Mandel's debut remains his best early work, introducing an accomplished blues-rock guitarist capable of producing smooth, fluid lines and a variety of tasteful distortion and buzzing via an assortment of tone pedals and customized amplifiers. He augmented his flash with an adventurous appetite for orchestrated, quasi-classical strings (especially in the eerie symphonic title cut), jazz-blues-rock fusion in the mold of The Electric Flag (as on "Before Six"), and even a bit of country in the presence of top steel guitarist Pete Drake. Available in its entirety on the reissue compilation The Mercury Years.

CD - HARVEY MANDEL - "Righteous" -
Year of release: 1969

Not as consistent as his debut, due to the presence of a few pedestrian blues-rock numbers. The better tracks, though, show Mandel continuing to expand his horizons with imagination, particularly on the cuts with string and horn arrangements by noted jazz arranger Shorty Rogers. Harvey's workout on Nat Adderley's "Jazz Samba" is probably his best solo performance, and an obvious touchstone for the Latin-rock hybrid of Carlos Santana (whose own debut came out the same year); on the other side of the coin, "Boo-Bee-Doo" is one of his sharpest and snazziest straight blues-rockers. Available in its entirety on the reissue compilation The Mercury Years.

CD - HARVEY MANDEL - "Games Guitars Play"
Year of release: 1970

Feeling that he needed a singer to compete commercially, Mandel decided to abandon his instrumental format, taking on multi- instrumentalist Russell Dashiel as lead vocalist for a good share of the tracks.
Alas, Dashiel was a mediocre singer who typified some of the lesser White blues-rock stylings of the period, and the material (with a higher percentage of blues and soul covers) was not up to the level of Mandel's first two efforts, although Harvey's playing remained accomplished and imaginative (as is evident on the original instrumental "Ridin' High" and the cover of Horace Silver's "Senor Blues"). Available in its entirety on the reissue compilation The Mercury Years.

"Feel the sound of Harvey Mandel" was something of a celebration of his unique style, in which he tastefully mixed such effects as double handed finger tapping and use of simple one chord structures, largely turned into improvisational platforms for experimental blues jamming.
It also marked the extense use of vocalists, less apparant on his previous works.

- Chris Welch, London England 1998

Although this is perhaps my least favourite album, there are a couple of tunes that I really like.
It was a weird thing that I did back then. The album was done at the last minute in a studio in Chicago.
There was a whole bunch of vocals on some of the tracks like "I just wanna be there", "Candles by the Bedside", "Feel the Sound" and "Rankachank Blues".
Mark Skyer, who did the vocals, was a good singer.
Our manager at the time was Skip Taylor and of course he had his name on everything as the producer.

San Francisco's premiere audiophile label, Clarity Recordings, enters into a new phase with guitar virtuoso Harvey Mandel, who's ground-breaking 1968 release, "Christo Redentor" was hailed as a sonic masterpiece. He has combined forces with Clarity Recordings, to produce a brilliant new recording titled, "Snakes & Stripes". The concept of Clarity's two-microphone, naturally balanced, stereo soundstage and direct to computer hard-disc recording, examplifies their cutting-edge approach to production.

Mandel, a music innovator, was attracted to Clarity's recording process, which gave him the artistic freedom to explore each musical composition in a fresh and unique way. Harvey preferred to use complete and unedited takes for the finished recording, maintaining a uniquely individual feeling for each song. This is a more difficult and demanding method of recording, but the excitement and energy of the final performances speak for themselves. On "Snakes & Stripes" Harvey has once again demonstrated his cutting-edge approach to music production, as well as his willingness to embrace the latest in state-of-the-art recording technology.
David Gross

Snakes & Stripes hører ikke til Mandel's bedste - desværre, for ideen med to-mikrofons optagelser, hvor alle musikere er tilstede på een gang er ellers helt rigtig. Selve optagemetoden er for så vidt garanti for naturtro lyd (hvis man ellers kan tale om noget sådant, når emnet er elektrisk musik), men i dette tilfælde er lydbalancen til tider decideret skæv - hornene for langt fremme, guitaren for langt tilbage. Især lyder Harvey's spil i lange perioder temmelig uinspireret - som noget han har lavet bedre tidligere, eller som endda er lavet bedre af andre. De ekvilibristiske udfoldelser, som er et særkende på studieudgaverne, mangler. Altsammen overraskende når man ved, at 2- mikrofonteknikken netop er lagt an på at give live feeling i studiet.

