1936-1937

Love MBRB but wasn't expecting much from this-was I ever wrong!  Take away the awful vocals on 5 or 6 tunes and everything swings.

Chip White - Music and Lyrics: I was reminded today to pull this one out upon learning of White's death last month.  I haven't listened to it much over the years, but I am enjoying it; it's a shame that it took his passing to revisit it.  A drummer/poet who writes several albums of music and lyrics is a rare breed.  He brought in some heavy hitters for his recordings, too.

No, it's just a straight reissue of a 2 LP set of RCA alternate material.

Early Eric and v nice too!

More accurately should have been called Harold Mabern Quartet featuring Eric Alexander as Harold is fantastic here 27 years ago. I guess that, understandably, some of the intensity had gone in his final years.

Bill Dixon - Tapestries for Small Orchestra (Firehouse 12, 2019)

I haven't listened to this one for a while, and I had forgotten how good it is. Five ethereal trumpets gliding over and through a swamp of bass clarinet, cello, double bass and marimba.

Perhaps more work might have been done on the rather generic cover.

This is a fine recording. Terell Stafford is especially strong.
