Philco Radio Hall Of Fame from 12/12/1943. Spotlighting the original cast of the then-new Carmen Jones, but also some standup by Frank Fay, more comedy from Red Skelton/Harriet Hilliard, Ginny Sims singing "Speak Low", orchestra conducted by Paul Whiteman, MC-ed by Deems Taylor, and more propaganda for Philco, Variety magazine, and the war effort than seems humanly possible, especially some tear-jerker thing about a love letter on microfilm. But there it all is, all that's missing is Lee Greenwood.

"The Philco Corporation - makers today of electronic battle equipment for the fighting forces of the united nations. Makers tomorrow of equipment for GOOD living, in a world United by victory."

Firesign had nothing on these guys!

Glad you liked it, Gheorghe. Re the Mobley tradition, yes I agree. The forefathers of both these guys - and Mobley too - are clearly Pres and Bird and, judging by his sound on albums, Rollins is also clearly important for Osian.  Liam names Al Cohn as his favourite tenorman and when New York-based Rossano Sportiello first heard Liam he said it was unusual and very pleasing for someone of Liam's age to adopt this style. Here's a clip of that meeting. Liam says they'd never played a note together before this. A great first meeting, I'm sure you'll agree:

 

Just wonderful both of them. They really can play. Again I hear some very nice Mobley licks, and the piano player has listened to Bud, and that short stride section is great. Some years ago, in my home district there was someone who also did kind of private house sessions at his home. He once had a club in Hamburg called "Jazz by Ralf" and I was a regular. Sorry to say it was during a period I didn´t want to perform. It was only once during a kind of repetition that I asked if I "can try the piano for a minute"  and played "Bouncin with Bud,some chorusses and that  Ralph called "I remember Clifford" and sure I played that too.

Yes, wonderful! When this clip was posted on the internet Liam was surprised to hear from some guys in Paris who invited him to join their band. I'm not surprised!

Now playing:

Yes, this was already a superb sounding album in previous versions but Mosaic did an outstanding job on their CD reissue. Woody’s finest hour in the latter part of his career, especially the Basin Street West material.