En live-LP/CD med Wes Montgomery & Co.
Så burde alt være sagt, for alle medvirkende er kendt som fremragende musikere, men desforuden er det skønt at høre Montgomery i topform føre sig frem i en mere aggressiv stil end på studioindspilningerne (som f.eks. "Tequila"). Stilskiftet er nødvendiggjort af den større besætning, men det har på ingen måde skadet indtrykket af en gigant indenfor jazz guitarspillet.
Af noterne fremgår det, at tilstrømningen til jazzklubben var så stor, at huset var fyldt til bristepunktet flere timer i forvejen. En nærliggende parkeringsplads blev anvendt som udendørs koncertsal med hastigt opstillede højttale - og stadig står folk langt ned ad gaden for at komme ind...
Det var sådan et sted man skulle have været den mandag i 1962.

Wynton Kelly (piano), Paul Chambers (bass) og Jimmy Cobb (trommer) udgjorde på indspilningstidspunktet rytmegruppen i Miles Davis Sekstet.
Davis var i byen og hans musikere havde fri mandag aften.
Så var Montgomery der med spegepølsen.

Compact Jazz er en opsamlingsplade, hvor noget er godt, andet jævnt og enkelte numre fremragende.
Et godt sted at begynde, hvis man forsøgsvis vil sætte tænderne i en af de største jazzguitarister.


CD - WES MONTGOMERY - "Tequila" - Verve Master Edition

Wes Montgomery is widely regarded as one of the finest jazz guitarists ever. He got his first national exposure in 1948, but didn't appear prominently on a recording until 1957. However, in his tragically short career, he had a huge impact on the world of guitar and jazz in general. His unique style (often described as impossible) set a new standard in playing. The most prominent modern jazz guitarists still consistently list Montgomery as one of their major influences.

Wes Montgomery var jazz guitarist i klasse A.
Siden pladen udkom i midten af 1960'erne har den været et stadigt tilbagevendende emne på grammofonen med sit på een gang enkle og komplekse univers. Besætningen er yderst begrænset: det er stort set WM på guitar med tilføjet rytmegruppe (kontrabas, trommer og lejlighedsvis en diskret vibrafon) samt Claus Ogermann's formidable strygere. Og aldrig er strygere blevet anvendt så smagfuldt, originalt - og begrænset - som her.

Den spinkle besætning udnytter WM til at lade os høre alle guitarens detaljer:
     - oplægget til anslaget,
     - selve anslaget (hvor tommelfingeren tydelig høres),
     - det velkontrollerede sustain, og endelig
     - lyden af hænder der slipper gribebrædtet.
Keine Hexerei, rent håndværk når det er bedst.

Montgomery er selvlært - autodidakt - og på samme måde som Erroll Garner spiller han ting som ingen før ville have troet mulig. Han har været stilskabende for generationer af jazzguitarister med sin personlige frasering og let genkendelige stil, hvor tommelfingeren spiller en central rolle.

"Little Child" er favoritten, men alle numre er så gode at jeg ikke tøver med at kalde pladen en klassiker. Ved digitalteknikkens hjælp er WM løftet endnu højere op, idet de små nuancer er blevet endnu tydeligere i forhold til LP'en (men også gjort et svagt båndsus hørbart i baggrunden).
Originalpladens 8 numre er på CD udgaven blevet udvidet til 12, idet "Viwes and Lovers" er tilføjet, og
     - "Tequila",
     - "The Big Hurt" og
     - "Bumpin' On Sunset"
er vedlagt i alternativ indspilning.
En perle der stadig bliver smukkere.

The first time I heard Chet play I recall my heart thumping in my chest, my whole body and spirit being so moved and excited!
I didn't know what he was doing, but I knew I loved it!

From the age of seven, I knew I wanted to play like him. I was told that he did "recording tricks" on his albums and that you couldn't really do "all that" at once. I didn't believe that. I knew he was "for real" and all through my young years and my teens, I spent every day listening, practicing and learning.

The older I grew, the more I realized how deep the well of knowledge was that Chet was leading me to.
He educated me, through his recordings, in tone, groove, technique, harmony, swing, simplicity, and a sense of melody that I can never thank him enough for.
I've "bragged" about him all my life and shown, to the best of my abilities, the magical ways of the thumb and finger styles, that bring so many people so much joy. I've enjoyed "turning people on" to the greatest player in history.

