Dick MorrisseyHave You Heard (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
77 Records/Jazzhus Disk (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $13.99
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

Dick MorrisseyLive Storm Warning – Manchester 1966 (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
77 Records/Jazzhus Disk (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $13.99
Some of the smokingest material ever recorded by British tenor player Dick Morrissey – and that's saying a hell of a lot, given the strength of his other albums! The date's got the same Storm Warning in the title as one of Dick's studio classics – but the record's something else entirely – a very open-ended live date, recorded a few years later – with loads of room for Morrissey to really open up and blow – showing off that amazing sense of tone and timing in ways that have us loving his music more than ever! The rhythm group is a key part of the success of the record – and features Harry South on piano, Phil Bates on bass, and the amazing Phil Seamen on drums – on long tracks that include "Altoitis", "Get Out Of The Country", "Sonny Boy", and "Storm Warning".

Dick MorrisseyLost 77 Recordings (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
77 Records/Jazzhus Disk (Japan), 1965/1966. New Copy ... $13.99
Never-issued material from the legendary Dick Morrissey – recorded for England's 77 Records at a time when Morrissey was at the height of his powers on the tenor! All tracks here are nice and long – really stretching out with an inventiveness that blows away even the level heard on Dick's famous studio albums – the kind of depth of feeling and imagination we're much more likely to hear from his contemporary Tubby Hayes – and proof that there's still plenty we've got to learn about British jazz! The group is great – Harry South on piano, Phil Bates on drums, and Phil Seamen on drums – giving Dick the kind of soulful swing that Tubby might normally get on some of his best records – and although the tracks on the set are listed here as "untitled" numbers – that's further proof that the music is fresh, and being discovered here for the first time!
