  1. Does Oscar Peterson get a bad rap?

  2. On a Woody Herman Tribute with the WDR big band you could hear on tenor sax Bill Holman / Al Cohn & Sal Nistico really doing the thing. WDR Bigband RB WDR 1987/06/12 120 Köln(I), Stadtg D Holman/Nistico/Cohn WDR Bigband RB WDR 5 1987/06/12 120 Köln,Stadtg. D Holman/Cohn/Nistico
  3. Jimmy Smith

    His first 2 albums on Blue Note are real winners.
  4. Does Oscar Peterson get a bad rap?

    Maybee a little "offtopic" but Nelson Riddle was a great arranger and had some nice albums on Capitol. "C'mon get happy" is the swingiest. Same genre as Jackie Gleason for the "lighter side" but he is also available with swinging big band sounds. BTW "Changing Colors" is here in the stock. The music is like the title "changing colors" If I need "noise" I am to 50 % a big band collector and have enought stuff for that direction too. ;-]]

  6. Does Oscar Peterson get a bad rap?

    Have about 60 Items with Oscar LP's / CD's and some boxes. He is one of my favorite jazz artists I can listen to at any time. Beginning with his very early recordings on RCA, the rich selections on Verve under his name as well as doing "the house rhythm section" for other Norman Granz' artists and some on the Pablo label, Justintime label + some live stuff from the swiss radio label and the french RTE/Trema and reissues on VSP/VSPS. The high rated "London House" recordings do not belong to my favorites. Heavens sake the tastes are different. Outstanding for me are the Trio recordings without drummer that is with Ray Brown, Barney Kessel or Herb Ellis. The "song books" are nice but not a deep performance. but the rest with the Trio is first class [for me]. The MPS material is superbe because of the recording technique and I like also the " decadent Euro 19710 fondue sound" if I need some quieter music. That is all I can comment from my side on this thread. Thanks
  7. Reissue labels - legit or not

    Thanks for the link & Info. I did assume however only the new "Phono" label could be from there but I am not certain about it because there is no printed Information on the CD . I have ordered my copies from the spanish mailorder service "Jazz Memssengers" (= distributor acc. my Invboice). You can look up the label at Discogs ---> Phono (4)
  8. Galt MacDermot (1928-2018)

    He is not too well known even under big band fans. I happen to have one vinyl by pure accident because it looked interesting in a mailorder service offer. Down Beat gave it a rating of 3 1/2 stars. Here are the LP scans & the review
  9. Reissue labels - legit or not

    Correct this is also my Impression. Andorra in Spain has a very short copyright protection for material (less than 50 years I've read somewhere) so most material they do issue is public domain in their county. I assume they are located there. BTW have just got a vinyl from the "DeAgostini UK Ltd" which is officially licensed. Excellent vinyl quality.
  10. Downbeat review books

    The complete series is Vol I to Vol VIII. I have 7 and missing Vol VII. If there is someone who wants to sell it send a PM. Thanks

  13. Reissue labels - legit or not

    Thank you for this. It looks they have original source & licence indeed for some material. This imprint is IMO not found on all issues.. For example not on my 4 LP JATP box. But your scan clears the matter a bit more. BTW have just received some CD's from the spanish Jazz Messenger Service on the label "Phono". No information at all on these "Phono" editions. Seems very questionable re thew source.
  14. Emil Richards 1932-2019

    Lord's discography does not list the members of the orchestra so it might be Emil Richars. He is found on many CAPITOL G. Shearing & Stan Kenton LPs as well as in the groups of Paul Horn. He played also in the Glen Gray bands (series "Sound of the great bands") and the orchestra of Shorty Rogers just to name a few of his stations.
  15. Reissue labels - legit or not

    Speakers Corner Records is a german company and not US!!! Speakers Corner HiFi GmbH Eichkoppel 15A 24214 Gettorf Germany Dont see a license entry for their records on the Items. They dont have a label/logo on their r4eissue discs. IMO this is a pure reissue company for public domain material as is Doxy (= sublabel of a russian organisation). They all make immense money and do not draw from original mastertapes thats for sure. More Info here https://www.discogs.com/label/75430-Speakers-Corner-Records

  21. Does Oscar Peterson get a bad rap?

    The title of this thread is misleading IMO. The individual preferences which one of his groups they like or not is a private statement and thats it. I have collected Peterson from his very early recordings on over all periods. My preferences are the trios with Brown and Kessel and/or Ellis. The Brown/Kessel fomation was the house rhythm serction for Norman Granz and is basis for many great records with all the great names you can find. The MPS recordings are also great for their sound. There is no doubt that he is one of the great names in jazz and this remains. The private statements from some people what they like or not has nothing to do with the quality Oscars playing. Thats a fact. Private opinions respected but they do not mean anything about the status of an artist like Peterson or others.
