Rare Garrick EP with Joe Harriott and cathedral organ !

I've never even seen that before, had no idea that it existed.

Good stuff?

It’s in Garrick’s ‘Liturgical’ style - influenced by English medieval/choral/church music. Totally unique. In the same vein as ‘Jazz Praises at St Pauls’. The music was reissued by Vocalion on CD on one of the Garrick releases.

I think his experiments in this area even preceded Duke Ellington - the ‘Sacred Concerts’ would be a US equivalent but this is much more English. 

The Argo EP was produced in tiny numbers I think.

Oh, I missed that one. I thought I'd seen all of Vocalion's Garrick reissues. Apparently not.  ;)

Interesting point about Garrick's "sacred jazz" preceding EKE's. ... I wonder if Duke was aware of what Garrick was doing in that area, if it possibly influenced his thinking.

Doubt that there was any influence on Duke but that is an interesting thought. Mary Lou Williams also operating in this area at that time.

The ‘Anthem’ tracks are on Dutton Vocalion’s reissue of the ‘October Woman’ LP. To be honest I think the CD sounds better as unlike most old EPs, there is no snap crackle pop. Vocalion had access to the master tape I think.

Good to remind myself of just how damn brilliant this one is. This was one very happy and compatible front line.

You're right.  Forgot about Mary Lou!  Since they were friends, her influence on EKE would've been much more likely.

Now on my 'table:

R-3785043-1389534734-1064.jpeg.jpg

Gato Barbieri - Caliente! (A&M, 1976)
The A&Ms aren't my favorite Gato records -- but they're enjoyable.  Barbieri & Alpert definitely achieved what they set out to do. 

EDIT:
I'd forgotten how much this sounds like a CTI record. Alpert & Gato definitely "borrowed" Creed Taylor's production approach.

I used to have a Prestige blue label of this album, many years ago. I wasn't that into it and purged it without a second thought. Now, Eastern Sounds is one of the most desirable jazz albums among a certain set of collectors. I haven't listened to it in decades but part of me would not mind having that old copy just to cash in!

It's like the House Of Lords but less anachronistic

Always been a favourite so i guess I must be amongst  that "certain set" although do I detect a hint of disapproval of them? :)

I have a slightly noisy copy of this pressing

and hopefully not so full of dross..:D  Seriously though, looks like a nice package.

I’ll have to spin my copies of this. I think the Fontana is a factory sample but will have to check. I’ve also got an early OJC and from my recollection that sounds pretty good too.
