Art Farmer/Jim Hall; Big Blues. CTI (UK pressing)

Slick CTI production and possibly inappropriate drummer notwithstanding, I've always had a weakness for the album. Glad to see that someone else likes it.

Very slick but nice. Like you I've never taken to Gadd's rather stiff drumming. Better here than elsewhere maybe?

I agree. Not an expert on S. Gadd, but I like his playing here more than about anything I've heard.

Shelly Manne: 2-3-4 (Impulse/MCA Japan)

I'm probably in a minority here, but this record has never come across for me. It's always seemed more like something put together by a producer than a musician's record.

And Manne's playing seems contrived some of the time, as if he had to assert his presence because he was the leader.

A few good moments, but not a success.

Jimmy Rushing 'Goin' to Chicago' (Vanguard)

with Pat Jenkins, Henderson Chambers, Buddy Tate, Sammy Price, Walter Page, Jo Jones!

Joe Jones Special (Vanguard)

with Emmett Berry, Benny Green, Lucky Thompson, Nat Pierce, Freddie Greene, Walter Page and Count Basie as guest artist!

That Jo Jones Special is just beautiful. Have the French Vanguard/FNAC reissue of it. A great series!

Now spinning:
