington biography was an eccentric wart-hunting disgrace IMO. Ellington, per Teachout, should have had academic classical training.

    Liberty -- 1 More deaths from Covid -- 50
  7. MICHAEL BRECKER

    I was at the Notre Dame Jazz Festival under5 the auspices of Down Beat where Randy Sandke and Brecker played (Randy is a longtime friend of mine). Later that year, Randy, Brecker and some others were sharing in an apartment in Chicago's Old Town neighborhood when a female member of their crowd downed some acid and jumped out a third- or -fourth-story window to her death. This led to significant hassling by the police, as weil it might have.
  8. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    When I first heard this back in the day it was a revelation.
  9. Peter -- The confusion arises (probably) because Fresh Sound issued "Burnin'" in a two-CD package coupled with the Argo album I referred to above. I don't know what (if anything) the liner notes of that Fresh Sound package say about rhythm section personnel, but I stand by my ID of the Ramsey Lewis Trio as the rhythm section on the album that Fresh Sound coupled with "Burnin." The "ear" test tells the story. The bassist sounds like (is) El Dee Young, and the pianist on the date I referred to doesn't sound at all like Barry Harris.
  10. Brad, if you're taking about the excellent Argo album later issued as a CD on Chess-MCA -- the one with "Propapagoon," "Just You, Just Me," etc. and no personnel listed (the original LP had the same color photo of Stitt on the front and back covers and no liner notes) -- while the rhythm section is identified in the CD liner notes as "possibly" Barry Harris, William Austin, and Frank Gant, Stitt is in fact backed there very well by the Ramsey Lewis Trio, who were of course Argo regulars. One giveaway is the quite distinctive bass playing of El Dee Young. Also, the unboppish pianist sounds like Lewis and in no way like Harris. Furthermore the CD liner notes quote Harris as denying any knowledge of this date.
  11. Pat Martino RIP.

    There's a latter-day Joe Pass album on Telarc with John Pisano on rhythm guitar. I'm not a Pass fan by and large, but it's a pretty good one.
  12. Buddy Collette

    There's an excellent latter-day (1990) big band album led by Collette, "Live at El Camino College" (UFO Bass) with a formidable 20-piece lineup of LA veterans (Red Callender, Thurman Green, Bobby Bryant, et al.) Lots of writing by Colette. There another such album on Bridge from 1996 that duplicates part of the El Camino program. I'm sure it's worthwhile too.
  13. McCoy Tyner

    Against my previous and perhaps better judgment of Lovano's work, I kind of liked his "Garden of Expression." The relative lack of pulse somehow turned out to be a plus; semi-ethereal seemed to be working for him.
