The Complete Teddy Wilson Piano Solos (CBS/France) - LP one

brownie's mention of these recordings in the recommendations-solo piano thread moved me to take them off the shelf. They'd sat there unlistened to for too long a time - fine stuff.

Hey! It's James Moody

Hey! It's not nearly as good as I had hoped for.

Killer version of "Don't Blame Me", though.

Five bucks for a great ballad? Fair enough these days.

OK. Last night I was flippin' through some records I bought last week. Tons of good stuff. But, I came across an album that I wondered why I had bought it.

The title is "Garry Moore presents My Kind Of Music."

To me, Garry Moore was a dull guy who hosted a TV show back in the late fifties, early sixties.

The artists featured though were interesting, so I tossed it on the turntable.

Side 1's tracks have George Barnes, Wild Bill Davison, Mel Henke, Randy Hall, Ernie Caceres and Sonny Terry. Nice stuff. Good background for what I was doing, which was reading.

So, I flipped over to Side 2.

WOW!! The first track was "Yesterdays" by Wild Bill. Backed by a complete string orchestra, but Wild Bill just rose above the whole shebang and SOARED!! Absolutely roof-raising!!!

Worth the price of the album.

I then read Moore's cover notes on the track:

"In all deference to the other men, this was the side I had in mind when I started the album.

I was sitting at Condon's one night with a friend of mine, Ted Beach. We wondered at the lyric quality behind the conception of Wild Bill's choruses on the ballads. And Ted said 'How I'd love to hear that against a lush background of strings."

And at first the idea sounded a little nuts. But the more I rolled it around on my tongue the better it tasted.

And this is the proof that the idea was sound. This, I think, is one of the really great records of all time. [ed. no truer words were ever spoken about a single track. This is beautiful.] It's the whole human race wailing it's heart out - with just enough guts to still sound mad about it.

THIS one I know is great."

AMEN GARRY!!!!

Oh, and the last track has a medley, featuring everyone on the other tracks of the album and GARRY MOORE singing on "You Didn't Want Me Baby" and he is surprisingly good. But, the whole gang is there and EVERYONE has a solo. WOW!!!

FIVE DOLLARS well spent. I'm a happy chick. :D:D
