The music of Rodgers & Hammerstein gets a very groovy twist here – thanks to the mighty talents of the Australian Jazz Quintet! The group have a great mix of instruments – both the vibes of Jack Brokensha and piano of Bryce Rhodes, and the intertwining reeds of Erroll Buddle and Dick Healey – both players who've learned a lot from the west coast scene of the early 50s, and really know how to get creative with their phrasing and solos! The vibes often give the tunes a nicely moody feel – one that's underscored even more by the reeds on some of the more exotic tunes – and titles include "The Gentleman Is A Dope", "Do I Love You", "Wonderful Guy", "Hello Young Lovers", and "March Of The Siamese Children".

Jazz / Cool / Vibes

The style's never too free here – not in an avant jazz way – but the group's definitely opening up a bit more than before, and making even more magic with their music! The lineup has changed a bit from earlier albums from this combo – but key Australian players are still very much on hand – the great Bryce Rhode on piano, Jack Brokensha on vibes, and Errol Buddle on reeds! Rhode is one of the best pianists of the time – sadly overlooked upon his 60s return to Australian (where he made some wonderful records) – and his careful sense of tone really starts things off wonderfully – and brings more out of the vibes than we've ever heard on Brokensha's later records. Titles include the long "Take Three Parts Jazz" suite – plus "Detour Ahead", "I'll Remember April", "Bewitched", and "Swingin Goatsherd Blues".

Jazz / Cool / Vibes / Flute / Bassoon

One of the coolest records ever from this unique Australian 50s group featuring the extended "Jazz In D Minor" suite. This '50s and '60s band was modeled on The Modern Jazz Quartet, and featured vibraphonist Jack Brokensha. I discovered these guys way back in the late 50's. I thought they were at least 50 years ahead of their time. The blend of of these instruments Bassoon and flute just blow my mind as they did the first time I heard them way back then. The amazing fact is that those sounds are still the coolest and up to date today. Like I said before, 50 years ahead of their time. They deserve 10 stars.

Jazz / Cool / Vibes / Flute

Weird winds make this a mighty nice record – a blend of the tenor and bassoon of Errol Buddle and alto and flute of Dick Healy – all set to piano from Bryce Rhode, and vibes from the great Jack Brokensha! All players have a very strong sense of tone and color – and move together at a level that might be influence by the experiments of the Modern Jazz Quartet, but which also takes on a much more expressive feel with the presence of the reeds. Tracks are short and tightly arranged – and tunes include "So Nice", "Few Get It", "That Old Feeling", "Koala", and "Lover Man".

Originally released in 1968, Introducing Kenny Cox and the Contemporary Jazz Quintet is the first recording by the storied and somewhat lesser known Detroit ensemble. Led by pianist Cox, the Contemporary Jazz Quintet featured saxophonist Leon Henderson (brother of Joe Henderson), trumpeter Charles Moore, bassist Ron Brooks, and drummer Danny Spencer. Interestingly, this group is perhaps best known for its connection to the legendary Detroit rock group the MC5 as both Moore and Henderson performed on the band's 1971 cut "Sister Anne."

Forget the hokey kangaroo picture on the cover, because the record's a mighty sweet set of 50s modern jazz – played by some key musicians from Australian who were working in the US at the time! The record's got a style that's somewhere between the hippest sessions of LA and Sweden at the time – all the coolness of both scenes, but a sense of playful expression that really comes through on some of the more unusual passages. The core group features Errol Buddle and Dick Healey on reeds, Bryce Rhode on piano, and Jack Brokensha on vibes – with added work from John Fawcett or Jimmy Gannon on bass, and Nick Stabulas on drums. Titles include "Loose Walk", "Like Someone In Love", "Music For Walkin", "Fascinating Rhythm", "A Foggy Day", and "Little Girl Blue".

Making music for a combination of orchestral musicians and jazz musicians has end-less possibilities. Appreciation for the abilities each has for the other makes for an atmosphere charged with high interest, creative communication and new ideas. This was the setting for the composing and recording of The Continents for me, a dream come true. The process of making the recording was magical. The morale of the mu-sicians plus the recording team was so high that we finished recording the six move-ments of the concerto a day and a half under schedule. After saying goodbyes to the orchestra musicians, the Quintet had an impromptu jam just for fun. Of course, the recorder was on.
