Somehow I'm in the middle of Honkers & Screamers craze again, and listening to several old compilation CDs.

This one contains the music of Red Prysock, Charlie Singleton, Morris Lane, Red Holloway, Big Jay McNeely, Julian Dash, Noble Watts and King Curtis.  And cool jacket!

Saxomania: Honkers & Screamers

This one contains the music of Chuck Higgins, Joe Houston, Lorenzo Holden, Roy Milton, Jack McVea, Floyd Turnham, Jonesy Combo(?), Brother Woodman(?) and Jake Porter. Most of them are west coast-based I guess.

The "Special Guest" was trumpeter Randy Sandke, who also supplied all the arrangements on this 1997 CD.

The two albums in this twofer CD are among the best Tjader has made!

Keeping things in a vibes vein, but going from Mr. Tjader to Mr. Richards -- :)

Now

The roughest, but VERY exhilarating, band I've ever heard

Los Barbaros del Ritmo - Palo de Mayo - Andino 1971

 

R-14023687-1566295660-5093.jpeg.jpg

 

The band's from Bluefields, Venezuela, the centre of Palo de Mayo music. You can't not get up and dance.

'Scuse, I've gotta get up and dance.

PS Oh well, I suppose Erkey Grant and the Eerwigs, a London pub band of the early sixties, might have been rougher, but it's sixty year since I saw them.

Disc 2 of 2.  Sure, this disc has Big T and Pee Wee on hand, but one's tolerance for the vocal stylings of Red McKenzie will likely be a determining factor in the amount of enjoyment one might glean from the Dec. '44 session included here.

I'm still listening to Honkers & Screamers...

This is the worst CD jacket I know of, but music is good.  Mostly from the Vee-Jay vault.  Including Julian Dash, David Shipp Combo (incl. the legendary Porter Kilbert and the young Andrew Hill), Tommy Dean, Wardell Gray, Big Jay McNeely, Al Smith, Arnett Cobb and Nobel "Thin Man" Watts.

This one contains the music of Warren Lucky, Al King, Frank "Floorshow" Culley and Buddy Tate.
