  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Disc 1 of 2. A great album recorded with Herb Hall, Buck Clayton, Vic Dickenson, Dick Wellstood, Ahmed Abdul-Malik and Shep Shepherd.

    He also wrote the liner notes for that 1992 Charlei Rich CD. for all four!!!! . Nice! Now watching & listening to:
  3. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    This is such a great album, probably one of the finest career capping, legacy building recordings any artist has been fortunate enough to create. I think it is high time some creative jazz singer recorded a Charlie Rich Songbook album. The man was a masterful songwriter and if you think of him as "just" a country singer, take a listen to this track and think again. Some nice piano work there by Mr. Rich. The bari sax was played by Fred Ford. Calvin Newborn and Johnny Vidacovich were also in that group along with James Singleton on bass and Dour Garrison on shaker. The final track on this album is a reworking of another of his compositions, the classic "Feel Like Going Home". This is powerful music. Eerie that it would turn out to be the final track on his final album.

    This is a really nice album, probably the least "Lionel Hamptonish" album Lionel Hampton ever made. Has this ever found its way onto CD?

    Wow. Just wow. 40 years down the road, this is still an incredible performance.
  6. PD labels

    Way back in the the 1990's, when I was getting deeper into jazz and had some limited expendable income with which I could indulge my interest, Tower Records had an outlet store in the South of Market area of SF. It made way for the not-Candlestick Park ballpark that was constructed there. But they had some great deals on cut-outs and a whole lot of these, I think they were of Italian origin, budget CDs on the "Giants of Jazz" label. Here's a couple of samples: (I actually still have that CD somwhere, I'm sure ) Anybody else remember these or still have some of these? I think I got rid of the Wes Montgomery discs in this series once I got the Complete Riverside Recordings boxed set, but these "Giants of Jazz" discs were my first real exposure to his music. I think I had 3 Montgomery CDs at probably $3.99 or $4.99 a pop back then. I bought a ton of these kind of discs at that Tower Outlet store way back then . . .
