There's always more Herbie Mann albums and you never know whether or not they will be excellent, terrible or average.

Yep.  Mann is like Chick Corea in that regard.  They're both prolific, and consistency isn't exactly their forte.

Schlippenbach Quartett - Das Hohe Lied [Po Torch Records, Germany 1991]

I've been rediscovering my collection of Schlippenbach Trio/Quartet albums. A marvellous group.

So good.

Mann's 'Stone Flute' (1970) may be his answer to Miles' 'Silent Way'. 

The Mann had an answer to everything.

I agree.  Whenever I listen to it, I'm surprised (again) that BN didn't want to issue it.

Regarding Woody's unissued Blue Note date, the story goes that Alfred Lion recorded several sessions for release on Blue Note but before he could get them out, he sold the business to Liberty. Since the deal did not include these recent dates, they were in some sort of limbo, so Lion gave the masters to the artists. I would think that if the deal didn't happen or if the deal had been structured differently, they would have issued this themselves.

O.K., that makes sense.  Thanks for the insight.  :tup

With Ron Carter, and regulars Sharrock, Miroslav, and Roy Ayers and cellos and violins.  It's spacey, not beat-driven with radio hit potential.

 

I saw Herbie's band at The Cellar Door very soon after this was released.  (Early 1970?)

They all pulled out their sheet music to play Waltz for My Son.

EmArCy [Japan] EXPR-1006 - Herb Geller Sextette - rec. 1955

"Crazy he Calls me" is a wonderful ballad like all ballads originally sung by Billie Holiday. We play it quite often and it is fine in D-flat, the key Lady Day sung it. 
It seams that it is not played very often. I heard Gary Bartz-Buster Williams-Al Foster do it, but I think they did it in F .

I would like to add to your collection this one Spontanuity | Allan Praskin Quintet | Allan Praskin (bandcamp.com)

It´s a wonderful version of that ballad and I also have played it with Allan Praskin earlier this year. Here it is in Db as I told you. 
Allan is my favourite alto saxophonist, my idol since 1978 and though I never was a student, his musical advices or just listenig to him on the bandstand is my most beautiful experiences.....

Thanks for the recommendation.  Dont have records with Praskin as leader  but have heard his name here and then together with other european recordings.

He is also member in the Vaclav Zahradnik big band from CSSR which I have. But that is all I can remember.

Really ? But since his move to Europe (first Germany, since it was Gunter Hampel who brought him to Europe) he has been one of the most busy jazzmen over here, with enthusiastic write ups in Jazz Podium and other press. 

It would be almost impossible to not have heard his name and seen him play in the most famous jazz venues of Germany, Austria and many many other European countries. 
He was our hero here in Vienna, when he played with the best guys, no one could play bop as well as avantgarde with such dexterity and musical enthusiasm like him. 
And last not least he was the first important jazz man, with whom I had the honour to play and still do on several occasions. And he was one of the best educators, teachin´ jazz at Bruckner conservatorium in Linz.... look out for him he really burns...... look at least at some video stuff on youtube or whereever......

b) I like that you say CSSR. Those were the days when I still could know which country where is, I performed at some jazz festival still in CSSR and other Eastern European countries as well. But I didn´t know that Allan played there.
