Product Description

AVID Jazz here presents four classic Victor Feldman albums including original LP liner notes on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD. 'Transatlantic Alliance', 'Victor Feldman Modern Jazz Quartet', 'The Arrival Of Victor Feldman' and 'Victor Feldman In London (Vol 2)'. Victor Feldman was a jazz musician with a foot on both sides of the Atlantic. In the late fifties he was recording albums both in Britain and in the States and was the envy of many a struggling British jazz musician. Feldman had emigrated to the USA in 1955 and played with the likes of Frank Rosolino, Bob Cooper, Leroy Vinnegar and Marty Paich and had impressively been signed to the famed Contemporary label. Our featured albums come from both sides of the pond. The 1956 set 'Transatlantic Alliance' features British label Tempo stars Tubby Hayes, Dizzy Reece and Jimmy Deucher playing in a variety of different sized bands. 'The Victor Feldman Quartet' from 1955 is the last of the Tempo label recordings before he moved to the States and quickly secured a spot in the Woody Herman Herd! 'The Arrival of Victor Feldman' finds our man recording in Los Angeles in 1958 accompanied by Stan Levey on drums and Scott La Faro on bass who would go on to play with legendary pianist Bill Evans before dying tragically in a car crash at only 25 years old. We conclude with 'Victor Feldman in London Volume 2' featuring Feldman in a variety of permutations from a big band to a nine-tet to a quintet. The musicians involved were a veritable who's who of British jazzmen including the likes of Tubby Hayes (who plays an amazing solo on baritone sax), Jimmy Deucher, Dizzy Reece, Phil Seaman and Ronnie Scott. Feldman, by the way can be heard not only on his customary vibes but also on his other instrument of choice - drums! All four albums have been digitally re-mastered for probably the finest ever sound quality!

Another astonishing bargain from Avid, offering as it does, three more complete reissues from the old Tempo catalogue (reissued by Jasmine a decade ago) "Victor Feldman in London Vol 1 and Vol 2 (which itself included the contents of another Feldman session from 1957 called "Transatlantic Alliance"). All these 1956/7 tracks were recorded in London following Vic's departure for America, on his first holiday home (December 56/January 57) and feature the cream of British modernists of the day - Ronnie Scott, Jimmy Deuchar, Derek Humble, Terry Shannon, Phil Seamen etc etc, plus a 10" quartet LP recorded just before his departure to the States in 1955. This features the now forgotten pianist Terry Pollard, who was one of the original modern British pianists, who died far too early in 1960 and therefore appeared on very few records - most of them sadly unobtainable.

As ever with Avid there is a tremendous bonus - a 1959 session for the USA label "Contemporary" with Scott LeFaro and Stan Levey. This is a famous trio LP called "The Arrival Of....", though by the time it was recorded Vic had been working regularly in the States(with Woody Herman and Shelly Manne amongst others) and had already recorded under his own name for Trend. He would go on to work with Cannonball Adderley and Miles Davis, which gives those who don't know of him, some idea of his great qualities

Vic - pianist, vibist, drummer, arranger, composer (1934-1987). I hope this cheap reissue of some of his finest work will promote interest in another great musician in danger of being forgotten. He was a great musician as you will hear.

Victor Feldman was a British jazzman who emigrated to America in 1955, returning from time to time on holiday to the U.K. He continued to record in the U.K. for a while. This disc consists of four sessions, one recorded before he left, two on return visits and one in the U.S.A. after he had settled there. In England he had been a triple threat on vibes, piano and drums, but in America he gradually began to concentrate on the piano. In Britain he was probably the top modern jazz player until pushed off that perch by Tubby Hayes,
He was undoubtedly a very good player, although to these ears his music has not survived as well as that of Tubbs. However, this is an attractive collection of his work in a variety of settings.
In the order they are presented on this two disc set 'Transatlantic Alliance' recorded on a home visit in 1956/7 comes first. There is a sextet with Dizzy Reece, Ronnie Scott, Tubby Hayes (on baritone), and Victor on piano, a quartet with Dizzy and rhythm (Victor again on piano), and a quintet with Jimmy Deuchar on trumpet, with Victor on vibes and Terry Shannon on piano. So, lots of variety, with the two top trumpeters in the country, good solos all round and some blistering baritone from Tubbs (was there anything he couldn't do?)
The next session is 'The Victor Feldman Quartet' from 1955, little known but very impressive. Victor is on vibes throughout, with Tommy Pollard and Norman Stenfalt doubling on piano. Victor plays fluent but thoughtful vibes but the real star is Pollard, who plays some ruminative chords in solo and accompaniment, around which the whole music revolves. On his tracks Stenfalt plays some melodic piano but sounds lightweight by comparison.
Then follows 'The Arrival Of Victor Feldman', made in the U.S.A. with Scott LaFaro and Stan Levey.

Obviously I know about the impact Feldman made in America and his work with both Miles Davis and Cannonball Adderley, and of his fine compositions such as "Joshua" and "Azule Serape", but I knew nothing of his contribution to the British jazz scene prior to his American fame.
This album is a fine collection of his earlier work in various settings. The outstanding album is the quartet album from 1955 with Feldman on vibes. In fact there are two quartets; one with pianist Tommy Pollard, Eric Peter (b) and Tony Crombie (d) and the other with Norman Stenfalt (p), Lennie Bush and Phil Seamen(d). Pianist Tommy Pollard was a revelation to me.
The "opening album" is "Transatlantic Alliance" (1956/1957) which has Dizzy Reece, Jimmy Deuchar (both tpt) and Tubby Hayes along with stalwarts such ad Lennie Bush, Tony Crombie, Phil Seamen, Terry Shannon, Kenny Napper.
The third album, made in the US, is a trio with Feldman on both piano and vibes, along with americans Scott La Faro and Stan Levy.
Finally there is a big band / nine - tet / quintet album with Feldman on vibes, except the nine-tet where he plays drums.
If this is not an all embracing selection of Feldman's skills and contribution I can't think what would be.
As usual, two CDs, booklet and fine sound quality all for a few quid!

Pricewise, this is good value for four albums, but the tracks on these UK recordings don't compare with most of the work Feldman did in the USA.

A totally brilliant cd. Sublime playing and musicality. I don't really know what to add, except to say, if you like jazz, and don't have this album, then buy it! Buy it! British players too!
