Chet Baker - "Chet Baker In New York" (Riverside/Craft Recordings). Recently released reissue from Craft Recordings, Concord's specialty label akin to Rhino in the 90's but a little more upscale. Nice cut done by Kevin Gray. Nice jacket too. Craft recently reissued 4 Baker titles. I picked up the 3 instrumentals. Not a huge fan of Chet's vocals.

What's up with that recorder band? Are they all renaisannce-y or something else altogether? Not that far removed from a flute ensemble...

It's four recorders (soprano, alto, tenor and bass recorders), backed by George Duvivier, Paul Motian and Al Schackman (guitar). Bob Dorough is on tenor (recorder) and vocals on a couple of tracks and also wrote the charts, approaching it like he is writing for a sax section. So it's really like jazz charts for four recorders, with Bob on lead tenor; the others are not improvisers. There are lengthy humorous liner notes, which begin as two loose pages as inserts and continue on the back sleeve. Bob wants to call the group the MJQ, but realizes that "the Undertakers" might be unhappy with him. The other three recordists are members of the Manhattan Recorder Consort. It's the rare semi-humorous jazz album, but the music part is actually serious--it is good, if not something I would want to listen to often. The best piece to me was the version of Autumn Leaves for just the four recorders.

Sounds like a good $5.98 (or less) record, I'll look for it!

But this raises the question - did Dorough ever play tenor? Or any saxophone? Or flute? Or was recorder his first instrument?

I set up a second turntable in my house. I get deals on Denon/Marantz equipment, so I picked up a Denon DP-400. I had an extra Ortofon 2M Black cartridge that I picked up on the used market a few years back as a back up and I installed it onto this turntable. Very nice sound. My first play was the Classic Records version of Simon & Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Water". If you are a fan of this record, you should really try to find a copy of this for yourself. A big step up over the old Columbia 2 eye.

Wider sound stage, better highs.

Red Garland - Soul Junction (Prestige). Nice blue/silver RVG pressing. I do dig those blues. Whenever I play this, I sometimes wonder why Coltrane took so long to join the band on the long title track. It's almost like they were thinking about ending the tune, when they said, "Oh wait - John - get in here"!

Stanley Turrentine - Use the Stairs (Fantasy, 1980)

Meh arrangements by Wade Marcus. ... If you're wanting to hear Stanley in this sort of context, I think his two late-70s LPs with Claus Ogerman are much more convincing -- especially West Side Highway. ... And there's the CTIs from the beginning of the 70s, of course.