From the outback of Australia to Chet's studio in Nashville, I'm still pinching myself. I can't believe we've finally recorded together. What an honour and privilege for me. Thank you, Chet.
Always your fan, Always your friend.

Recorded in about two days, and released in March 1965, the Pretty Things' first full-lengther still packs a ferocious punch, easily holding its own against comparable Brit R&B debuts by the likes of the Stones, Them, the Yardbirds and the Animals.
Like most first albums it's pretty much the best of their earliest live repertoire, including no less than FOUR Bo Diddley tracks plus nods to Chuck Berry and Jimmy Reed. Early group compositions like "13 Chester Street" and "Unknown Blues" were blues-derived and largely improvised in the studio, but the autobiographical lyrics show they weren't merely aping black stylings, but rather using R&B as a basis for their own personal expression.

Kort Nyt 2002.Sept.17:
Når blåt er flot
ABBA er en svensk gruppe med et internationalt image.
Det er ikke fordi deres musik har min højeste interesse, men et af deres numre har ikke-desto-mindre sat sig fast i det indre univers dengang "The day before you came" præsentationsvideoen blev vist i TV. Nummeret findes på albummet "The Visitors" fra 1981, så forleden dag lånte jeg CD'en på biblioteket for at høre, om indspilningen kunne stå distancen.
Musikalsk og teknisk er niveauet højt på alle pladens numre, frem for alt har teksterne overrasket positivt, så jeg tøver ikke med at sende hele projektet en venlig tanke - især favoritnummeret med sin let depressive stemning og fine tekst får højeste karakter:

THE DAY BEFORE YOU CAME (Andersson / Ulvaeus)
1. I must have left my house at eight, because I always do,
my train, I'm certain, left the station just when it was due.
I must have read the morning paper going into town,
and having gotten through the editorial no doubt I must have frowned.
I must have made my desk around a quarter after nine
with letters to be read and and heaps of papers waiting to be signed.
I must have gone to lunch at half past twelve or so, the usual place, the usual bunch,
and still, on top of this, I'm pretty sure it must have rained
the day before you came.

2. I must have lit my seventh cigarette at half past two,
and at the time I never even noticed I was blue.
I must have kept on dragging through the business of the day
without really knowing anything I hid a part of me away.
At five I must have left, there's no exeption to the rule,
a matter of routine, I've done it ever since I finished school.
The train back home again, undoubtedly I must have read the evening paper then,
oh yes, I'm sure my life was well within its usual frame
the day before you came.

3. I must have opened my front door at eight o'clock or so,
and stopped along the way to buy some Chinese food to go.
I'm sure I had my dinner watching something on TV,
there's no doubt, a single episode of Dallas that I didn't see.
I must have gone to bed around a quarter after ten,
I need a lot of sleep and so I like to be in bed by then.
I must have read a while, the latest one by Marilyn French or something in that style,
it's funny, but I had no sense of living without aim
the day before you came.

Coda. And turning out the light I must have yawned and cuddled up for yet another night,
and rattling on the roof I must have heard the sound of rain
the day before you came.

Deres første album.
Og deres bedste.
Takket være drivkraften og idémanden Syd Barret producerede Pink Floyd i årene omkring 1967 en række opsigtsvækkende numre - "Arnold Layne" var et af dem. Og Barret havde rotter på loftet (sandsynligvis p.g.a. stofmisbrug), men måske netop derfor var han i stand til at sætte sig ud over alle normalitetsbegreber, og omsætte det indre univers til usædvanlig musik - også efter den tids begreber.
Jeg oplevede Pink Floyd i Studenterforeningen en gang i 1967 og Syd Barret var så ganske afgjort hjernen i det foretagende. I pauserne sad han med lukkede øjne og mediterede - helt adskilt fra de andre musikere, som virkede mere interesseret i de danske piger og øl end i Barret's underlige univers.
Det geniale "Piper" album er gruppens første med Syd Barret, men blev desværre også det sidste.
Efter Barret's afsked blev gruppens produktioner (ingen nævnt, ingen glemt) langt mere ordinære, omend de har opnået stor berømmelse og tjent mange penge siden dengang.

