John Robinson PierceMusic From Mathematics Vol 2 ... 7-inch
Decca/Cacophonic (UK), Early 60s. New Copy (pic cover)... $12.99
Really wonderful sounds from an early IBM computer – and a set that's quite different from both the academic and popular electronic albums of the 60s! You can really hear the programming at work here – the careful choices as to which sounds come out when, in a sequence that's more prescribed than played – which gives the whole thing an even spookier feel – as if there were no need for humans at all! John Robinson Pierce headed up a set of scientists at Bell Labs in the early 60s – which is where these sounds were created – and titles include "Five Against Seven", "Stochatta", "Variation In Timbre & Attack", "Melodie", and "Beat Cannon". 7-inch, Vinyl record

New John Robinson Pierce/Max MathewsMusic From Mathematics – Played By IBM 7090 Computer & Digital To Sound Transducer ... LP
Decca, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Really wonderful sounds from an early IBM computer – and a set that's quite different from both the academic and popular electronic albums of the 60s! You can really hear the programming at work here – the careful choices as to which sounds come out when, in a sequence that's more prescribed than played – which gives the whole thing an even spookier feel – as if there were no need for humans at all! As you might expect from the time, there's electronic renditions of "classics" like "Frere Jacques", "Joy To The World" and "Bicycle Built For Two", and then a bunch of newer compositions, primarily by scientists at the Bell Telephone Labs. 18 tracks in all, also includes "Variations On Timbre & Attack", "Theme & Variations" and "Noise Study". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear, a peeled spot in the center of the spine with some aging from old tape, and a bit of pen in one corner.)

Ray CharlesGenius + Soul = Jazz (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Impulse/Sandstone, 1960. Used ... $5.99
A wonderful chapter in the career of Ray Charles – and a key album in helping raise his respect level a notch or two in the early 60s! We might argue with the mathematics in the title – or at least joke that Ray was using equations as titles years before Anthony Braxton – but you can't contest the fact that this one's a classic treat, and a legendary attempt to class up Ray's bluesy style for the masses. Quincy Jones and Ralph Burns handled the arrangements, and given that the record was issued by ABC a few years before they brought Ray into a country mode, it's interesting to think what might have happened had his career continued this way. There's only a small number of vocal tracks on the record, and most of the rest feature Ray at the organ, grooving away very nicely! Titles include "One Mint Julep", "Moanin", "I've Got News For You", "Mister C", and "Stompin Room Only". CD includes the three tracks "Albany Bound", "New York's My Home", and "Basin Street Blues" from the album, Genius Hits The Road. CD
