Check out YouTube link in bio (or IGTV) for the full video - For a long time now I’ve been obsessing over music theory, these past couple weeks especially spending hours on end trying to learn and understand Wynton Kelly’s pattern of chords and harmonies on this Coltrane composition. I have since found a lot of inspiration in 60 -70 year old jazz pieces I never knew existed. I have been writing my own compositions as of late for an upcoming project inspired by Jazz, 70’s classic rock, funk and Latin chord progressions I guess haha more on that later but let me know what you think of this track 👍🏼#johncoltrane#jazz#standard#naima#steinway#wyntonkelly#piano#cover#solo
I’ve been looking forward to listening to this LP all morning. It arrived this week thanks to @what_can_brown. As expected the rhythm is steady, reliable and unpretentious. The sextet format allows for a distinct depth and varied mood. And what a sextet it is! Hand-picked by #PaulChambers we have fellow Pittsburgher #TommyTurrentine on trumpet #LexHumphries on drums (who he clearly has magical chemistry with) #WyntonKelly on piano, and the one and only #YusefLateef on tenor who also wrote all the compositions. And last but not least the raw addition of #CurtisFuller on trombone which just hits it home for me (Vee Jay, 1960).
When thinking back on my jazz listening and collecting life, there have been loads of twists and turns. As I’ve often written here, my favorite Miles Davis album to this day is probably Bags’ Groove, which also has the distinction of being the first Miles album I heard in either elementary or early junior high school. My fixation with that album led me directly to Milt Jackson, and this album. It is quite possible that this just happened to be the one Milt Jackson album in the store that I asked for one of his records, or maybe it was calling in a request to my local jazz radio show. What I do know is that all of these years later, this album is still in my top ten favorite jazz releases. Give me a moment to rant against the jive ass mother fucking jazz collectors who don’t “rate” Milt Jackson and MJQ as significant or worthy of listening to solely based on the fact that their records aren’t worth three figures on the open market. Why don’t you go out and buy stocks and bonds if you want value you heartless bastards, music has soul, and depth, it isn’t a stock portfolio. MILT JACKSON & WES MONTGOMERY: Bags Meets Wes/ Riverside Records RLP407 Mono, Deep Groove, Promo, 1962. #MiltJackson vibes; #WesMontgomery guitar; #WyntonKelly piano; #SamJones Bass; #PhillyJoeJones drums. Recorded December 18/19, 1961. #riversiderecords#hardbop#souljazz#jazz#jazzvinyl#jazzcollector#jazzcollection#vinyl#vinylporn#vinylfetish#nowplaying
What you find beneath this atypical pop art cover (atypical for a jazz album) is a lineup so good (the Kind Of Blue rhythm section) if it were on say Blue Note this would be a stone cold classic. What you also find is a VANGELDER in the deadwax. The first I’ve seen on a Verve album. There are no horns on this album, giving it a relaxed vibe. Candido’s conga adds a bit of Latin flavor. The recording was done at Webster Hall in NYC over three days in 1964. I’ve seen many concerts at Webster Hall so I figured this was a “live album”. But to my surprise there is no audience. I found this on wiki: “From 1953-1968 RCA Records, recognizing the acoustical integrity of the Grand Ballroom, purchased the building and began operating Webster Hall as their East Coast recording venue, Webster Hall Studios... shows recorded between 1964 and 1969 were all made at Webster Hall, but without a live audience”. I believe this recording technique gives this album a very unique and big sound for a small jazz combo. I absolutely recommend checking this out if you haven’t heard it. #wyntonkelly#paulchambers#kennyburrell#jimmycobb#candido#jazzvinyl#vangelder#jazz#jazzrecords#vinylcollectionpost#vinylcommunity#vinyl#vinylart#vinylclub#vinylgram#cratedigger#cratedigging#dustyfingers#vinyloftheday#vinyligclub#vinylporn#jazzcollection#jazzcollector
