5.0 out of 5 stars Young Vic, 10 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Four Classic Albums (Transatlantic Alliance / Victor Feldman Modern Jazz Quartet / The Arrival Of Victor Feldman / Victor Feldman In London Volume 2) (Audio CD)
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.
