Almost done packing my records and this Monk masterpiece really helped with the final push. It's an original, if noisy copy but fortunately it's a decent listen when you're moving around and filling boxes. It's fun to compare Brilliant Corners and Monk's Music, both are among my favorite Monk albums but pretty different. There's a lot of stories surrounding Corners and how Monk was very picky and inflexible, hard to work with, and the final album is very Monk-ish---slower and more calculated tunes, and unexpected little turns, etc. But I think Monk's Music has a feel that seems more shaped by the rest of the band with Monk rather than against him. Art Blakey can't really be contained, but his intensity and solo drive elevate everything, along with the wisdom of Coleman Hawkins and exuberance of the young John Coltrane. Classic Monk! #theloniousmonk #johncoltrane #gigigryce #colemanhawkins #raycopeland #wilburware #artblakey #riversiderecords #jazzvinyl #albumcovers

Gryce has got a pretty damn interesting life story; the little I know. Greatness.

"Thelonious Monk with John Coltrane" collects material from three different sessions in 1957. Five of the six songs feature John Coltrane, who played in Monk's group for six months. Interestingly enough, two of the tracks ("Off Minor" and "Epistrophy") also feature jazz legends Coleman Hawkins and Art Blakey. The highlights include Coltrane's complex playing on the quirky, driving number "Trinkle, Tinkle" and Monk's solo excursion on "Functional." A fine album pairing two jazz legends together to produce some very enchanting music.

Benny Golson's New York Scene (Contemporary, 1958)

Got this from a fellow IG jazz person on eBay who probably didn't know it was me buying it. If you want me to shout you out, let me know! In any case, this is Benny Golson's fabulous debut album as a leader, and features Art Farmer, with whom Golson would eventually form the wonderful Jazztet. The quintet on this date also features Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Charlie Persip. It is textbook hard bop for the most part, and is exactly the strong and self-assured offering you'd expect from such a group. I suppose the only unexpected thing is that such a New York-centric date would occur for a decidedly West Coast label. But I won't question it. On some tracks, the group is augmented to a hard bop nonet that really pushes the limits of how much genius can be crammed into a date. The group is joined on these tracks by Gigi Gryce, Sahib Shihab, Jimmy Cleveland, and Julius Watkins. Like the Byrd/Gryce Jazz Lab records, there is no sense of tonal claustrophobia, and the arranging, mostly by Golson and Gryce, is so expertly done that one forgets there are seven distinct horns. Highly recommended.

#gigigryce over looking #hartfordct where he grew up.. I noticed the next picture scroll through, which is on the back of this #prestigerecords OG DG "New Jazz" series "Saying Something" 1960. This was one of his last albums before he became disillusioned with the music business. One of his last albums was named "The Rat Race Blues" which was also put out in 1960. He wrote one of my favorite #jazzstandard "Minority".

I can only imagine if his career as a recording musician had continued. He changed his name #BasheerQusim and started a long and fruitful teacher career here in New England. I'm sure many of today's jazz musicians got to learn from this master.. anyways when it comes to jazz, not much else #hartfordhasit 😀

Gigi Gryce _ Reminiscin'

米輸入盤。馴染みの曲が多い良盤です! #gigigryce #altosax #jazz #standard

Finger-poppin' Saturday for me with this classic on the turntable. Great set with the Jazz Lab- a Japanese pressing with a lot of punch. Originals can be had pretty cheaply, too. All in all, this group didn't get much love from critics... in the September 1957 issue of High Fidelity, critic John S. Wilson wrote of Byrd and Gryce's "long, wearying solos" in this album and the group's "cold, stone-faced quality." I couldn't disagree more. ☺️ Featuring #gigigryce #donaldbyrd #jazzlab #jazzlabquintet #tommyflanagan #wadelegge #wendellmarshall #arttaylor with support from #bennypowell #juliuswatkins #donbutterfield #sahibshihab #jimmycleveland #30thstreetstudios #columbia30thstreetstudio

Thelonious Monk with John Coltrane. Recorded 1957. This was one of the first jazz albums I bought..I bought it because I'd just started playing sax, heard Coltrane and wanted to hear more. Then I heard the piano on this and it blew my mind..I then started buying Thelonious Monk albums! #nowspinning #vinyljunkie #cratedigger #jazzrecords #jazz #theloniousmonk #johncoltrane #wilburware #shadowwilson #colemanhawkins #gigigryce #artblakey #pianogenius
