✨✧ Larry Wild WriceWild – The Big Big Sound Of Larry Wild Wrice ... LP
Pacific Jazz, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $34.99
The only album we've ever seen from jazz drummer Larry Wrice – a Chicago player who really kicks it in a hard and heavy soul jazz groove! Larry's got an approach to the kit that's quite a lot like that of Joe Dukes – one that's always concerned with pushing the rhythms of the tune very strongly, but which is so strong, so confident that it can snap away for some additionally playful work all around the kit – making for a groove that's extremely groovy throughout! For the set, Larry's working in a quartet format – with a young James Spaulding on tenor, alto, and flute (his first session?), Bobby Bryant on trumpet, and Bobby Blivins on organ. Tracks are short, soulful, and very down and dirty – far more so than we would ever expect for a session on Pacific Jazz at the time! Titles include "Husky", "Church Seat", "Travelin", "Swingin & Things", "Santifism", "Antler Rock", "Unholy Four", and "Wild Wrice". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small bit of tape in one corner, but is very nice overall.)