Indspillet 1967

Kort Nyt 2003.Nov.08:
Et møde med følger
Da LP'en "Super Session" udkom i 1968 var den en milepæl indenfor elektrisk blues.
Idé og arrangement (herunder de formidable blæsere) stammer fra Al Kooper, der i forvejen var kendt som den fabelagtige orgeltramper på Bob Dylan's LP "Highway 61 revisited" og som tidligere leder af Blood, Sweat & Tears.
Guitaristen, som gjorde Super Session til noget særligt, var den legendariske Mike Bloomfield, der især havde gjort sig bemærket i Butterfield Blues Band, men nok især The Electric Flag, som samme år havde udsendt deres første LP, "A long time comin'".

Grundlæggende er alle numre på Super Session improviseret, men alligevel nåede pladen en 11. plads på de amerikanske hitlister og solgte mere end 450.000 eksemplarer, hvilket indbragte Kooper & co. en guldplade. Desuden indbragte pladen respekt: at man også indenfor den populære afdeling kunne producere jam sessions, og sælge det som "seriøs" musik på linie med jazz.
Kooper: All of a sudden, I had the respect of the CBS shorthairs.

Bloomfield kom efterfølgende til at danne skole for en mængde guitarister, som alle var stærkt påvirkede af hans smukke tone, men samtidig frække og intelligente spil. Senere er indspilningerne blevet konverteret (og remastered) til CD, hvilket kun har løftet projektet yderligere, fordi endnu flere detaljer derved er blevet hørbare.
I mellemtiden er Mike Bloomfield afgået ved døden, og Al Kooper har i 1998 udgivet bogen "Backstage Passes and Backstage Bastards", som udover en masse andre ting også fortæller historien om Super Session - en fantastisk historie.

CD - THE ELECTRIC FLAG - An American Music Band - "A long time comin'"

The Electric Flag is an American Music Band. American music is not necessarily music directly from America. I think of it as the music you hear in the air, on the air, and in the streets; blues, soul, country, rock, religious music, traffic, crowds, street sounds and field sounds, the sound of people and silence.
- Michael Bloomfield.

Det var i 1968 at jeg første gang hørte pladen. Det var hos en kammerat, han havde store 3-vejs højttalere med 15" bas, så den fremragende indspilning kom rigtig til sin ret.
Alle musikere er superbe, alle yder deres bedste og Butterfield svæver over vandene med sin stemme og mundharmonika.
Det som skiller pladen ud fra så meget andet på samme tid er indspilningens tekniske kvalitet og musikernes individuelle præstationer.
Jeg hører pladen en gang eller to om året, og er hver gang lige imponeret.
Guitaristen er en nydelse. I alt for mange rhythm 'n' blues grupper spilles der efter et fast skema, men her er der masser af variation og "huller" i lyden (pauser), så alt ikke er forudsigeligt.
Efter overførsel til CD mediet er pladen kun blevet endnu bedre, så den kan anbefales til alle som holder af elektrisk bluesorienteret musik.
Fem stjerner (ud af fem)!

Tom Waits har sit helt eget univers, som man enten er frastødt eller tiltrukket af.
Der er vist ikke nogen mellemvej.
Ved de første gennemlytninger lyder pladen mystisk, svær og verdensfjern, men efterhånden lukker musik og tekst sig op, jo flere chancer man giver pladen.
Waits og hans musikere (bl.a. Larry Taylor, som tidligere var kendt bl.a. fra Canned Heat på bas) fungerer som en samlet enhed. Der er ingen store stjerner her som flipper ud, alle trækker deres del af læsset og får tilsvarende credit.
I 1960'erne var der en Captain Beefheart på musikscenen, Waits og Beefheart har på mange måder den samme lyd og det samme univers, bl.a. er deres engelske så (bevidst?) dårligt udtalt, at det kan være svært for en ikke-amerikaner at forstå hvad der bliver sagt. Så meget desto større er præstationen, at kunne holde interesse fangen med lyd og arrangement alene.
Men det er hvad han gør, Tom Waits.
CD "Big Time", som tilmed er indspillet live, indeholder variation og nerve hele vejen igennem.
En musikalsk perle for feinschmeckere.

