Ace ! :tup

This one took quite some time to grow on me. It really is an ace . I've got a TOCJ CD, a Toshiba vinyl and a Liberty RVG pressing - I like it so much. FWIW the Liberty just edges the Toshiba but in reality the CD is also just fine sounding.

Humphrey Lyttelton - Jazz at the Royal Festival Hall (Parlophone 10" LP)

Later: I love Bruce Turner's alto playing. Lyttelton and Wally Fawkes also sound good.

One of the first jazz records I bought - in 1957! By the time I got to see Lyttelton play he was infuriating the "traddies" by playing superb Kansas City jazz with a saxophone section of Tony Coe, Jimmy Skidmore and Joe Temperley. I saw them on a tour with Jimmy Rushing.

The chandelier would not survive :rolleyes:

Now listening to (after the record was mentioned in a thread earlier today):

Debut Records 'Autobiography in Jazz' (Debut, mono)

autobiography1.JPG

A not very good copy that still carries a $1,98 price tag from the Princeton Record Exchange that remains unremovable in contrast with the Debut labels that unglued in typical Debut fashion! Mingus and Roach should have purchased their glue from the PRE stock!

The album was also priced $1,98 (Fed. Tax Included) when it came out!

Around 1962 a federal tax was cancelled and all the .98 prices dropped to .79 for lps.

Last night and this morning:

Teddy Wilson - On Tour (Charlie Parker). Lo-fi tapes, great playing.

Muggsy Spanier and His Orchestra (Jazum). Even lower-fi - broadcasts recorded by a microphone held in front of an AM radio speaker in 1953.

Edit: paranoid, smart-ass comment removed.

Now spinning Tony Kinsey's "An Evening With Tony Kinsey "Mr. Percussion"". Some great Tubby Hayes on tenor & flute here.

If you're interested in a new copy of this LP, be forewarned that it is a limited edition of 500 pressings.

I like Lol. Once saw him play a solo concert in a student cafeteria filled with dozens of candles. I think there were about six of us in the audience. Another time with a band playing straight bebop (much better attended!).

One of the least commercial musicians I've come across. Frequrntly just stops mid performance because he's run out of ideas or got bored and just starts something else.

Missed this tour though:

This is a great survey of his music from 1954-99:
