He he !  I think it came out about 1966/67 and must have flown off the shelves even then (and was probably served up from under the counter in a brown paper bag). I certainly never heard of it until I heard about that reissue.

Art Farmer - You Make Me Smile (Soul Note). With Clifford Jordan. This is not as good as I thought it would be when I bought it, but I really can't put my finger on any reason why. Too tame maybe?

George Coleman - Ronnie Scott's Presents George Coleman 'Live' (Pye). I've always wanted to get this on vinyl after reading the Penguin's comment on it and I finally found a beautiful mint copy at Stereo Jack's last week.

Dolo Coker - Dolo! (Xanadu). Killer lineup. Coker with Blue Mitchell and Harold Land in the front line. It's interesting to hear Frank Butler again after reading Jimmy Cobb's interview where he talks about telling Miles that Frank was the best drummer in CA.

Gil Evans (Ampex). Layers upon layers of wonderful things going on here. I find this 1969 album almost painfully beautiful.

That MEV/AMM LP is awesome!  I also totally love the Sonic Arts Union album on the same label...

tonights playlist:

Ark Percussion Group "Black Hole" (Sony, Japan) late 70s modern percussion album bought solely for the sublime Michael Ranta contribution.

George Otsuka "sea breeze" (union, Japan)

Agreed. That whole series is great, in fact.

I blame the cover. You can't have a lot of Pac-Men trying to slurp a couple of spermatozoa and a reflecting ghost head and get a proper handle on the music, I don't care if you do try to make it all better with a couple of flowers.

It's just a bad choice that was made, that cover was.

Elvin Jones - Coalition (BN) Early Liberty pressing with Van Gelder stamps, if that's important. In any case, it sounds better than on eight-track tape (which was the first format in which I had this music). And it's a bad-ass band, with Frank Foster and George Coleman.

George Lewis at Dixieland Hall (Nobility). A later Lewis album, from 1965. Trumpeter Joshua Willis, born 20 years after Lewis, was a really interesting player. He played with both the Young Tuxedo Brass Band and Ray Charles; he was adept at traditional New Orleans style, but he was also bebop-ish and (to my ears) Bobby Hackett-ish.

Lovely album, that 'Long Green'. I bought that Savoy reissue when it first came out and still have it. Time for an 'airing'.

'Lee Morgan' (BN UA 2LP) - the 'Capra Black' session.
