Pleasant dates, though Quincy did no writing for them. I prefer the alto and tenor-baritone dates to the trumpet one. Good to hear Walter Benton; he didn't get showcased enough. Nice to hear Art Pepper and Benny Carter in tandem.

So I'm thinking, uh-oh, this is going to be one of those alleged records where Quincy Jones takes credit for somebody else's writing, but no, full and proper credit is given right there in plain black and white where nay even semi-literate fool could read it if the wanted to. And the cover says "supervised by", not arranged by! And the liner notes say that he was "commissioned to produce" the record, and then give full credit to who did the actual writing!

DESPICABLE!!!!! :g

I was making no accusation -- merely pointing out that QJ's name should not lead one to think that he did anything but supervise the project, as I assume he honorably did. BTW, the Johnny Mandel who wrote "Keester Parade" strikes again here, coming up with "London Derrierre."

 

Actually some of the album's originals are IIRC quite nice -- Giuffre's "Dancin' Pants" and "Mariano's "The Oom is Blues" in particular, maybe more. Aside from the sheer quality of the playing, one thing that makes the alto date nice is how distinctive each of the soloists is. One might be hard pressed nowadays to find four guys as specifically themselves and as topnotch as Pepper, Carter, Mariano, and Geller were. In fact, I get the sense that for these guys playing with each other was a rather moving experience (though there was little love, or even respect, lost between Geller and Pepper, Herb having stated more than once that he thought Pepper was very overrated and that he was the much superior player).

Listened again to all of "Go West, Young Man" and would rate it a good deal higher than pleasant. For one thing the three rhythm sections include Carl Perkins, Lou Levy, Red Mitchell, LeRoy Vinnegar, Shelly Manne and Mel Lewis, and all three are top notch -- more Perkins is always a joy. All the saxophonists are in fine form --especially Carter (very intense), Perkins, and  and Colette (what a lovely player he was). Giuffre's "Bright Moon" is a nutty piece that's hard to get out of your head, and Mariano's sax soli passage on "The Oom is Blues" is something else. Only drawback on the Lonehill CD reissue that also includes the tracks from Jones' terrific "This Is How I Feel About Jazz" album (it's used for the title here) is that the transfer isn't quite what it should be; there are some moments of distortion. Nothing awful, but some people can't stand that, especially if they know that it's the fault of an outfit like Lonehill, while the original LP was perfectly OK.