Kort Nyt 2003.Aug.10:
Jazz is not dead - it just smells funny.
Det var musiker, komponist, provokatør, samfundskritiker og-meget-mere Frank Zappa der udstødte denne syrlige kommentar i forbindelse med fremførelsen af nummeret "Be-Bop Tango" i 1974.
Det syrlige var så at sige Zappa's varemærke.
"Mothers of Invention" var gruppen som startede lavinen, og Zappa var hjernen bag.
De slog igennem med nummeret "Help I'm a Rock" i 1967 - hentet fra deres første LP "Freak Out".
Nummeret var, som det meste andet fra samme kant, en syrlig kommentar til samfundet i almindelighed og amerikansk livsstil i særdeleshed.
Gruppen var i København omkring samme tidspunkt.
Kurt og konen var inde og se kamelen.
Suzy Creamcheese, som også gav navn til en af gruppens sange, lå på scenegulvet under hele koncerten, pillede sig både her og der, og så i det hele taget smækfornærmet ud.
Senere blev Suzie og Zappa gift og fik banket et par unger sammen hjemme i Los Anderledes.
Skal man sige det kort - og det er svært med Zappa - kan man sige, at han var en underlig skid. Men også spændende, for han havde altid en pirrende kritisk indgangsvinkel til et hvilket-som-helst emne, det være sig musik, politik, livsstil eller hvad-som-helst. Han formåede at få os til at grine og derefter tænke en ekstra gang....
Som musiker (guitarist) hørte han efter min opfattelse aldrig til de store.
Som komponist af moderne musik fik han efterhånden oparbejdet et vist renommé - fortjent eller ufortjent.
Zappa er først og fremmest blevet en kultfigur i kraft af en bevidst iscenesættelse af sig selv - det siges at han havde sit eget reklamebureau (så glider det hele lidt lettere).
Han endte sine dage dage i forbindelse med en ukompliceret kirurgisk operation, som ikke desto mindre gik galt.
Det kostede forsikringsselskabet en stor erstatning til Suzie og ungerne.
Alting er godt for noget.

Reuben Wilson spiller orgel - og det gør han godt.
Når man så sætter ham sammen med Grant Green på guitar, så skal det jo gå godt.
Stilen er funky, blues & jazz, men ingen af kategorierne er dækkende.
De medvirkende musikere er alle så dygtige, at det egentlig også er ligegyldigt, hvad man kalder det.
En nydelse er det under alle omstændigheder.

Recorded live at The Lighthouse
Hermosa Beach, California, April 21, 1972

Sikke et drøn der er på disse numre!
Indspillet live viser de Grant Green og hans faste stab af musikere spille improviseret og frit, mens publikum deltager i løjerne.
Stilen ligger et sted mellem jazz, funk og blues - der er ingredienser af det hele, men i alle numrene får en eller flere musikerne igennem flere kor lov at fyre soloer af, så man får et klart indtryk af hver enkelts potentiale - især er Green på guitar og Shelton Laster på orgel formidable.
Indspilleteknisk er lyden fin, bas, trommer og alting står hvor de skal stå.
En fremragende plade.

Grant Green's bedste indeholder bl.a. nummeret "Back Out" (6:15), skrevet (og spillet) af Reuben Wilson.
På den oprindelige plade med Reuben Wilson varer nummeret 8:10, men ved nærmere lytning viser det sig, at det er korene med blæsersoloer som er fjernet på Green's udgave.
Ellers er pladen en fin samling af Green's de bedste - og det siger noget.

Organisten Jimmy Smith er et af de navne som alle med en smule interesse for elektriske orgler i det mindste har hørt om. For mit eget vedkommende kender jeg kun meget lidt til mr. Smith, så da jeg forleden dag i en af ACCORD's butikker fik øje på en CD med JS, tænkte jeg at dette måske var anledningen til at afprøve ham.
CD'en er indspillet i 1995, d.v.s. den er digital hele vejen igennem (DDD).

De vigtigste musikere på pladen er
Jimmy Smith - orgel
Russel Malone - guitar
Reggie McBride - basguitar
Harvey Mason - trommer

Guitaristen Russel Malone spiller veloplagt og forrygende godt hele vejen igennem, ofte spiller han det uventede, hvilket er med til at løfte numrene og give dem karakter. Han bruger tilsyneladende ingen effekter, det lyder som en Telcaster direkte ind i dyret og så færdig.
Han har klasse, den mand, så meget er sikkert.
Jimmy Smith himself kan få det til at swinge når han tøffer afsted på Hammond B3, som rent lydligt imponerer. Han skaber stemning og atmosfære med dette orgel, men er givetvis heller ikke kommet sovende til sin position, selvom jeg nok synes at en del fraseringer gentages lovlig tit, men sådan skal bluesformen jo være. Men en gedigen organist er han, den ros skal han have.
Harvey Mason husker jeg fra 80'erne, hvor han spillede på mange af de direkte skårne LP'er med musikere som Dave Grusin (klaver) og Lee Ritenour (guitar).
Der er en del gæstemusikere med på pladen, f.eks. Dr. John (Mac Rebennack) på klaver og B.B. King. De fleste gæster synger en sang, hvilket altsammen er med til at gøre CD'en meget varieret, uden man dog glemmer hvem der er hovedpersonen.

