✨✧ Michael Garrick with Joe Harriott & Shake KeanePoetry & Jazz In Concert – Record 2 ... LP
Argo (UK), 1964. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

Michael Garrick Quartet with Jacqui DankworthFor Love Of Duke and Ronnie ... CD
Jazz Academy (UK), 1996. Used ... $8.99
Surprisingly great work from British pianist Michael Garrick! Garrick was one of the best UK jazz talents of the 60s – working with players like Joe Harriott and Shake Keane on records that have become some of our favorite from the period. On this set of recent recordings, Garrick pays tribute to both Duke Ellington and the late Ronnie Scott – shifting through some tightly arranged group material that recalls all the soul and warmth of Ellington, yet which also touches on the wonderful edginess of Ronnie Scott's best recordings! The bulk of the material is original – written in that angular style that made Garrick's best 60s work so good – and a few tracks have vocals by singer Jaqui Dankworth. Titles include "Two Trumpets", "Samba Changes", "Swallows On The Water", "The Storm", and "Salvation March". CD
