  1. i'm not sure how much money you can actually grab from releasing Grant Green material the paris session could've been left alone, since there is video already. but i'm happy for everything new that we get. i mean, the holy barbarian session is probably not of great artistic value but gives a great snapshot of grant's development. surely there is historic value in releasing unissued material? is it a bit odd how cuscuna likes this release so much when he is appearantly still sitting on better grant green material? and is it true that he writes in his liner notes that cannonball brought grant to NYC? wasn't that lou donaldson?
  2. good read. i think i commented on don lamond when the video came out. also ridley and kessel make quite a train-wreck of "i wish you love", playing the chords twice as fast to a visibly frustrated grant.
  3. now i'm even more intrigued. it*s got that late fifties vibe of jim hall. a final guess: dempsey wright?
  4. i only got jim hall on #1. looking forward to reading the discussion.
  5. who's Babs Gonzales?

    did you guys see this already?

    claude was kind enough to mail me the fifth tune. it's definitely attila zoller.

    i can't find my "i giganti del jazz" right now. could you post a snippet of the fifth tune?

    the track is cantaloupe woman, but played as a 12-bar blues instead of the original 16-bar blues form. the only thing they add at the end is the chromatic fall to the VI chord. but they still leave out 4 bars of the original tune.

    the material is from the 1966 newport guitar workshop. GG plays cantaloupe woman, zoller plays straight no chaser and darn that dream, and burrell plays an untitled blues. hth
  10. Unissued/Unreleased Grant Green

    the antibes is probably quartet with organ. did you guys notice the extra footage from ronnie scott's at the beginning of the sharony green movie? so there *is* more out there.

    wow. looking very much forward to the reveal on that one. i can't come up with a single name. it's not sonny greenwich either.

    track 2: the guitar player is fantastic. really channelling early 70s grant green but adds a little something. it's not grant but incredibly close. not benson but again very close. i'd say GG jr. but the recording seems older? i want more.

    track 5: bass player drives me totally nuts. richard davis? jack wilkins on guitar?
  14. new wes montgomery?

    weren't the montgomery/johnson dates supposed to be relased on CD after record day? i cant find anything on the resonance page. also didn't a member here mention another wes in the pipeline? thanks!
  15. neither have i. but even if there are those versions, as porter implies, his post in the comment section still makes no sense. he promises another post on the topic. looking forward to that.
  16. thanks, i see now. i always thought that the "lamp is low" quote was a part of the tune. after all it's a "pavane" as well (by ravel), so i always thought of it as trane's little inside joke. but i find porter's response in the comments still mildly confusing: " You might have read in my book that the bridge was possibly taken from "The Lamp is Low." I no longer believe that, because in fact it is false that Coltrane plays the same bridge in every single performance. As I wrote above, "the bridge is basically the A theme played a half-step higher, as Coltrane himself sometimes performed it." even if it's false that trane did play it *everytime* it's still taken from "the lamp is low"? even if there are unreleased versions of trane playing the "turrentine" version (i haven't heard any) do they outnumber the released versions (which all have "lamp is low" afaik) by such a margin that it can be concluded that the "turrentine" version is actually the correct one, as porter seems to imply? that can't be right. i don't get it.
  17. i'm not following. so the half-step up version is the "correct" one, and the "lamp is low" version is the "turrentine"? is that it? forgive me for being thick...
  18. sorry if it's been mentioned before. i really enjoyed it. https://tunein.com/radio/Doodlin-Lounge-p277958/
  19. BFT 162 REVEAL

    that's a great recording of milestones. much more aggressive than the other one. did he sound like that in the 60s? greenwich must have taken a few pages out of symond's book as well. do you remember the chord solos? there seems to be little on youtube that shows what he seemingly was capable of. to floor wes montgomery with chord solos is certainly something! thank you for that blindfold test.

    9. his single lines really sound like they influenced bickert. canadian, huh? the guy wes endorses in that tv interview? nelson symonds (sp?)?
  22. BFT for September

    just a guitar player.
  23. BFT for September

    not good, just lucky with the selection of tunes. 3. milt jackson on guitar with ray charles. he plays with his thumb like wes. mindblowing track. did he ever record on guitar before or after?
  24. BFT for September

    great compilation! 1. wardell gray 3. i love this. some of my most favourite recordings feature great musicians on "second" instruments. wes on 6-string bass, sam jones on cello. john webber plays great jazz guitar too. the guitarist falls into that league. he sounds a lot like wes on that echoes of indiana blues tune. it ain't wes, but man, has he soul. he did record with wes though 4. bird on tenor 5. this is lenny breau. the way he incorporates chords into his single-lines is so sophisticated. beautiful voicings. like a joe pass with more taste. 7. that swung. purely guessing: adrian rollini on xylophone? great rhythm guitar. that sounded so fresh. 9. poorly recorded, "blanket over amp" sound. but he is good. single lines do sound a bit like bickert, but a bit more agressive. would like to hear more. 12. sonny greenwich with bickert. great record and pairing. greenwich gets such a great sound out of his appearantly cheap amp. his obvious admiration for grant green and coltrane make him very enjoyable to listen to for me. and bickert has so much taste.
