✨✧ Clarke Boland Big BandOur Kinda Strauss ... LP
Rearward/Schema (Italy), Mid 60s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Not a set of Strauss recordings, but a fantastic set of lost European recordings by the legendary Clarke/Boland Big Band – put together with the same beautiful packaging and selection as the other sets on Rearward! This volume features the band playing a lot of modal waltz-type tracks – some groovy updatings of Strauss material, others original compositions by Francy Boland, and a few of them covers like "Wives & Lovers" or "My Favorite Things". The band's filled with the usual great batch of European and American players, like Benny Bailey, Ake Persson, Johnny Griffin, Sahim Shihab, and Karl Drewo – and the liveliness of the material gives strong testament to the band's current rediscovery by the jazz cognoscenti. As with the other sets in this series, there's a nice amount of liner notes and photos, and the album's brimming over with great tracks, including "Lotus", "Just Give Me Time", "Peter's Waltz", "Keep On Keeping On", and "Cara Fea". Many tracks unreleased before, and lots of others are quite rare! LP, Vinyl record album

Sahib ShihabSahib Shihab & All Those Cats ... LP
Rearward/Schema (Italy), Mid 60s-Early 70s. Near Mint- 2LP ... $24.99
Although reed player Sahib Shihab made a few records in the US in the late 50's, it wasn't until he moved to Europe and started hanging out with the likes of the Clarke-Boland Big Band that his talents really started to flower. This cool new LP brings together 15 small-combo recordings made by Shihab and other members of the CBBB (like Fats Sadi, Benny Bailey, Francy Boland, and Jimmy Woode) during the mid 60's. All the material was recorded by CBBB manager/producer Gigi Campi, and none of the stuff's been issued before as far as we can tell. The groove is nice and swinging, with excellent rolling grooves by Sadi on bongos and vibes. Shihab plays both flute and baritone, and the set swings with the same sort of modal groove as the best Saba/MPS recordings from the time. Cuts include "Campi's Idea", "Dijdar", "Companionship (I + II)", "Peter's Waltz", "Om Mani Padme Hum", and "Herr Fixit". As with the other titles in this series, the music's accompanied by a great package, with loads of excellent photos, good notes, and stellar sound quality. This is the kind of stuff we collect jazz for, and it's great to have it in stock at a nice low price! LP, Vinyl record album
