One of my favourites from Horace Parlan. It came out the same time I saw him live. Me and my then girlfried set in the front row and at some point Horace Parlan spotted us and said with a sly grin "the next tune is "Like Someone in Love" .....

Very great trio here, I saw Jesper Lundgard first with the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Bigband.....
Danny Richmond of course many many times, he is one of my favourites.
I love that trio, since it´s not like other trios, it really works together and you can HEAR the drummer, which is most important for me. 

When I saw Horace Parlan, his bassist was Isla Eckinger, another very very fine european bassist from Elvetia, and maybe Fritz Ozmec on drums....

Disc 3 of 4, which covers the period from 1950 to 1954.  I absolutely love Jo Stafford and take every opportunity to extol her virtues.  This disc certainly displays her versatility, featuring her renditions of everything from "Peace In The Valley", to standards such as "Blue Skies", to novelty tunes such as "Chow Willy".  There are a number of pleasant but forgettable, "also ran" tunes from those days gone by.  Ms. Stafford still handles them with her trademark grace and style.  Among the highlights of this disc:

Don't Get Around Much Anymore --   A nice reminder that as a big band singer, Ms. Stafford was simply one of the best.  Also serves as a pleasant contrast to her later recording of this song as Darlene Edwards.

That's The One For Me -- A duet with Frankie Laine, which sounds kind of like Capitol was trying out a modified Louis & Keely thing with them.  There sure seems to be a Keelyesque style to Ms. Stafford's approach to this song.

Our Love Is Here To Stay -- Forget about songs, they don't even write tempos like this anymore.  I like the gentle little flourish Paul Weston adds at the end.

I'm Always Chasing Rainbows -- Beautiful.  Very effective string arrangement by Mr. Weston.

Hasn’t pretty well all of those boxes been reissued on various Rearward reissues by now (excluding the still MIA ‘Out Of The Folk Bag’ - what happened to that?)

Intresting question. Have to check that with my recent Rearward / Schema CDs against the 2  Campi boxes.

 Will be a bit of work. Well it was easy. Except "Off Limits"  (Rearward 115 CD) which is also on on the box Blowing the Cobwebs out I have not found any other tracks on CD's. 

Have on Rearward / Schema  CD 105 (with Carl Drewo / CD 119  Shib Shihab /  CD 123 Johnny Griffin / CD 125  Swing, Waltz with Carl Drewo. These CD tracks are not on the boxes.

"Out Of The Folk Bag" is missing here

Almost all my other KC-FB are on vinyl + on some CD compilations (MPS/Universal)

Gary Smulyan with Strings (Criss Cross). At first I didn't care for it; Smulyan's often harsh-edged tone didn't seem right for ballads, but I warmed to it after fiddling with tone controls and lowering the volume some. Too bad, though, that only a few of the tunes are familiar to me, and one that is, "Lush Life," I never want to hear as an instrumental again.
