Excellent! It's "one" for Shirley...

There's no bassist on it, and she had a free hand in the personnel and program selection.

It's a beautiful record, in every way.

According to Gilles Peterson she didn't like the cover picture though, so probably didn't have a hand in that. Hence a new one for the reissue.

Yes, l think it's Steppin out. And I also have it as a TOCJ.

Haven't played it myself in a long while. Probably couldn't find it right now, what with the flat move of a couple of years ago. But that I haven't played it doesn't mean it's no good. More that I don't know where it is :blink:. And I remember it being an interesting souljazz thing.

That one also looks interesting. With lots of West Coast players.

Gilles Peterson is also behind this reissue? The reissue projects he gets behind usually are quite interesting.

Yes. Arc is his new reissue label. This its second release.

Someone sent a CDR of this one many year ago, excellent that it will be available much more widely.

(And I am really unclear on the "One For Me" title as it seemed to me very one-of-a-piece with her other recordings. Maybe she meant, if this sells, I'm getting the money, so One for Me?)

Yeah, Strata-East handled distribution but the artists had to put up finished recordings & production costs, and controlled everything down to the look of the record jacket. So it really would have been her album.

I'd rather want a proper CD reissue of On A Clear Day or Latin Shadows.

The pre-order is a pretty sweet deal, so I took the plunge.  Only a few more days and we'll get the rest of the tracks.  :)

Yeah, on the last track and it's a very spare utilization, mostly for atmospheric effect

Fair enough, but I don't like the look of this one, looks like an ersatz Blue Note photocoverthing.

I ordered it anyway. Helluva DAMN good record.

This is great! Shirley Scott climbed up several steps on my admiration ladder with this.She swings so much! And I like Vick here much better than on his Blue Note LP, which kinda disappointed me.

At least they attempted to retain the original typeface ...
