Yes; I never even heard of Gleam back in the day until I read about it here. It was basically unavailable until Wounded Bird reissued it.

Beat Goes On has it as a 2 cd set now, probably sounds better than the Wounded Bird.

Loved these performances since they saw release as Mole Jazz vinyl .... and always will ....

I will always regret the fact that I missed that gig, although I did see his appearance afterwards at RFH, which was memorable. Can’t recall why I missed it !

Actually went to a *record store* and found this one in the used cd racks. Lots of fun!

I recall Alan Barnes saying that as a student at Leeds College of Music he made the trip to Scott's to hear the master.

Perhaps that's why many years later he named an album The Art Trip.

Interesting !

I only got to hear his solo rendition of ‘Over The Rainbow’ at that George Wein ‘Year of the Bird’ concert but it was memorable. The rest of the lineup - Gillespie, John Lewis, Freddie Hubbard, John Lewis, Lee Konitz, Slam Stewart, Roy Haynes, Curtis Fuller - and those are just the ones I remember !

Herbie Hancock "Speak Like a Child" 24 bit by RVG Japan Blue Note cd (sort of gatefold cover!)

R-395084-1328723461.jpeg.jpg

Just arrived in the mail within a lot of 12 24 bit by RVG cds I won via auction. More duplicates than I would like, but I did get titles I really wanted, this one included, at a good price. And will have four to add to the sell pile.

Forgot to mention the Brecker Brothers as well. Playing bebop !

I think James Moody was also on the bill. Possibly also Milt Jackson but not sure. There was also a UK rhythm section.

Updated - Just found the JJI review. No Milt and Moody but Clark Terry and Kai Winding were included (Kai duetting with Curtis). The UK rhythm section was John Critchinson, Ron Mathewson and Martin Drew i.e. the Ronnie’s house team of that time. 

The RFH venue was last minute. It was originally scheduled for Ally Pally, which burnt down a few days before !

Now that's one I missed - the Miles quintet with Stitt at the FreeTrade Hall, Manchester in 1960. I think it was during the university vacation and I was at home in Leeds. Fellow student (later jazz critic of the London Evening Standard) the late Jack Massarik told me he was there.

Lou Donaldson "Alligator Boogaloo" 24 bit by RVG Blue Note Japan cd

Alligator_Bogaloo.jpg

What a band! The leader is so soulful but never far from bebop, that adds a special layer to his work with organ trios in my book. 


Lou Donaldson - alto saxophone
Melvin Lastie - cornet
Lonnie Smith - organ
George Benson - guitar
Leo Morris (Idris Muhammad) - drums
