Yes, it's me and I'm forever grateful to you for posting it and recommending it. Great album. I'm holding out as perhaps the only European copy :)

 

A copy arrived at the Chicago Tribune when I was there; I put it on because I knew of Francis from Ellis' "New Ideas," loved it, and wrote an enthusiastic review. Afterwards I got in touch with Francis by phone, and we had a very pleasant conversation.

Not to turn this into a hijacked Al Francis thread, but a bassist friend of mine played with him in Boston some years ago. According to my friend, that night he was playing drums, not vibes.

I can't even say that I have your excuse. :)

I hadn't listened for awhile because: A) I had in my mind that this was a lesser version of the Unit, and B) it's an hour and a half long. Well, it's not the "tightest" of the Units in terms of developing Taylor's material, but it's perhaps the most varied in terms of strategies for dealing with that material - there is more variety of texture and tone color than on most Taylor albums. And this is some of the best Leroy Jenkins I've heard - he's really on fire here.

And recorded on Paul Secor's birthday, 1987.

This spin makes me regret my decision back in 1988 - I had the choice of buying Live in Bologna from the same tour on either double LP or edited CD. I chose wrongly, and now have the CD.

Too bad that wasn't my birth date. I only wish that I were 31 - but knowing what I know now. :D

Two vocal LPs:

Rosemary Clooney - Clap Hands! Here Comes Rosie (RCA mono). I recently found a cheap, near-mint copy of this and spun it for the first time tonight. It could have been a great album. Rosie is in good voice, the songs are mostly well-chosen, and there are jazz solos by Pete Candoli, Bud Shank, etc. - and there are uncredited vibraphone obligatos that sound like Eddie Costa to me. But the arrangements are kind of corny and novelty-ish. It could have been a contender....

Jeanne Lee/Ran Blake - The Newest Sound Around (RCA stereo). The Real Deal.

Soundtrack to Diva , a French film.

That La Wally Aria is wonderful, but the LP mastering isn't the best on this track. I heard the digital mastering on Amazon Music and it seems to sound improved.

Wilhelmenia Wiggins Fernandez was the soprano.

And I really enjoy Vladimir Cosma's film music. He did great work for many French comedies.

Guitar Shorty - the North Carolina musician, not the electric guitarist - was one of those guitarist/singers like Robert Pete Williams and Joseph Spence, who created and lived in a musical world of his own. A unique musician and one to be treasured.

Gerry Mulligan Quartet (Pacific Jazz). A couple of years ago I found a beautiful copy of Pacific Jazz #1 in Bellingham, Washington. I'm happy to be its caretaker for a few years, until someone else inherits it.

Lars Gullin - Modern Sounds: Sweden (Contemporary). Two 1953 sessions - quartet and quintet.
