Chu Berry and his Stompy Stevedores - CHU

 

brought home on my way from work and they're both gorgeous, Eddie Miller on the first one I had never really heard up to now, I really like the covers, too... judging by their catalogue numbers (7080 and 7084) these two must have hit the market around the same time in 1955 but there's no indication that they're from the same collection...

Wonder if they do some of the UK Philips and Fontana sleeves?

Apparently there will be Marte Röling Covers in the exhibition... (did she do anything beyond that amazing Fontana series?)  ... will report back!

Indeed! In addition to graphic design she is also a rather well-known "pop" painter, sculptor, and creator of public art installations. Have read a few interviews with her; I'll try to dig them up.

Not quite as clean as the Bartok Records LP, but pretty damn close. No scratches, just a few one-time pops. And no noise at all in the quiet spaces. I had forgotten how quiet a well-made and well-cared for LP could really be.

A very nice record and some of the tunes from "My Fair Lady", "Paint my wagon" and so on cannot be heard often by a jazz combo. Great line of the 57 edition of the Messengers with Griff and Bill Hardman.

I bought this RCA "Black and White" Series in spring 1978 and still have it in good shape. A beautiful thing.

Once I met Bill Hardman and told him that the first time I heard his trumpet was on this "Messengers play Lerner and Lowe" and he said "yeah, I remember that date" .

Like an idiot it was the mention of ‘Brigadoon’ that put me off that one. Guess I had images of Andy Stewart Hogmanay singalongs with Blakey on drums :D. I think the Jazz press reviews were a bit lukewarm as well. Anyway, my loss..

This must be interesting. I saw Joe Newman on several occasions, and Eddie Chamblee once. Hamp one time in 1983.

Yes, it's a solid LP. :tup

I'm jealous that you got to see Joe Newman perform live. He's one of my all-time favorite trumpeters -- and I never had that opportunity. ;)

But at least here in Vienna he had that kind of reputation......, you know he was always booked as a single with a local rhythm section but he always had that kind of lecturing the band on stage, much to the embarresment of the solid guys who played with him who had played with a lot of others too. I say, you can check them out on rehearsal and tell them how you want a certain tune, but not on stage ! I don´t know what he wanted, everything sounded fine, but I think you don´t necesarly have to lecture musicians for playing "Bye Bye Blackbird".

I´d say he has a fine sound and was really a 100% trumpet player.

I've owned the CD compilation that shaved a long track from this for some time. Good to have the full programme. A very, very good trio

Indeed, great trio. Have the LPs shelved but haven't dug them out in far too long.

2 1/2 stars from Down Beat. Quote (by Leonard Feather, FWIW hereabouts ^_^); "... this was potentially a four-star album, except for the material, which fits like the first suit you pick off the pipe rack. On the other hand, commercially speaking, i know Vik's Bob Rolontz was wise to use this gimmick, for it should certainly help the Messengers towards a healthy sale."