Jeg har indtil nu hørt CD'en otte gange uden at blive træt, og stadig er det mr. Malone's guitarspil der står som det mest spændende, det mest originale.
Det er en CD jeg ofte vil vende tilbage til, så fuld af stemning, atmosfære og variation som den er.

Ovenpå alle de rædsomme historier man hører om George Michael både her og der og allevegne, kan jeg alligevel ikke lade være med at synes, at han må være en sympatisk person.
Hvordan skulle han ellers kunne frembringe så sympatisk musik.
Der er egentlig ingen grund til at fremhæve enkelte numre frem for andre, for de har allesammen i den grad klasse og personlighed, at det ville være uretfærdigt overfor de forbigåede.
Alligevel har jeg selvfølgelig et par favoritter: "I remember You" hvor akkompagnementet udelukkende er en harpe, som tilmed er spillet uforskammet godt af Corky Hale, og "Secret Love" hvor der intelligent og medrivende swinges derudad sammen med et big-band .
UG med kryds og slange!

Bryan Ferry har altid haft en underlig ubrugelig stemme.
At nogen har kunnet se en sanger i ham, er mere end jeg forstår - forstod.
For her på et af sine solo-projekter bliver den svage stemme et plus - han udnytter sin "hullede" frasering til at gøre numrene anderledes og varierede. Og ofte meget bedre.
Ligesom George Michael viser poppedrengen at han kan jazze og swinge - og det gør han godt.
Musikerne er særdeles kompetente og de valgte numre er for størsteparten kendte travere.
Flere af de ikke-jazzede numre er efter mine begreber lige lovlig stillestående, men Ferry har vel haft sine grunde...
For jazznumrene alene er pladen sin pris værd.
Swing it, mr. Ferry!

Emne: Inge Andersen's Swingtet
Navn: Kurt Starlit
Dato: 15-02-2001 06:52

Inge Andersen's Swingtet har udsendt sin første CD, som er en kærkommen gave til alle, der holder af swingende jazz.
CD'en er en af den slags der bliver bedre for hvert gennemhør, især synes jeg, at det noget tilbagetrukne klaver vokser efterhånden som man får lyttet sig ind på pladen.

Swingtetten lever op til sit navn, det swinger efter bogen, mens man i enkelte numre har valgt andre at rytmer for at demonstrere gruppens alsidighed.

Forsiden af omslaget (coveret) bryder jeg mig ikke om, bagsiden ej heller: en mere eller mindre ligegyldig sydhavsø med sandstrand og palmer. Da CD'en antagelig skal bruges som visitkort rundt omkring på spillestederne, synes jeg at man skulle have valgt nogle fotos af gruppen, f.eks. et stort flot forsidebillede, og så nogle mere detaljerede på bagsiden, som går tættere på den enkelte musiker.

Inge Andersen's klaverstil er den økonomiske med mange "huller i lyden" - det giver plads til medspillerne. Det er på sin vis også godt nok, men bagsiden af medaljen er, at lovlig meget initiativ overlades til saxofonisten. Jeg vil foreslå at klaveret træder noget mere frem på fremtidige optagelser, såvel styrkemæssigt som improvisatorisk. Måske var det en ide til kommende CD'er, ligefrem at indspille et par numre uden saxofon? Don't get me wrong, mr. Stuart spiller fremragende og er en fornøjelse at lytte til, men for at få mere balance (og modspil) tror jeg det vil være til alles bedste, at klaveret spiller en mere fremtrædende rolle.

