Looks interesting!  What are your first impressions, Ken?


I enjoyed it, though I wasn't a fan of the electric piano on one track.

Found at McKay's for just $3.95.



I also found these CDs for $2.95 each in the same trip where I acquired the Sonny Fortune mentioned earlier.

Both have great sound, though Billie Holiday's set is interrupted twice by flyovers from the nearby air force base.

The Individualism of Gil Evans

This was my first Gil Evans LP so long ago.  It still works for me.

Not really sure that Leonard Feather's production choices are the best, but there's not a whole helluva lot of Vi Redd on record, so....oh well. She definitely brought the flayva. Maybe there's a lost set of tapes of her doing a club date or something. I would love to hear her like that.

Posted a few pages back by another listener, Dave Stryker's As We Are.

Giving this one another go and really enjoying it. The string quartet is made up of Marika Hughes on cello, Benni von Gutzeit on viola, and 2 violins from Monica K. Davis & Sara Caswell; with the latter providing several solos throughout. Great compositions and a tranquil mood setting :tup Notes say that Julian Shore did the arrangements for the strings, which makes sense as most of their accents seem to follow the piano.
