Michael Garrick with Joe Harriott & Shake KeanePoetry & Jazz In Concert – Record 2 ... LP
Argo (UK), 1964. Very Good ... $43.99
A fantastic album of British jazz! The core of the record is two poetry recitations – one by Jeremy Robson and one by Laurie Lee – but in two separate instances, the Michael Garrick trio plays some fantastic hard bop material with guest appearances by Shake Keane and Joe Harriott! The instrumental passages are quite long, and although they don't make up the whole album, they feature some of the best recorded work by Keane, Harriott, and Garrick, whose still in a strong jazz vein here. The poetry stuff isn't that bad, either – and at a few points, the band adds some instrumental accompaniment, although most of the reading is purely vocal. Instrumental titles are "Vishnu" and "She's Like a Shadow". Great stuff! LP, Vinyl record album
