Tenors West – Jimmy Giuffre With The Marty Paich Octet

LP (Item 549614) GNP, Mid 50s — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 5

A nice little session of LA jazz – with a lot more fire than usual for this sort of set! Part of the reason for that is because Marty Paich's handling the arrangements – giving them a good swing that keeps all players moving in line. Another reason is that Jack "Mr. Bongo" Costanzo's on bongos – giving the set a nice little kick in the back line. Giuffre and Cooper play twin front tenors, and the group's also got horn work by Harry Klee and Bob Enevoldsen. Titles include "Tenors West", "Ballet Du Bongo", "Con-spirito", "Line For Lyons", and "The Dragon".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Along Comes Cal
Verve, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Great stuff – and very very groovy! Cal cut this record for Verve during the height of his swinging 60s Latin years – and he's working here with arranger Chico O'Farrill, who at the time, was perfectly suited for Cal's short, jaunty approach to a groove! The album's filled with nice ... LP, Vinyl record album
