Dick MorrisseyHave You Heard (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
77 Records/Jazzhus Disk (Japan), 1963. Used ... $6.99
Damn great work from one of the greatest British tenorists of the 60s – reedman Dick Morrissey, an artist who never cracked our shores as strongly as Tubby Hayes or Ronnie Scott – but whose work is equally wonderful! Like both Hayes and Scott, Morrissey's got a way of mixing solid swing with a touch of modern – really taking Brit jazz to the next level with a recording like this – a smoking studio cooker with a rock-solid rhythm section! Most tunes are originals – played with tight changes that really make the most of Dick's sharp line on tenor – by a quartet that also includes Harry South on piano, Phil Bates on bass, and Jackie Dougan on drums. Titles include "The Goblin", "Serenata", "Down Home", "Skatin", "On The Spot", "There & Back", and "The Celt". CD
