Kirsten Edkins - Shapes & Sound (Cohearent). I picked this up mainly after listening to a few sound samples. It's OK but I'm not sure about all the hype it got just because it was Kevin Gray's new label.

I still scratch my head on that title & cover.

I don't mind the cover but the title is a bit odd, considering...

Red Garland - Strike Up The Band (Galaxy). Red with a pretty good band: George Coleman, Julian Priester, Ron Carter & Ben Riley.

If you find this in a cheapie bin, give it a try. About the only negative is the lousy bass recording quality, which you'll get with most recordings from 1979.

Oh, those Garland albums on Galaxy came out when I was playin already , so maybe I didn´t have the time anymore to buy many records or might have thought I already have one or two 50´s Garland LPs, whatever. 

But now I regret I didn´t buy them. Sounds like a dream team with that line up, all of them favourites of mine. 
In that year 1979 I had seen Ron Carter with Ben Riley and Kenny Barron !!!! 

The "lousy" bass recording sound you describe, may have been just Ron´s style, he was THE acoustic bass player of the 70´s and that bass sound was the sound a bass had . Acustic purists might have found it ugly and would prefer let´s say Ray Brown, but that was the times and I must admit I still like it on those 70´s records. 
There were many Galaxy albums that would have interested me. I think it was also some Sadao Watanabe with Hank Jones, Ron Carter and Tony Williams, and so on....., the only Galaxy I have is "Return of the Griffin".

I'm pretty sure that most jazz recordings with an acoustic bass that were recorded in the late 70s-mid 80's used pickup with a direct patch to the soundboard instead of a microphone. This gives the bass a twangy sound that just doesn't sound right.

oh this is very interesting and might be for more discussion on the topic I have opened about Ron Carter in the Artists category.
