Thanks for hipping me to that album.  Are The Next Album and Easy Living it for Sonny on soprano?  Any clarinet on record?

Now playing:

Motohiko Hino - Sailing Stone: After getting to In Japan on the Joe Henderson Milestone box, I decided that this would be next.

No clarinet. Don't know that Sonny ever played clarinet, even as a kid.

Maybe some soprano on Horn Culture? Can't recall offhand, that one's never done much for me.

There is Lyricon on a few tracks, but I'm not going to be responsible for pointing anybody to them. :g

Next Album is really, really good after you get past the opening cut.

Listening to "Artworks," the second disc  in the Art Pepper "Promise Kept" box set of the complete Artist House recordings.

Nice clarinet playing!

Hey, the first cut ain't bad.  I imagine that it may have been the intended single with it being a fun, funky opener.  George Cables, Bob Cranshaw and Jack DeJohnette lay it down.  'Skylark', with its unaccompanied intro and long cadenza, is worth the price of admission alone.

(I edited my original post because the name of the Sonny album is Easy Living, not The Good Life.)

Now playing:

Even my 51-year-old ears can hear a HUGE difference between this CD that I just received in the mail and the YouTube version that I'd been listening to.

Norma Winstone is such a wonderful singer.  Garrick's run with her from Heart of a Lotus (1970) to Home Stretch Blues (1972) to Troppo (1974) is one helluva purple patch.  All terrific.  Throw the trio record Cold Mountain (1972) in there, and IMO you've got one of the very best jazz runs of the early 1970s. 

Who knew?  Not me -- until just a couple years ago.

Those  Vocalion/Argo Garricks are great.

For the ‘adventurous’, include in there the jazz oratorio ‘Mr Smith’s Apocolypse’.
