Playtime / Blues Caravan - Buddy Rich

Playtime / Blues Caravan
For all the power and limitless technique for which he is renowned, Buddy Rich was an enormously intelligent musician who played with finesse, taste and no little humour. His often breath-taking solos were but one aspect of his talent; he was equally revered as an accompanist injecting both swing and impetus while unselfishly allowing the soloists plenty of room to state their respective cases.
These 1961 small-group sessions recorded in Chicago and New York are among the most satisfying and sought-after of the whole Buddy Rich oeuvre, featuring soloists Sam Most on flute and the vibes of twenty-one year old Mike Mainieri, who also provided most of the charts.
In New York, this supremely inventive group is augmented by Swedish trumpeter Rolf Ericson and again play with precision and energy.
Rich particularly admired this recordings' sound quality and with good reason. The Blues Caravan session was produced by the legendary Creed Taylor.

What if computers finally began getting more Africa in them? What if folk artists started emerging who sounded more post-modern than Cornelius or Pole? What would Click Folk or Glitch Folk sound like? What would Alan Lomax have said if, in 1965, the Newport Folk Festival had been invaded by boffins and geeks playing modular Moogs? What if you could hear, today, the Country Music of the year 2049? What about the Japanese country music of 2049? What would that sound like? What if electronics had appeared in 18th Century Scotland just at the moment of the Highland Clearances? How many mountains can you fit on a Minidisc? It's what Raymond Scott, Bruce Haack or Gary Numan might have sounded like if they'd jammed their way through the back catalogue of Steeleye Span. It's Shakespeare rendered in Flash 5 by a superlucid hyperactive Japanese geek. It's those prolific medieval songwriters Trad. and Anon. finding the missing link between unicorns and Unix. It's preposterous, provocative and prescient

The View from the Edge
Released 18/05/09. The View from the Edge is about the rolke of percussion in modern music and is a sequel to el's previous Varese edition, The Complete Works of Edgard Varese Volume 1 (ACMEM125CD). An important restoration of the composer's earliest recordings, the edition was greeted by great critical enthusiasm and sold especially healthily on export.

Varese also has a strong base in America, mostly by virtue of the association with Frank Zappa, who for years championed the work of this genius who today is regarded now as "The Father Of Electronic Music”; a man that has been described as the Leonardo da Vinci of modern music

‘Arcana’ and ‘Ionisation’ are the composer's key works; two of the most important of the twentieth century. Leonard Bernstein's historic seventeen minute Arcana with The New York Philharmonic is amongst the rarest Varese recordings The American Percussion Society's vigorous recording of ‘Ionisation’ has been inexplicably out of print for five decades

The Oliver Messiaen pieces are his first official recordings ever, dating from 1946 & 1947, and orginally released on 78 by Pathe. Both are beautifully performed by a young Yvonne Loriod.

The Cool Scene At Cafe Bizarre
Released on 15/02/10. A compilation of the strange, over the top world of beatnik exploitation, from spoken word to soulful jazz riffing. From Greenwich Villages Cafe Bizarre with jive poetry set to improvised guitar and hepcat strangeness. Punctuated by some bongo-led jazz along with some obscure noodling that throws authentic be bop next to groovy finger-clicking out takes. A offbeat mix of sounds and styles that gathers lewd humour and cool blowing for an hour-long journey into the past. Our Price: £2.49
Retail Price: £9.95
