Kenny Burrell - Up the Street, 'Round the Corner, Down the Block (Fantasy, 1974)

This one should be reissued too.  Strange that it hasn't been already.

That was the album he was touring with the first time I saw him. His band, too, not a local pickup group. La Bastille in Houston (RIP). Yes, I saw Richard Wyands about a month after graduating high school! And had no idea who hey was, except that he was in Kennyy Burrell's band. And I remembered the name, couldn't do that with any of the others, though. Return with us now to the golden days of yesteryear etc.

Burrell's 70s Fantasy output is all strong, and apart from the Ellington sides, all of a piece. I shudder to think about how all 5 (minus the Ellington records) are all going to come to market, but legit pop labels have no problem packaging 5 LPs of 30-40 minute (or less!) duration into 5 CDs with original album packaging and seeing them for enough to get by on.

He probably played better "jazz" before and after, but that run from Argo/Cadet-CTI-Verve-Fantasy made for better records (except maybe Verve, but Creed Taylor did him right, finally, on CTI). If there was to be a next-gen Mosaic, one that was less concerned about the old traditions than the new, developing ones, that would make for a good steamer trunk, especially if you start at Columbia (and maybe you should!). Just very...listenable records for most all levels of audience.

Are you finding these w/o too much effort? I know I used to see Edison 78s in the bins reasonably often, but never anybody like Fletcher Henderson!

There are at least 5 extant recordings of him playing it in clubs and dances according to the NEW DESOR. but the only easily found is from the Cotton Club in 1938.

It is on the 2 cd Storyville Cotton Club set.  BTW Volume 1 of the Masters of Jazz Ellington series has a piano roll of Jig Walk they incorrectly attribute to him.

Strut have done a fine job on this facsimile release with an informative booklet. Very much a time capsule but in a very good way.

Currently spinning nothing. My turntable has just given up the ghost. Oh well. All flesh is grass. Time for the wake.

Still thinking it through. The fact is my old one was a fairly cheap starter ProJect and, sentimentality aside, it is time to level up. Probably going to go for a direct drive option. Any recommendations welcome, as I am no tech expert.

perhaps it is time to start getting acquainted with the Steve Hoffman crowd…

Rega or Linn would be my recommendation. With Rega you can start more basic at e.g. Planar 3 and work up the range. I’ve used a Linn LP12 for many years and swear by it - wonderfully upgradeable but you could start with the core ‘Basik’.
