Haha I haven’t. I just make sure the LP labels are at the lower edge and the cover at the upper edge ;) awful weather here today so a good opportunity to spin some music :)

Seems to have missed us completely in Southern bits of the UK and blown across the North to your neck of the woods.

Looking outside my patio door neighbouring cats are sunbathing..😋

Maybe I should give it another spin. After all we tend to like the same things mostly :)

Yep. Seems like there's quite a bit of overlap in our jazz preference Venn diagrams.  Maybe you'll come 'round to it later.  Who knows?  Like they say, "Sometimes the magic works.  Sometimes, it doesn't."

I think that's an excellent record. More evidence that we all hear differently.  😉

I lent this to a friend having not listened to it in years. I thought it'd be right up his street. He hated it. I listened to it all the way the through this afternoon. Love it I do. It takes all sorts.

The Hellers - Singers...Talkers...Players...Swingers...& Doers (Command)

A totally whacked album!

Nice cover photo. Never heard of Skip Martin.

He was an arranger.  Not sure if we was directly connected with the show, or if the album was a promotional tie-in.

The Bill Evan Album (Columbia, 1971)

I should revisit this album.  The cover art and the Rhodes were both stumbling blocks for me.  I do like electric pianos in other contexts, though.

Yeah, that cover is wretched.

As for the music, it's never been an album that's blown me away either.  It's good -- on some days I might even say very good -- but nothing more than that. 

I really enjoy this particular BE trio (with Gomez & Morell), but I think they did their best work elsewhere.

I have this version of Ben & Sweets in my collection.

Kids in a bad mood so I'm letting them spin records to cheat them up.

First up daughter (3) with a cover she likes. PXL_20230828_111709005.jpg.04f8c901bc467551444e95e9eb47f7ff.jpg

Gone down well for a first listen.

Second up, son (5) wants the "really good one with American peoples and they're looking down at the city and it's really... beat-ey".

Some imagination and I figured it out...PXL_20230828_112205837.jpg.b51ccd2c0eb998011d1aca52e255c097.jpg

thanks for sharing the liner notes! so this would suggest that the tenorist below is Johnny Griffin provided it's the same version as here (and there's only one tenorist on the record)

edit: we'd been there years ago, not Griffin was the crowd's verdict back then
