I was at this February 1958 concert at the Dominion Theatre London.   The Couriers were the support band for the Dave Brubeck Quartet.  My first jazz concert.

Woow, lucky you! Awesome way to get in touch with live jazz!

That LP must have been one of the Tempo label’s best sellers, TAP 22 I think. Rare example of one of their releases being reissued on the ‘Music For Pleasure’ label and thereby purchasable at Woolworths !

It has moments of incredible intensity, balanced with lyrical passages and some pretty funny musical satire.

Thanks or the comment Jeff. My memory has failed me completely here.   Well worth pulling out.  But then this board is great for this sort of thing.  I've pulled out dozens of recordings inspired by this topic  over the years which would otherwise still be languishing on my shelves unplayed for goodness knows how long.

Some records are so complex i have to listen twice. This is a very experimental but good recording.

My first was in '57 in Leeds Town Hall with Lyttelton's controversial (among the traddies) new band with a saxophone section of Tony Coe, Jimmy Skidmore and Joe Temperley. I saw them again in the same venue touring with Jimmy Rushing and later Sister Rosetta Tharpe.

Was it on that one that Ronnie announced an album called "Elvis Presley Meets Thelonious Monk"? :D

A bit of googling reveals that, yes, it was at the Dominion Theatre concert that Ronnie said, "And now from a brand new LP which you may have seen in the shops, entitled Elvis Presley Sings Thelonious Monk ..." 

Ronnie the incomparable! :lol:

Incidentally, it was at a Manchester club called the Bodega that I saw the Jazz Couriers in the autumn of 1958.

The only other group I recall seeing at that venue was led by Wally Fawkes with Lennie Felix on piano. When I asked Lennie if he'd play "My Monday Date", he exclaimed, "You've been listening to Earl!" and took off with gusto.

So, quite broad listening tastes as an 18 year old!

That Elvis story is in Simon Spillett’s excellent Tubby Hayes bio I think. Just been re-reading it.
