Roy Haynes "out of the afternoon" (impulse, mono am-par). Just picked this up for a pretty cheap price.  Now decisions have to be made..do I keep my old stereo "abc paramount" issue which is *slightly* cleaner?  The problems record nerds face...

A few more picks from my retired friends collection:

Lou Donaldson "quartet, quintet. Sextet" (blue note, Lexington)

Jutta Hipp "live at the hickory house vol.1" (blue note, Lexington) 

Kenny Burrell "introducing Kenny Burrell" (blue note, Lexington)

All 3 have marks, scuffs, and scratches but no skips and play surprisingly quite good!  These old blue notes are work horses and for $25 each I won't complain in the least considering the covers are all quite nice!

Never seen that Robert Pete Williams 45 before; have the Takoma and Prestige/Bluesville albums, both of which are excellent.

Now:

Paul Kantner - Blows Against the Empire - (RCA-Victor, clear promo edition)

Bobby Hackett - Hello Louis! Bobby Hackett Plays the Music of Louis Armstrong (Epic). A pretty interesting album from 1964, featuring tunes written by Louis, well-known and obscure. Steve Lacy is on board; this was the last time he recorded anything resembling dixieland jazz. I've read an interview in which he says that it was pretty late in the day for him to be playing stuff like this, and that he didn't play well. He solos on half the tracks, and I still think he's the most interesting soloist here except for Hackett, who plays with his usual casual excellence.

And I had never noticed until tonight that the second strain of "Gate Mouth Blues" is actually the off-color New Orleans Creole song "Kiss My F**cking Ass." It shows up a lot in New Orleans music - "Do What Ory Say," "Get It Right," "Up Jumped the Devil," etc.

I don't have the Mitchell but am quite fond of Poppin'. Actually both of the 50s Mobleys that came out in Japan are really something.

I like it. The complete Crypt set on Matchless is worth seeking out as well. And MEV is fun.

Agreed.  Though the "sonic arts Union" remains my fave of this series by far.

Looking forward to seeing MEV live in Vancouver in November!!

Yes, the Sonic Arts Union is the best thing in that series indeed.

Saw MEV here in NY a few years ago. I was glad to experience it, but felt like the music didn't have as much verve as in decades past (long before I would've had the opportunity to see/hear them). On the other hand, I saw Richard Teitelbaum and Hugh Davies in concert about 15 years ago and it was superb.

Davies and Teitelbaum together?  Lucky you!  I'm afraid Vancouver does not quite match up to New York in terms of amount of cool shows :(

Apparently MEV will be returning to the "reckless abandonment" of their early years for this show - that's what the promo blurb says anyways - so I'm looking forward to how that goes.

Benny Golson night:

Benny Golson "the other side of" (riverside, mono USA DG)

Benny Golson "the modern touch" (riverside, mono USA DG)

Benny Golson "gone with Golson" (New Jazz, USA DG)

Manny Albam----A Gallery of Gershwin-----(Coral)

 

Really only the reason I picked this up was to hear more Eddie Costa. He's one of 4 pianists - Hank Jones being the most notable. Some tracks feature all four pianists with orchestral backing. It's pretty soporific as a whole but Eddie Costa's wonderful lower register runs are something else. The record itself seems very brittle and I'm guessing probably isn't actually vinyl.

Funny thing about this record is that on most copies the labels are switched, so that many listeners who know AMM and MEV only from this LP, will have a complete wrong idea about the music of both groups.
