Some of the earliest music we've ever heard from British pianist Michael Garrick
– a sublime session cut with Peter Shade on vibes in the late 50s – quite different than some of Garrick
's better-known music of the 60s, but equally amazing! The sound here is quite modern, but also nicely straight ahead – as most cuts have a swinging sound, amidst the brilliant mix of tones and colors from the piano and vibes! In addition to Shade's vibes and Garrick
's piano, other instrumentation includes Paul Hemmings on bass and Brian Barnes on drums – and Barnes also vocalizes on two tracks, and Josephine Stahl sings on two more. Titles include "A Welter Of Phenomena", "Silhouette", "I'll Never Be The Same", "Threesome", "I Saw Stars", "Angel Eyes", and "Willow Weep For Me".
(Incredible production values – well worth the high price tag – superb vinyl, great cover, and very limited pressing!)
