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

I like that one. I wish I could connect with Foster's 70s big band work a bit more. Tried several times and just can't get into it -- and certainly I'd say it's my ears, not his charts or the recordings.

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)

Yeah, I always try to do that, but this time I added the picture of the back cover as well.
(the description has those liners too, so they may be easier to read than the pic...)

I think this archival recording -- recorded in 1977 but only released in 2007 -- is probably Foster's best with his Loud Minority Band:

Perhaps it might make for an easier path into his music? 

If you haven't heard it already . . .

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

Yeah, Agharta ! Miles sounded so good until 1981 or so and started to sound so boring as the 80´s went on........ (oh my God, that silly bridge on "Perfect Way" sounds like "Kaufhaus-Musik von den 80er Jahren" 🤑

Prysock in Philly International mode.  He even opens the album with a Gamble & Huff tune.

 

I never had heard that name, but was astonished that this picture looks exactly like Mr. B when he became more commercially and had said good bye to bop......

Agharta is one of the first MD records with which I really connected. Also the first album I heard on vinyl.

Good entry ! That´s how it was. All we boys at hi school wanted to "play Miles Davis", buying huge sunglasses, bendin down and mimicking a wah wah trumpet, he was Mr. Super Cool. I was lucky I could manage both of it. The acoustic with Trane or with Wayne Shorte, as much as the early electric and the post 73 stuff. Saw him with "Lieb" at Stadthalle Vienna.

Funny that you mention Eckstine.  He was definitely a big influence on Prysock.

this double LP contains some of the best Coltrane I know. Songs like Living Space (that Tyner solo 😮) and Feelin Good. You could hardly believe it wasn’t released immediately. Of course all of it was later added as bonus tracks on the Impulse! CD’s and Living Space was a release on itself. Those were among my first jazz cd’s and I still cherish this music.

Sounds like Vienna back then was a wee bit different to here. Most people my age had never heard of Miles Davis. The aspiration was either to wear loon pants and doc martens  or jean jackets with Motörhead on the back !

The Bay Big Band – Plays Duke Ellington

part of the Brussels world exhibition that also gave us the Atomium? Not quite sure, but the cover photo (by Ray Avery it says?!) is from the Belgian Congo Pavillion at the Brussels world fair... I guess the underlying story is that Belgian jazz musicians' expertise in playing Afro-American music had some of its roots Belgium's involvement in Congo? Those were different times... And, of course, despite the stereo sound, I guess you only need this if you are the most hopeless type of Ellington completist... the band is good, most of the musicians can also be heard on Jack Sels recordings from the time... but Ellington is impossible to cover well with a bunch of studio heroes
