Masayoshi Takanaka – An Insatiable High (Kitty, 1977)

R-1593314-1587776632-4911.jpg

I've just finished streaming this one:

Bengt-Arne Wallin – Old Folklore In Swedish Modern (Dux, 1962)

R-1696843-1273440745.jpg

This really hit me when I first heard it, and is doing so again. Roughly Gil Evans inspired but with other jazz and non jazz big band idioms intruding.

How is that one?

The audio isn’t the greatest but is acceptable, especially given the live club circumstances in a cramped space. I don’t think it is up to the musical standard of the first Deram album but being the very last night of Ronnie Scott’s Old Place this is all about occasion and it is captured and at an interesting point in the Westbrook story. 75 mins of music.

The Ellington influence comes across very strongly in the arrangements.

Her early and tragic passing was so sad. I can remember her during the UK stint seeing her with Keith Ingham on piano at Ronnie Scott’s.

I too remember Ronnie announcing her. I will have been at the club for the instrumental group.

He often put in a singer as well. I recall Blossom Dearie and Mark Murphy in that role too.

I’ve got the feeling that she might have been as starting act in tandem with either George Coleman or Cedar Walton’s groups. At the time, she was seen as an up and coming London based singer.

Australian singer Julie Amiet was another I saw around that time. Plus Joy Yates with Dave Macrae.

The Singers Unlimited - Masterpieces (MPS, rec. 1971-1980)
I've never been able to get much of a foothold on this group.  But I'm giving it another go with this compilation.

 

Have it beside the  MPS box with all their recordings. Love this group - one of the best among jazz vocal groups bedide the Freshmen, Hi-Lo's and Manhattan Transfer. Gene Puerlimngs arrangments are great.

78 material, with both the pros and cons thereof. Myself, I like Arnett being able to play longer. But otoh, it's band sides and that is not without its own charm.

Never heard of Gianni Brezzo (aka Marvin Horsch for his house records) but this is a good listen on this Tuesday morning.
