^That's making me want to dig out my copy of Not Two, Not One which was one of my favorite Bley discs (and also features Peacock prominently).




but playing now:

Enjoying these 2:



Nice and mellow - perfect for slothing around the house on a lazy Saturday :)

waited over a month for my order (at a marketplace vendor's) to arrive, so straight into the player it goes:


contains the albums "The Sweet Life" (1972) and "The Cisco Kid" (1974)

Claudio Fasoli (ts, ss), Kenny Wheeler (t, flh), Jean-François Jenny Clark (b) - wonderful album, rec. 1988

(be warned though, the Nueva NC 1002 edition, Milano, 1990, distr. Nuova Fonit Cetra, is bronzed and all three copies I have by now - the third from Mr. Fasoli himself - seem to be in slow decline, with the final tracks unplayable ... a friend helped me out with a burn of the Innowo/New Sound Planet version, that one distr. Novo Records ... weird, but that one seems to be okay indeed)

From 1964 (but unreleased until 81(?) )



The title track (first track) makes you pay attention to what is coming out of your speakers due mainly to Art Blakey's drumming.  However, after this, the album falls into what I consider a fairly forgetful set of mediocrity.  Might have worked out better if Blakey would have been in charge of the whole thing.

some more Paul Bley ... stacked up a few of his fine Steeplechase trio albums a few years ago, when I wrote something about Bley ... and never really came around playing them all that often so far

I actually know that one already ... have had a rip for some years and seized the day when I saw the offer ... I love Wardell Gray, even spent 35 or 40 bucks on a special Japanese release of material by this very Goodman combo featuring him.

Just dumped in my wishlist.  I have some of Goodman's Yale recordings and love the bit more obscure live stuff from him, especially into the 50's and 60's.  Even though this is '48,would love to give it a go and net some initiation into Gray's sound.  Thanks!

Oh, I thought you knew it ... it's the small group Goodman co-led with young swedish clarinet player Stan Hasselgard and which features Gray as well. This was Goodman's short flirtation with bop (which can also be heard on the Capitol disc "Undercurrent Blues", Gray is there, too, on a few tracks, and there's of course the one track recorded with Fats Navarro as well). Gray was sort of a proto-mainstream guy, fitting with swing as well as with bop without having to alter his style in the least bit. I adore his playing be it in his own studio recordings or in rough jam sessions alongside Dexter Gordon and others. Very, very sad he died so early (and under what horrendous circumstances).

As for Goodman himself, I'm not that big a fan (I guess if I had to, I'd pick Artie Shaw) but I love his trio/quartet sides with Teddy Wilson/Gene Krupa and Lionel Hampton from the late thirties, and there's so much music in his long career that there are good things aplenty really - the Carnegie Hall concert 1938, these sides with Wardell Gray, the band he took to the USSR, the jam session with Count Basie and Lester Young ... I still need his Mosaic box though, I've got a cheapo box somewhere but it's so foogly I really never listen to anything from it.

I'd forgotten what a big-name lineup this has:

Stan Getz – tenor saxophone
Chick Corea – electric piano
Stanley Clarke – bass
Airto Moreira – percussion
Tony Williams – drums

That's an all-star lineup for sure! - what did you think of the album Simon?

That is a great album. I love Ike Quebec. He's nice and smooth but never boring.
