Really strong straight up bop from a guy who is known for a few records with McGriff and more than a few on Pablo as last leader of Basie's reed section.

Sun Ra "Solar Myth Approach, Vols. 1 and 2" Corbett v. Dempsey 2 cd set, disc 1

R-2858779-1574705892-5420.jpeg.jpg

Hard to describe how transformed this release is by the new mastering. . . it never sounded half this good before.

Then on to a new fave, Marcela Mangebeira "Simples". . . a Brazilian singer doing bossa nova with new elements, not unlike Paul Morelenbaum has done this century as well. I totally dig this cd.

Jimmy McGriff - Blues to the Bone (Milestone)

Fun to hear Al Grey here.  You don't hear trombones with Hammond organ groups everyday.  But Grey sounds sweeeeeet, as does the whole band.

Oh yes, this was a favourite of mine in my first years of listening to jazz as a Teenager. 

I was really fascinated by the title tune, one of Trane´s best ballads of the 50´s. And Garland´s solo is also great, and of Course, the great bowed solo by Paul Chambers,

I’ve got the 24000 series 2LP of that one too and will give it a spin this weekend. Magnificent stuff - and Wilbur Harden is a good foil  !

Spinning now. One of the thinnest slabs of vinyl I’ve ever seen, typical of US pressings in 1976 (Impulse were masters of that art). I have to say though, it sounds excellent !

German ECM

Great memories of seeing this band in performance around the time of this release and they played some of the material - truly a group of all stars. Sadly, quite a few no longer with us (Lester, Malachi Thompson, Philip Wilson) but good that Frank Lacy, Steve Turre and others are still very much active musically.

Yep!

Sorta surprising that the steel drum isn't used more frequently in a jazz context.

NY mono version

The backbeat drumming on ‘Dixie Lee’ sounds so familiar, you wonder where you’ve heard it before. Then you realise it is on umpteen Motown records and who was on the Motown ‘house’ team for a time - Freddie Waits.

Gearbox 2LP - excellent.

The later (1979) session has the best sound. It is possible that I might have caught the original (late Sunday night) ‘Jazz In Britain’ broadcast on Radio 3.

RSD issue, signed by Ron. Lovely 2LP release by the German In ‘n’ Out label. As usual, Renee Rosnes’ playing is superb.

The only other example I can think of off the top of my head is Third World by Abdul Al Hannan, which uses them prominently.
