I feel, some of this kind of Jazz, is broader line Smooth-Jazz... Which I hate!.. But, this album is worth it, just because of Jessica by Roy Porter. There are two versions of this tune, from a MEGA- RARE album... I had the album once, but sold it. It was an expensive record to buy and sell...
Roy Porter, played with Charlie Parker, and it makes me think, what would have Bird been doing, had he lived longer?
Great selection of tracks, some I'd heard samples from in some well known releases, but never knew where the sample had been taken from. Now I know, so thanks for the education Kev. All round nice listening selection and a must for everyone's collection.
As an old head from the days of the Electric Ballroom (upstairs) this collection brings back the memories of the days when the body was capable of doing more than just nodding the head profusely within the confines of the car on a Friday night.
Let's have some more collections to keep the memories alive a lot longer and perhaps pass on these experiences to the new and different heads.
