Album of the Week 10-21-23

Afternoon folks!

Well, I've got a good pile of stuff for you this week. Starting off, there's a european record of Champion Jack Dupree backed by a jazz band, followed by an album by Chicago blues sax player A.C. Reed. After that we move on to the blues-rock stuff with albums by Harvey Mandel, The Climax Chicago Blues Band and Rory Gallagher. There's also an album of studio jams by Peter Green.

Then in the diversity department there's a double live album from the Flying Burrito Bros, a double live album from Weather Report and we finish off with a Rock and Roll (perhaps New Wave) album from The Vapors.

Enjoy and have a great weekend!

You always seem to bring up a group

I'm watching an excellent documentary on the late saxophonist Wayne Shorter. It's titled Zero Gravity, and on Amazon. Shorter was a prodigy and a genius, needless to say. And what a musical pedigree! He started with Art Blakely's Jazz Messengers, and then Miles Davis snatched him. Shorter then hooked up with Joe Zawinul and started the jazz fusion band, Weather Report. One of his great admirers among many is Carlos Santana. Anywho, it sure beats the depressing current events of today. Rec'd!!

Hey Joe!

GREAT sounds as always man!

I love that Peter Green, surely it has been on at least 5 hard drives here. Smile

Good Rory too, though I hated seeing Rod D'Ath go, really liked his drumming. The big question is "three piece or four piece Rory?" I kinda like the three piece, no keys. Brian May said when Rory told the UK guitarists he only used a treble booster for gizmos, they all went out and bought one. Smile

Loved that Bloomfield last week too!

Thanks for the great soundscapes!

i am partial to rory's early period with taste (a 3 piece) but (kinda obviously) i like all of his stuff.
