Woody Herman - Herd at Montreux (Fantasy, 1974)

Continuing my recent exploration of WH's 1970s recordings for Fantasy. I think this live album is a shade less convincing than the studio LPs from around the same time. There's no problem with the band's playing. I'm just not as keen on the repertoire.

I have another record on that label. They seem to have a bit of a catalog, all of it being local/ Midwestern trad bands.

If one had the means and the inclination, one could probably get a really good picture of that particular sub-subset.

That might be fun? 

 

Blackbird owner Leon Kelert was an electrical engineer and a friend of mine. I used his union labor agreement to record my first recording session. He and I recorded the "The Chase" by Jug and Dexter for Fantasy. After his passing, Bob Koester purchased the catalog from Leon's sister.

More can be seen HERE.

I have a Blackbird 45 by Little Brother Montgomery!

Actually I`m not a fan of "jazzified" Classical Music, but the Mal Waldron Trio nails it here .... btw sort of companion album to "Breaking New Ground" ....

Yeah that one is awesome as well.

You can’t go wrong with the Terry Waldo stuff, imo. Those are the only Blackbird records I know.

I think the Blackbird LP I got came as an "extra" with my order of several Mosaic sets from the post-JRM Koester site. It was a fun record, whatever one it was. 

Thanks!

Charles Brackeen with Charlie Haden, Don Cherry and Ed Blackwell.

This was one of my favourite records when I was a teenie. I had it on tape, since the LP was so rare and a guy I knew had a lotta stuff from that style, I first heard this, and Don Cherry´s "Complete Communion", had them both on a 90 minutes cassette .

Also the other LP you showed us: "Jackie McLean - One Step Beyond". 

The guy who let me listen to it and tape it on cassette was no one less than the great late Fritz Novotny, the founder and leader of the first Austrian Free Jazz/Avantgarde formation "Reform Art Unit" ("RAU") . 

It was so wonderful times, guys who just lived that music, and my strong connections to Free Jazz, a style that still was very fresh when I started to listen to jazz. Electric was brandnew, and still a lot of acoustic Free Jazz. Wonderful times and so much to learn . I couldn´t else than absorb all that stuff.....

Eric Dolphy - Out To Lunch (Blue Note/Music Matters). I should have sold these Music Matters LPs when the prices were still insanely high. :)

Such a great record, and Eric Dolphy was the first alto saxophonist the really impressed me when I heard him on record in my early teens.

Harold Land Quintet 'The Peacemaker' (Cadet/Third Man)

Nicely presented reissue and sounding pretty good. Certainly beats those All-Platinum paper cover thin vinyl reissues of this which were (very) occasionally seen in the racks back in the day.

I even quite like the Donald Bailey harmonica on side 1, track 2.

Booker Ervin - That's It! (Candid/Barnaby). I'd only ever seen this Barnaby version on LP and one time I got to chatting with Jack at Stereo Jack's where he assured me the audio was very good. He was right. It just looks like some kind of bootleg or grey market release but it does sound fine. Crazy story on the Barnaby label. Born out of one pop star's desire to buy his back catalog. Thanks Andy Williams. :)

If you have a copy of the 33 rpm Music Matters LP of Morgan's "Search For The New Land", I'll swap you straight up. :)

It's one of the few (only?) Music Matters LPs I didn't get that I regret today.

Didn't do the 33s but I have a set of the 45s. Have a good mono orig of 'Search' so happy to stick with that.
