VERVE/COPACABANA VMLP 14013



Reviews: Dizzy Gillespie (with altoist Leo Wright, pianist Lalo Schfrin, bassist Bob Cunningham and drummer Chuck Lampkin) were in peak form for this live performance. Their versions of 'Kush', 'Salt Peanuts' and 'The Mooche' are all excellent, but it is 'A Night in Tunisia', with its absolutely stunning trumpet break (which lasts half a chorus), that is most memorable.
--
In Verve's Master Edition series you can get the masterful 1961 album 'An Electrifying Evening with the Dizzy




reel-to-reel tape VERVE VSTC 275

Gillespie Quintet'. Recorded at the Museum of Modern Art, New York City, the album shows Gillespie and his Quintet at their best. In comparison with the Oscar Peterson album 'Very Tall', it is avantgarde. Peterson's album represents the musical universe of the 50s. A world at peace with itself, happy, optimistic and entertaining. The Gillespie Quintet presents less harmonious tunes and a world less balanced. After the demise of the State Department big band in 1958, Gillespie was back in the familiar configuration of the classic bebop quintet.

Review: This unusual session consists of a complex six-movement suite by J. J. Johnson featuring Dizzy Gillespie's trumpet over a brass choir (6 trumpets, 2 trombones, 2 bass trombones, 4 french-horns and 2 tubas), bass, drums, percussion and two harps. Often reminiscent of classical music, Johnson's writing allows plenty of room for Gillespie to improvise. The result is a rather unique set of music that is well worth searching for.

Review: A typical live set by Dizzy Gillespie with his 1961 quintet, it was recorded at that year's Monterey Jazz Festival. Little unusual occurs although it is interesting to hear this early version of Jobim's ‘Desafinado’. Joe Carroll and Gillespie get to clown around on ‘Oo Pop A Dah’, but overall, this is a routine performance.

Review: Wright and Gillespie play standard bop heads in this interesting if unexceptional set of tunes that includes ‘Lorraine’ and ‘Blues After Dark’. It's typical Dizzy fare from the early 60s - there are moments that fascinate in his solos and the ensemble work, but much of it leaves you wanting more. The most intriguing number is an excerpt from the extended ‘Gillespiana’ suite.   Dizzy Gillespie Quintet   TV-film track

Review: Released for the first time on this 1983 LP, the music on the set features guitarist Kenny Burrell in four different quartets/ quintets with either tenor great Illinois Jacquet, trombonist Eddie Bert or altoist Leo Wright and either pianist Hank Jones or organist Jack McDuff. It is odd that Columbia did not issue any of the straight-ahead music at the time, considering Mc Duff's popularity, for the results, even with a few dated numbers such as 'Mambo Twist', are excellent. After a short while, this LP went out of print and it took many years to appear on CD.

Review: Tadd Dameron's final session as a leader (he died in 1965) is a definitive set that sums up much of his career. Some of Dameron's best-known originals are here (incl. ‘On A Misty Night’, ‘Fontainebleau’, ‘If You Could See Me Now’ and ‘Our Delight’), and this CD reissue has three previously un-released alternate takes. For once, Dameron had a large group of all-stars at his exposure (up to 14 pieces) and could concentrate on providing the arrangements, while Bill Evans took care of the piano playing. Among the featured sidemen are tenor saxophonist Johnny Griffin, trumpeters Charlie Shavers, Joe Wilder and Clark Terry, trombonist Jimmy Cleveland, Julius Watkins on french horn and drummer Philly Joe Jones; Barbara Winfield takes two fine vocals. Highly recommended to all Bop collectors. The Magic Touch Of Tadd Dameron / Tadd Dameron And His Orchestra

BELLAPHON 1546

'The Other Side of Lalo Schifrin' was released in 1968 on the Audio Fidelity records label. This session is loaded with Schifrin's supercool and extra suave 'Brazilian period' compositions (written and cut not too long after Schifrin left Brazil and took up residence in New York City). And, the session, while certainly dominantly Brazilian in tone and feel, is really remarkable for the particular balancing act between Brazilian sensuality and Gotham City grit that Schifrin pulls off so fluidly and so effortlessly. An estimable LP, recommended ! Liner notes written by Joao Tabajara, recorded by William Hamilton; produced by Herman D. Gimbel. Terrific psychedelic cover design by Rhea Atkins.

Review
: It was an exciting time for Brazilian music in the early 60´s, when bossa nova and samba rhythms came to occupy a special place in the heart of American jazz musicians. These contagious rhythms, lyrical melodies, and sophisticated chord progressions from Rio, Sao Paulo, and Bahia practically seduced artists like Dizzy Gillespie, Stan Getz, and, later, Chick Corea. Pianist Lalo Schifrin, who became one of the world's greatest jazz musicians and composers, gathered members of Gillespie's band - bassist Chris White, drummer Rudy Collins, and flutist/saxophonist Leo Wright - for this exciting date, originally recorded in 1962. The quartet creates a powerful polyrhythmic sound, with lead voice switching off between Schifrin's lively ivories and Wright's graceful flute on the most effective tracks like 'Chora True Tristeza'. The quartet is enhanced by Latin percussionists Jose Paulo of Brazil and Jack Del Rio of Argentina; Paulo performs on the pandeiro, a Brazilian tambourine, while Del Rio adds subtle emotional whispers of rhythm with the cabaca, a gourd instrument covered with a loose network of beads. It's always exciting to hear how Schifrin and his colleagues egg each other on to play quicker and quicker flurries of notes, but the slower passages - like the opening minutes of 'Poema Do Adeus' - create an interesting counterpoint. The way this tune explodes percussively tends to indicate that no matter how they try to tame themselves, these musicians can't quite keep it still for too long. Accept no substitutes; this is classic Brazilian music in its purest original form. The music of Brazil has been a great source of inspiration to jazz musicians all over the world, including the USA. The contagious rhythms, the lyrical melodies and sophisticated chord progressions from Rio, Sao Paulo, and Bahia were able to seduce and inspire artists like Dizzy Gillespie, Stan Getz, and Chick Corea.
     



