Johnny Griffin - Foot Patting - (Youngblood, UK)

This was issued on Vogue in Germany as Lady Heavy Bottom's Waltz, and is a very groovy session of Clarke-Boland regulars.

i got this lp on APPLAUSE today (not a bn reissue---an actual applause original)-- 

it looked like perhaps some awesome smooth jazz record, 1982....tom barney was on bass (steely dan2k)--- tom pierson is the leader and lp name.  

 

anyhoo, IT SUX

Otis Spann: The Blues Is Where It's At

My favorite Otis Spann after the Candid sessions. Probably his best with a band - in this case a great one - Muddy''s.

Great one. Mine has a somewhat different, rather plain black and white cover with black labels.

George Finola - Jazz of the Chosen Few (New Orleans Originals mono). A really nice one from 1965, equally influenced by Bix and New Orleans, and including Blue Lu Barker's first recorded vocals since the 1940s.

Marion Brown - Three for Shepp (Impulse)

Budd Johnson - Off the Wall (Argo mono). Just picked this one up. I have a soft spot for Budd Johnson, since his Argo album that preceded this one, Ya! Ya!, was the first jazz album I owned.

I heard Finola in Chicago  in the late '60s when he was the cornetist in a fine band that Art Hodes led, with bassist Truck Parham and drummer Hilliard Brown. George was a soulful player.

Steve Lacy - Eronel (Horo)

Willie Guy Rainey (Southland/Jazzology)

Willie Guy Rainey lived in Rico, Georgia, a tiny community southwest of Atlanta. Until late in his life, he only played rural and small-town parties and dances, but he played fairly regularly in Atlanta for a few years after this album was recorded in 1978. At one gig, well into his 70s, he was apparently quite taken with my friend Janna, who would have been in her 20s at the time. She told me that he told her, "Honey, we would have pretty babies. I'd even marry you." She politely declined.

Bud Freeman -------Superbud--------(77 records)

 

Late Bud , some what underpowered given that he's a bit too recessed in the mix. English pianist Keith Ingham complete the band. Bud always has plenty of ideas but this is not amongst his greatest recordings. Having said that, there is no bad Bud.

Interesting pairing. I've come to expect that sort of thing from Jeff.

Amusing story about Willie Guy Rainey, too.

The Montgomery Brothers and Five Others (World Pacific). This one does not appear to have been reissued on CD, despite the presence of Wes Montgomery; it should be.

Oliver Nelson, King Curtis & Jimmy Forrest - Soul Battle (Prestige/OJC). Generally, when the Penguin pans a Prestige jam session, I don't agree. This isn't one of those times. It's OK, but nothing big happens.

I'm spinning this again and it's weird that they only list Oliver Nelson on tenor when it's obvious that he's playing alto on a couple of tunes.

Yes, all of the Montgomery (Brothers) World Pacific and Pacific Jazz material made it to CD eventually.  In the U.S., they had new titles (Fingerpickin'; Far Wes; etc) and new covers.

More recently, Fresh Sound put out a 2-CD set containing five albums (including some Mastersounds and Jon Hendricks material) on those labels, plus a rare track recorded for Columbia in 1955.  http://www.freshsoundrecords.com/wes-montgomery/5110-the-montgomeryland-sessions-2-cd-set.html

Lyle Ritz - 50th State Jazz (Verve mono). I really like Ritz's ukulele playing - it actually reminds me of a little Johnny Smith's guitar style. But there are some pretty corny tunes and arrangements to contend with here.

Max Roach / Archie Shepp - Force (Uniteledis / Base). Separated from the Ritz by a couple of hours, lest Paul give me too much credit.

Old 10" LP time here at the Crompton house:

Edmond Hall - Quartette with Teddy Wilson (Commodore)

Louis Armstrong - New Orleans Days (Decca). I've had this for years, but I just put two and two together tonight and realized that this was Pops' first LP.

Ken Colyer - Back to the Delta (London). Six tunes by Colyer's Jazzmen; three by his Skiffle Group. I've long enjoyed Colyer's personal take on traditional New Orleans jazz; the Jazzmen include Acker Bilk and Dis Disley. By the time he made this 1954 album, Colyer must have heard the 10" American Music LP This is Bunk Johnson Talking - in "Moose March" he reproduces a supposed Buddy Bolden lick that Bunk whistled to demonstrate Bolden's style.

British skiffle amuses me no end. Maybe some of the Brits here can educate me - did people think that this bore any actual resemblance to any kind of American music, or was it just your own thing? Anyway, Alexis Korner is on board here, in an early recorded appearance.

I think the skiffle here was a sort of 'do your own thing' thing. Soap box and string to make a bass = low cost of entry and I guess when it started the WW2 rationing was only just being withdrawn. A bit of a craze - sort of the 'Pokemon Go' of its day.

Now spinning - Miles Davis 'Agharta' (UK CBS 2LP). Again, my old copy benefitting from a cleaning machine brush up..
