LP (Item 373635) MPS (Germany), 1968 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 5

A well-titled set – in that it's got Oscar's piano in a fairly loose, soulfully relaxed setting with Sam Jones on bass and Bob Durham on drums. The album was recorded by MPS wizard Hans Georg Brunner-Schwer in his own home – and it's an excellent example of the label's scene at its most relaxed mode. Tracks are longish, but never too self-indulgently so – and titles include "Waltzing Is Hip", "Satin Doll", "Love Is Here To Stay", "Sandy's Blues", "Alice In Wonderland", and "Noreen's Nocturne".

Oscar Peterson plays pretty – but doesn't he always? The set's a classic bit of early Peterson – a 10" LP recorded by Norman Granz, packaged in a David Stone Martin cover, and featuring a trio that includes Irving Ashby and Ray Brown.

Rollin
MPS, 1981. Very Good+
Freddie Hubbard's definitely rolling on this great little set – rolling right back into acoustic jazz territory after a run of smoother soul sessions for bigger labels at the end of the 70s! The album's a live one, and it's a perfect example of the development of Hubbard's solo skills at the ... LP, Vinyl record album

One of the most beautiful albums Friedrich Gulda ever recorded for MPS – a wonderful session that features key solo work from players who include Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, JJ Johnson on trombone, and Sahib Shihab on flute and baritone sax!

One of Gulda's more out efforts, and one that features mostly solo work, apart from a few other tracks with additional percussion by Klauss Weiss.

Trip issue of material from Randy Weston's under-issued years of the mid 60s – just 3 long tracks that are all totally great!