PHILIPS 852021

Review: This LP was pressed in 1962. It´s such a pity that Dizzy Gillespie Philips' LPs have yet to be reissued on CD, for the trumpeter (45 at the time of this recording) was at the peak of his powers in the early '60s. On such songs as ‘In A Shanty In Old Shanty Town’, ‘Careless Love’, ‘One Note Samba’ and the ‘Theme from Black Orpheus’, Gillespie and his expanded quintet (with guests Bola Sete or Elec Bacsik on guitar and Charlie Ventura taking a memorable bass sax solo on ‘No More Blues Pt. 2’) show a great deal of spirit and creativity. Leo Wright (on alto and flute) and pianist Lalo Schifrin are also in fine form throughout this gem.

Review: Long out of print, this highly enjoyable LP finds trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie and his quintet joined by guitarist Elek Bacsik and percussionist Pepito Riestra for some joyous explorations of bossa nova rhythms and related material. This extended version of Antonio Carlos Jobim's 'No More Blues' is classic and the quintet's renditions of 'Long Long Summer', 'Desafinado' and 'Here It Is' are also memorable. In addition to the trumpeter, altoist Leo Wright and pianist Lalo Schifrin have plenty of solo space. All of Gillespie's Philips recordings should be reissued on CD.

Review: Latiny set recorded for Argo by this trumpet player who normally does fairly snoozy stuff. The real treat here are the sidemen (and women), because the session includes performances by Leo Wright, Patti Brown, Willie Rodriguez, and Ray Barretto. Cuts include 'Goldie's Thing', 'Fast Thought', and 'Nightingale'. Manny Albam arranged, and the set's got sort of a mellow Latin vibe, with Don and Leo soloing over the top.

Review by Chris Hovan
While the majority of classic jazz albums have obtained their status based on the innovative nature of the statements contained therein, the fact remains that there are a sizable number of albums that charm in a way that is quite different from the virtues of, let’s say, Kind Of Blue or A Love Supreme. These minor gems may speak in a way that reaches the listener more directly or they may possibly contain a good number of favorite standards that just happen to strike a chord with a number of fans. The point I’m trying to make is that something doesn’t necessarily have to hit you over the head or be a profound and moving experience to make it worth spending some time with. In the case of trumpeter Don Goldie none of the few recorded artifacts that he left behind could by any standard be considered innovative or radical, yet they provided an ideal forum for an ebullient and particularly brassy soloist with something important to say. While he is most clearly associated with the Dixieland and swing genres through prominent stays with Jack Teagarden, Lester Lanin, and Buddy Rich, Goldie’s brief period of solo work from the early ‘60s illustrated that he was indeed a versatile artist who could very easily lead the show, as he so eloquently proves in his first Argo release from 1961. Brilliant.
  Goldie’s sophomore effort for Argo,`62’s Trumpet Caliente is the subject at hand and it solidifies the trumpeter’s stylistic muse. For one thing, the engineering this time is provided by Rudy Van Gelder and one gets an even better chance to hear the finely etched shadings of Goldie’s astonishingly expressive and full-bodied tone. Leo Wright is heard on alto sax and flute, pairing successfully with the trumpeter. Pianist Patti Bown, bassist Ben Tucker, drummer Ed Shaugnessy, and conga drummer Ray Barretto further support the twosome on a half-dozen sides that mostly fall in the category of jazz standards. While swing is at a premium for numbers like 'Fast Thought' and 'There Will Never Be Another You', the Latin tinge comes into play (thus, giving some meaning to the Spanish album title) for three pieces that add guitarist Barry Galbraith, percussionist Willie Rodriguez, and arranger Manny Albam. Particularly jubilant is a bossa version of 'Shiny Stockings' with Wright’s flute providing an airy touch. Nothing really gets above a medium tempo here, but there’s a sense of satisfaction and amazement at Goldie’s effortless forays that make this set one of my late night favorites. Like the previously mentioned 'Brilliant' and his Verve set 'Trumpet Exodus', 'Trumpet Caliente' is worthy of reissue, even if it means one of the pricey Japanese variety.
     



CONCORD JAZZ 2-2171-2

Reviews: Unlike Jimmy Smith, Brother Jack McDuff's working groups of the 60ies always contained a saxophonist, as well as an up-and-coming guitar star. As a result, McDuff was less prone to substitute guest stars for the members of his band when he entered the recording studio. He was not averse to adding special collaborators, however, and this session finds him doing so with memorable results. Kenny Burrell, who has never encountered a playing situation in which he did not sound perfect, works as well with Mc Duff here as he did with Smith; while Leo Wright, fresh from an important term with Gillespie's quintet, has more than enough funk in his alto conception to make his own valuable contribution.


The program is heavily weighted with vintage blues standards made popular by Count Basie, Erskine Hawkins, and Nellie Lutcher.The most popular tracks, though, proved to be the intense title number and the feature for McDuff regular Joe Dukes, 'Soulful Drums'. McDuff teams up with his regular drummer Joe Dukes, altoist Leo Wright and guitarist Kenny Burrell for a spirited blues-oriented set which has been re-issued on CD in the OJC series. ‘Soulful Drums’, featuring Dukes's drum breaks, was a minor hit. Other selections on this generally fine organ date include spirited versions of ‘He's a Real Gone Guy’, ‘After Hours’ and ‘One O'Clock Jump’ even if the title cut does not quite live up to its name.
