Stanley Turrentine – Return Of The Prodigal Son (the June 23 & July 28, 1967 sessions)

Louis Smith – Smithville (first time in stereo with two bonus tracks)

Bobby Hutcherson – Head On (includes three previously unissued tracks)

Art Farmer – Brass Shout (includes Aztec Suite)

Dizzy Gillespie & James Moody with Gil Fuller & The Monterey Jazz Festival Orchestra (includes Moody's Night Flight album)

You know the drill.... use the links to support Organissimo.

Presently CDU has all but the Smith listed as Imports and consequently priced higher. I'll contact their customer service and get them straightened out like with the last batch of RVGs.

What's the story on that Moody/Gillespie album?

WOW...I can't WAIT for the Turrentine! Hell of a batch.

here's the cover for "Night Flight", the Moody/Fuller Monterey one - I've once heard a needle drop of it, remember it as pretty fine:

A great batch. It is unfortunate that the Brass Shout/Aztec Suite didn't come out earlier. This looks almost exactly like a Gambit release (out for about a year), with the same cover even, so it will confuse some people. I have Head On, but with the bonus tracks, I'll almost certainly get the new release. Looks like May will be an expensive month. :cool:

At least this version of the Art Farmer will be legit, and in better sound.

The Smith is a great one. Can anyone fill me in on the Turrentine? I see the song list. Was this the "Plays the Pop Hits" album? Sorry, no discography at-hand.

I'm curious as to what Head On is like?

I am/was too. I've been diggin' around on-line for some sound clips or full-length cuts, and I think I've found one long clip (actually two from the same tune, I think).

If you have a flash player loaded on your PC, it should auto-play when the page loads (the player is the widget at the top center of the page).

The clip(s) appear to be two 45-second segments of the last tune from the original album: Clockwork Of The Spirits.

Interesting...

The Turrentine is the companion issue to "A bluish bag". The two CDs contain all of the tracks issued on the LPs "New time shuffle" and sides 1 & 2 of "Stanley Turrentine" (the black twofer), plus (on "Bluish") the non-rejected cuts from an unissued session of 9 June '67 and (on "Prodigal") four (inc 1 alt take) of the seven cuts from an unissued session of 28 July 1967 - the last session Alfred Lion supervised.

These are excellent sessions with incredibly tasty Duke Pearson charts. Stan is the primary soloist but there are nice moments for everyone else involved. But Stan's mastery and Pearson's excellent arrangements are the real stars here.

Thanks for finding/posting that. Interesting indeed. If the entire album has that vibe, I'm definitely picking this one up!

The Smith is a great one.

The whole batch looks interesting.

So far I have been unable to convince CDUniverse that listing (and pricing) these items as IMPORTS is a mistake.

Should anyone else care to point out the mistake to CDUniverse you can do so with this link. Perhaps if they get a few more inquiries about it they'll respond.

Listed Correctly

==========================

PID=7662548: Louis Smith - Smithville

Listed as Imports

==========================

PID=7661317: Stanley Turrentine - Return Of The Prodigal Son

PID=7657714: Bobby Hutcherson - Head On

PID=7662545: Art Farmer - Brass Shout

PID=7662863: Dizzy Gillespie & James Moody with Gil Fuller - The Monterey Jazz Festival Orchestra

Nope. They are going to have to get reports of the error from more people before they take notice. Even then the customer service reps only know what the computer tells them and if the computer is wrong...

Here is a link to the customer support page.

For reference. The PIDs are the CDU product ID#s.
