Dick Morrisey & The Michael Garrick TrioGirl With The Brown Hair ... LP
Gearbox (UK), 1964. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Searing 60s work from Dick Morrissey – a UK tenor player who only ever recorded a handful of dates as a leader! This smoking material features Dick at the top of his game – right up there at the same level as his classic early 60s sides, like Here & Now – blowing tight and soulfully, but also with this really dark edge in his horn – a perfect accompaniment for the piano of Michael Garrick, caught here at an early point in his career, but already with a voice on his instrument that's bold and righteous. The setting is simple – none of the higher concepts in some of Garrick's later work – but the power of the record is undeniable, even over the course of its short 20 minutes of music. Titles include "The Girl With The Brown Hair", "The Gypsy", "Blues", and "Autumn Leaves". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Michael GarrickTroppo ... CD
Argo/Vocalion (UK), 1974. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark album from pianist Michael Garrick – one of the sublime recordings he made with vocalist Norma Winstone in the late 60s and early 70s! Garrick's approach is really unique – a flowing, almost modal approach that spirals out in a joyously dancing groove – not nearly as chunky or standard as styles from American jazz, but working in the freer rhythms being explored on the European scene of the time. Winstone's vocals are a perfect accompaniment for this approach – as she sings in a moody style that's often wordless, and which fits nicely next to flowing piano and sax lines on the set. Players include Don Rendell, Coleridge Goode, Art Themen, and Garrick himself – and titles include "Troppo", "To Henry, A Son", "Lime Blossom", "Sons Of Art", and "Overtones Of A Forgotten Music".

✨✧ Michael GarrickSilhouette (previously unreleased) ... LP
Gearbox (UK), 1958. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Incredible production values – well worth the high price tag – superb vinyl, great cover, and very limited pressing!)

✨✧ Michael Garrick with Don Rendell & Ian CarrPrelude To Heart Is A Lotus (180 gram pressing – with bonus download) ... LP
Gearbox (UK), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A real lost treasure from the legendary Michael Garrick – a set that stands strongly with all of his classic albums of the late 60s, but which is issued here for the first time ever! As the title implies, the recording is a bit of a prelude to the Heart Is A Lotus album – as it shares a few compositions and a few group members with that wonderful set – but the overall feel is different, too – in that the album's all instrumental, and stretches out with really wonderful solos over modal rhythms – a bit more like some of Garrick's mid 60s recordings! Michael himself plays piano, harpsichord, and celeste – and the album features sublime solos from Don Rendell on soprano sax, alto, and flute, plus trumpet from Ian Carr – over wonderful rhythms from Coleridge Goode on bass and Trevor Tomkins on drums and percussion. This is hardly demo material at all – as the recording quality is totally top-shelf – and beautifully remastered here. Titles include "Song By The Sea", "Temple Dancer", "Sweet & Sugary Candy", "Heart Is A Lotus", and "Little Girl". LP, Vinyl record album

New Jazz OrchestraLe Dejeuner Sur L'Herbe ... CD
Verve/Dusk Fire (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $13.99
A wonderful wonderful set from the British jazz scene of the late 60s – beautifully inventive large ensemble material, done under the direction of Neil Ardley – and featuring some of the best British jazz musicians of the time! The group's a showcase not only for creative young talent in the UK, but also for the growing sense of composition as well – and the music on the set is penned by Ardley, Michael Garrick, Mike Taylor, and Michael Gibbs – as well as new arrangements of work by Miles Davis and John Coltrane. As in the best material from Ardley, Garrick, and Gibbs, there's a really fresh way of coming together for the instrumentation – quite different than large group material in both the US, and even other areas of the 60s European scene – delivered with wonderful imagination by musicians who include Derek Watkins, Henry Lowther, Harry Beckett, and Ian Carr on trumpets; Michael Gibbs and Derek Wadsworth on trombones; Barbara Thompson on flute and soprano sax; Dick Heckstall Smith on tenor and soprano; Frank Ricotti on vibes; and even Jack Bruce on bass! Titles include "Le Dejeuner Sur L'Herbe", "Naima", "Angle", "Ballad", "Dusk Fire", "Study", and "Rebirth". CD

✨✧ Joe Harriott/Amancio D'Silva QuartetHum Dono ... LP
EMI/Vocalion (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the most compelling albums ever recorded by British alto genius Joe Harriott – a very unusual record that has him working with guitarist Amanico D'Silva, in a style that's got some wonderful modal undertones! The feel here is a bit like Harriott's work with Michael Garrick – minus piano, of course – as he and D'Silva work through some tunes that are long, filled with complicated rhythms, yet still have a magically dancing sound. The mood shifts a bit from track to track – as Norma Winstone comes in for wordless vocals on two numbers, and Ian Carr blows a bit on one tune – and there's one short track on the record that only features Harriott's alto next to a bit of drums. Great stuff all around – with titles that include "NNNT", "Hum Donon", "Jaipur", "Stephano's Dance", and "Ballad For Goa". LP, Vinyl record album
