Light, Airy, & Swinging

LP (Item 31394) MPS, 1973 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 5

One of George's 70s albums for MPS, and although not as funky as the other one, still a pretty nice batch of lightly swinging jazz tunes – played in a style that's more jazz-based than a lot of Shearing's other albums from the time. The rhythm's by Stix Hooper and Andy Simpkins, and the approach is fairly soulful on most tracks. Titles include "Love Walked In", "Emily", "Beautiful Friendship", and "Cynthia's In Love".

Here & Now
Capitol, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
A bit mellower than usual for George – but very nice! George's quintet is backed by a larger orchestra – the usual mixture of vibes, piano, guitar, and percussion supported by a larger set of strings, which gives the record a lightly drifting kind of feel. There's not as many Latin ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tough Tenors Again N Again
MPS, 1970. Very Good+
A smoking twin-tenor session for MPS – one that reunites the mighty talents of Johnny Griffin and Eddie Lockjaw Davis! The album was done as an offshoot of both players' work for the Clarke Boland Big Band at the time – and the set was not only produced by CBBB impresario Gigi Campi, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Great Connection
MPS, 1974. Near Mint-
Oscar's great connection here is with the rhythm team of Louis Hayes on drums and Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass – both of whom bring in a nice degree of subtlety to the set, and make it one of Peterson's most gently-grooving albums for MPS! There's a warm, round quality to most of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Alto Summit (MPS)
MPS, 1969. Very Good
A well-conceived session that brings together 4 extremely different styles of altoists – the icy Lee Konitz, the freewheeling Phil Woods, the soulful Pony Poindexter, and the rhythmic Leo Wright – all backed by a hiply swinging modern rhythm section that includes Steve Kuhn on piano, ...

MPS, 1968. Near Mint-
The first of a series of great "private" recordings that Oscar Peterson did for the MPS label in the late 60s – sessions done at the home of label owner Hans Georg Brunner Schwer, in a laidback and easygoing style that's different than some of his American work of the time!

Primal George Duke
MPS (Germany), 1966. Near Mint-
Quite possibly the earliest record to ever feature pianist George Duke as a leader – and a set that's very different than his better-known work of the 70s! At first glance, the album appears to be a straight jazz outing, with Duke on acoustic piano – yet as we've come to expect from ... LP, Vinyl record album

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
