how much you wanna bet my copy of brassamba is the audiophile version compared to the original pressing- i bet mine sounds way better if i had both to compare

I don't know why you think a 1981 Liberty pressing would sound better than an original Pacific Jazz pressing. I've heard original PJ LPs and the sound isn't bad but I have heard some pretty horrible Liberty pressings from the late 70's-early 80's. :)

I would like to own a clean original Brasamba, though the Hokusai cover on this reissue is kinda fun in its way.

i guess the vinyl quality wowed me it looked so shiny- like those 80s green label beach boys lps-- way better than the original 60s ones

It might be a fun exercise to put together a record's worth of nothing but Erroll Garner introductions and then release them as "modern classical piano compositions". There's enough tells for a really keen-eared listener to eventually catch on, but there's more than enough to throw most people off. I mean, even with the knowledge of knowing what record is playing on my turntable, I still have these moments of doubt about maybe they fucked up at the record label and put a wrong track on there. :g

Nice shirt, btw. French cuffs still look good to me.

I've often thought the same of Nelson Riddle's intros to Sinatra ballads.

btw, that Garner record came with an absolutely gorgeous/pristine thick-ish paper inner sleeve, one of these. I had never seen one before, never knew about them, so it's an unexpected treat!

R-1351098-1432670943-2525.jpeg.jpg

Chico Hamilton - The Head Hunters (Solid State, 1969)
with Steve Potts (as); Russ Andrews (ts); Ray Nance (vn); Eric Gale (g); Jan Arnet (b)

No, not those Head Hunters! ;) 

Stumbled across this LP recently in a local shop.  I had no idea that Steve Potts was with Chico before he began his long association with Steve Lacy.  ... And Ray Nance is in there too -- using an electric pick-up, which gives him a very different sound.

Good stuff!

Speaking of which, I'm missing his eclectic posts (always educational). Hope he returns to posting

Really clean vinyl, too. I think I hit this Half-Price location at the right time, plenty of good classical LPs of this vintage in there, all very-well cared for at really cheap prices. Seems like somebody's parents or grandparents died, survivor's loss, my gain. That'll come full-circle at some point, but until it does, hey, it's nice to experience this music in this way

To wit:

s-l300.jpg

Comes complete with a Dover Records inner sleeve that gives little conversational blurbs about each record, a nice touch. Guess they sold them for $2.00 each. If so, HP screwed me, then, I paid $2.00 for it myself. Vinyl is not consistently clean, but the shit jsut ROARS off the record, amazingly live and vivid quality. I have visions of some urban-suburban "longhair" type playing this rec ord on one of the bigass console hi-fi systems, just cranking it up, and scaring the hell out of everybody in the house and outside of it. But it's not scary music unless you get scared by it. I embrace it's roar myself.

I'm wondering if it's a US release of this:

My LP is a LOT less noisy than is this 78.

Too bad I didn´t purchase this when it was easy available in all record shops. Would have liked to hear how Errol sounds with Brass. During the 70´s Errol Garner was quite en vogue here in Vienna, especially among middle aged people who otherwise didn´t listen much to jazz. They might have some classical and one or two Errol´s, but no Trane, Mingus or Ornette, not even Miles or Bird. So when I came in visit somewhere and would browse through the them their records the only stuff I would listen too was Erroll, maybe out of necessity. But I always have liked him. I think even the most critical Miles who dissed almost everybody had some nice words about Erroll.

Nice shirt indeed, and believe it or not, but my first pair of cuffs was also those frensh cuffs and I still have them and wear them ocasionally.

I´m not so much into non jazz music but since I had learned some hungarian when I was younger, I had to read what´s written on the record and it says it is in the memory of Bartók for the 5th anniversary  after his death. Hungarian Radio record from 1950.

The strange thing I heard something that sounds a bit like Bartók to me I found on Graham Moncur´s "Some Other Stuff" on the tune "Twins". It reminds me of some transsilvanian folk music I heard much in my youth. The kind of stuff you heard on weddings, and the kind of stuff that I think had influenced Belá Bartók´s writing.

The Garner record is not all with brass backing, that's a little deceptive. Maybe on half of the cuts at most. They're arranged by Don Sebesky, have a totally modern sound, and contribute nothing to the overall proceedings. Nor do they detract from them. They're just there. It's Erroll's show all the way.

I have a CD of a collection of (some of?) Bartok's actual field recordings. That's something to hear!

I'm pretty sure of my guess that Erroll went into a studio, in an hour or two knocked off an album's worth of music with the trio and went home.  The producer asked Sebesky to add a "Brass Bed" that Erroll knew nothing about and never slept in...

That sounds more than a little right to me...literally and otherwise.

I have some of those field recordings on LP as well, amazing stuff. Hungaroton put out a few boxes of that material (and Kodaly's).

Oh, if that´s the case, I think I might not regret so much that I haven´t purchased that album. I had thought it might be a really encounter with hornplayers. Anyway, I think the most spinning Errol gets from me ist the "Cool Blues" session date, the tracks with Bird and Earl Coleman. Actually, did Erroll play with other hornplayers or vocalists on other occasions, I mean other settings that trio ?
