Vic Lewis 'Plays Bossa Nova At Home and Away' (HMV stereo). Some great Tubby Hayes and Ronnie Scott with a London band on side 1. Side 2 has an equally stellar LA lineup with Shorty Rogers, Jack Sheldon and Bud Shank. A bossa nova theme album that actually works.

B000000Y7S.01._SCLZZZZZZZ_.jpg

(Original Riverside, though!)

This is a great record. Some discussion recently about Kenny's Riverside albums being better than his BN sides...not sure about this, but this one is nice!

The East THirteenth Street Band -- fun LP on Rizzoli Records. It's painter Larry Rivers' band that fuses dixieland with bebop, and it just sounds like they are having a good time.

Introducing 'Phil Porter and his Organ' (UA Stereo)

Bought this a long time ago at Mole Jazz in London. Lineup looked interesting (Howard McGhee, Harold Ousley, Paul Chambers, Art Taylor).

The session does not sound as good as it should!

Spun this weekend an interesting piece -

Jack DeJohnette "Have You Heard" (CBS Japan pressing)

Apparently this is the original version, with a black and orange gatefold cover. Got it off the net for $40 and I'd never seen this pressing of it before. Anybody else have this version? Definitely a significant improvement sound-wise over the crappy Milestone issue - and a damn fine session, I might add.

I know that many jazz purists look down their aristocratic noses at the compilations, issued in boxed sets by such organizations as Readers' Digest and Time and the like. Most of us would choose the original releases if we could.

However, they were surprisingly well done and I have been listening to one of them for the last couple of days, issued by Time, called "In The Groove With The Kings Of Swing".

This collection has everybody contributing to it from the Dukes of Dixieland, to Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Lionel Hampton, Gene Krupa, Jonah Jones, Tommy Dorsey, Bud Freeman, Earl Hines, Charlie Barnet,

Artie Shaw, Muggsy Spanier, Duke Ellington,

Ziggy Elman, Fats Waller, Pete Kelly, Red Nichols and many more.

The production is very very good and it gives a really nice overview of what was being listened to at the time.

So, although I have plenty of original releases, these kinds of collections are well worth snapping up, IMO, when the opportunity to do so arises.

AND they're usually cheap like borcht.:D

He's playing tonight in Minneapolis, granted in an entirely different context, and probably less sinus-clearing...

Thanks for the disc, Chuck!
