Michael Garrick with Don Rendell & Ian CarrPrelude To Heart Is A Lotus (180 gram pressing – with bonus download) ... LP
Gearbox (UK), 1968. New Copy ... $24.99
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

✨✧ 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 GarrickTroppo ... CD
Argo/Vocalion (UK), 1974. New Copy ... 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".

✨✧ Joe HarriottJoe Harriott – Genius ... CD
Jazz Academy (UK), Early 60s/1999. Used ... $12.99
Stunning work from one of England's greatest jazz artists ever! West Indian sax player Joe Harriott was one of the brightest spots on the UK's jazz scene of the late 50s and 1960s – and although a few of his more famous albums have been issued on CD, there's a wealth of great work by Joe that's never seen the light of day since the 60s. This long-overdue set features some excellent rare work by Joe – most recorded live, either with his own group, or that of Michael Garrick, who produced the set. The first four tracks feature Harriott Quintet tunes from 1961 – two straight numbers, versions of "Moanin" and "Round Midnight", plus two examples of Joe's "abstract" style of jazz, "Coda" and "Tempo". Next up are some wonderful angular solo recordings of standards like "Confirmation", "Love For Sale", and "Body & Soul" – all of which show Joe's deep roots in soulful jazz tradition, embellished slightly by some added piano by Coleridge Goode. Lastly, Joe blows incredibly with Garrick's groundbreaking groups of the 60s – wailing hard on the hardbop groover "Shiva", and his own modal jammer "Calypso Sketches". Wonderful work all around – and an essential bit of Harriott to fill your all-too-empty collection! CD

Joe Harriott/Amancio D'Silva QuartetHum Dono ... CD
EMI/Vocalion (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $16.99
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". CD
