True Audiophile Vinyl Rip
'Out to Lunch' stands as Eric Dolphy's magnum opus, an absolute pinnacle of avant-garde jazz in any form or era.
Grievous Angel was the second solo album by Gram Parsons, compiled from 1973 sessions and released four months after his death. Like all of Parsons' records, it failed to rate high on the charts, never reaching the top hundred on the Billboard charts. Nonetheless, it is viewed as a successful example of the hybrid between country and rock and roll Parsons called "Cosmic American Music."
A Very Great Sounded 500 Copies Reissue!!!
A really cool bit of bossa jazz from reedman Buddy Collette – an artist who's not as well associated with the genre as Stan Getz or Paul Desmond – but who really cooks nicely here! The setting is relatively lean and groovy – with guitar from Howard Roberts, bass from Mel Pollan, and percussion from Leo Acosta and Darias – both of whom bring a nice sort of west coast vibe to the set, one that's different from some of the Verve bossa modes of the time. Jim Helms handled the arrangements, with a nice airy sort of mode – and Buddy plays both tenor and flute, on titles that include "Nao Pode Ser", "Porque De Moras", "A Pele Do Marfin", "A Meie Noite", "Samba Da Tartaruga", and "Amor Levado".
Features the high-fidelity SHM-CD format (compatible with standard CD player). Cover artwork faithfully replicates original one. Comes with lyrics and a description. Camel was still finding its signature sound on its eponymous debut album. At this point, Peter Bardens and his grand, sweeping organ dominate the group's sound and Andrew Latimer sounds tentative on occasion.
