Ben Webster — See You At The Fair ... CD

A great little album from Ben Webster – perhaps not his most sophisticated, jazz-wise, but done up in a cool cover that has him standing in front of the steel globe at the 1964 World's Fair in New York. The music on the disc has a similar optimistic approach – as Ben solos lightly over rhythms by either Hank Jones or Roger Kellaway on piano (and a bit of harpsichord), plus bass and drums backing by Richard Davis and Osie Johnson. The album's got a great rolling soul jazz number called "See You At The Fair", and a very odd crashing harpsichord number called "Lullaby Of Jazzland" – plus the tunes "Fall Of Love", "While We're Dancing", and "Our Love Is Here To Stay". (Orange & black label mono A-65 pressing, with Van Gelder stamp. Please note: Cover has a split bottom seam, and staining on the bottom half.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Profiles
Impulse, Mid 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold
A great little jazz record by Gary – very different than his groovy/easy albums on Verve, and with a dark sound that shows his strength as a composer and arranger. The group features McFarland in the lead on vibes, plus reed work by Phil Woods, Zoot Sims, and Richie Kamuca, and lots of ... LP, Vinyl record album

A great take on the score to the hit show My Fair Lady – heard here in one of the best jazz interpretations from the time!

A great 2LP set – with two classic albums on Impulse!

Flute 'N Oboe
Pacific Jazz, 1956. Very Good
Goofy cover, but like Shank's various reed projects, it works pretty well. Bob Cooper conducts a small string section, and joins Shank – who's playing flute– on Oboe. Howard Roberts' guitar jazzes the thing up a bit, as the band bounces through 9 tracks, including "Gypsy In My ... LP, Vinyl record album