Rent indspilningsteknisk har CD'en klar og gennesigtig lyd. Balancen mellem instrumenterne er et emne som kan diskuteres herfra og til Albertslund, men for undertegnede forekom saxofonen som sagt en smule for langt fremme (trænger sig lige lovlig meget på) og klaveret en smule for langt tilbage. Denne type balance er hørt mange gange før, så den kan sagtens forsvares, men personligt foretrækker jeg altså styrkeforholdet noget anderledes.
Bassen er til gengæld helt perfekt, man hører både anslaget og klasket og de andre bilyde som gør kontrabassen til et meget mere alsidigt instrument end den vist i almindelighed regnes for.
Trommerne er også fine, der er ikke meget at klage over her, fin lyd, der bakkes loyalt op hele vejen igennem, ligesom trommesoloerne tydeligvis er holdt indenfor det afmålte musikalske spillerum. Den type soloer, hvor alt går i stå og trommeslageren krænger tarmsystemet ud i flere minutter, er en pine og en plage. Det er vi heldigvis fri for her.

Det eneste der ville kunne løfte denne indspilning markant, er at den var indspillet LIVE.
Så ville den til gengæld være en klassiker!

Inge Andersen - piano
Niels "Flipper" Stuart - saxofon
Morten Ravn - bas
Martin Roy Wade - trommer


CD'ens numre:

Indledningsnummeret viser swingtetten fra sin bedste side: swingende og med plads til improvisationer fra Niels "Flipper" Stuart, som spiller en formidabel sax med savl og snot og det hele, mens Inge spiller mere økonomisk.

Vi swinger videre på en anden gammel kending med et par små intelligente trommesoloer fra Martin Roy Wade.
Saxofonen er vist en smule overstyret (for tæt på mikrofonen?) hist og her, men instrumentets lyd og feeling er ellers hele vejen igennem CD'en meget rosværdig, fordi den på een gang er lækker og ukrukket og dog har de kanter og hjørner der gør den spændende.
Rent teknisk slutter optagelsen for brat, efterklangen fra afslutningsakkorden burde have haft et par sekunder mere - men det er en detalje.

Et af de mere stille numre, hvor jeg især bemærkede bassens fine lyd og spil. Sax'en er (som sædvanlig) superb.

Kvikt og swingende standardnummer, som gruppen virkelig behersker. En fornøjelse at lytte til, Inge gi'r den en på pedalen her.

Et af Inge's egne numre og CD'ens bedste, sjælfuldt og fordi man kan høre (bilder jeg mig ind) at Inge trives med den type stemning som nummeret bygger op. I det hele taget hører man i dette nummer mere til klaveret end i mange af de øvrige. Vals behøver ikke være kedeligt eller gammeldags, når det gøres som her.

Latinamerikansk stemning i dette rytmiske nummer fra de varme lande med en fin trommesolo af Wade. Der bygges igennem nummeret op til en formidabel og vild slutning. Det er sgu guf detteher.

Et af Inge's egne numre i fire-fjerdedele af den bløde, eftertænksomme slags. Her står klaveret hvor det skal stå, både i kvalitet og kvantitet, også saxofonen er tæt på det ideelle. Efter et kort skift til swing, vendes der tilbage til 4/4 afslutning.
Et godt nummer.

Jamen det swinger, fru Kammerherrinde, bassisten kommer hist og her ind og slår nogle frække prut, og er iøvrigt hele vejen igennem pladen meget fin. Den står hvor den skal stå, den bas.

Der huserer en let depressiv efterårsstemning i CD'ens afslutningsnummer, som er skrevet af Inge Andersen. I medium 4/4 takt sukker det afsted. Hvem der spiller tværfløjten oplyser coveret ikke noget om, men det må vel være Niels "Flipper" Stuart, eftersom sax'en er det eneste instrument som mangler på denne indspilning. Nummeret er nok det, som jeg synes mindst om, måske fordi det indimellem bliver lovlig sødladent og nuttet, først og fremmest p.g.a. fløjten. Inge's solo midt i nummeret redder heldigvis æren, så det ikke bliver helt kvalmt, men alligevel: som afslutningsnummer havde det foregående været bedre valgt. Vi er ovre i småtingsafdelingen nu, men der er en stol (eller hvad det er) som knager sidst i nummeret - er musikerne allerede på vej hjem...(?)...det burde kunne have været undgået.


(Inge Andersen, 17-02-2001 11:42)
Kære Kurt!
Tak for din flotte anmeldelse af min CD. Det er sørme lige før jeg rødmer. Du spørger et andet sted om det er rigtig at jeg kommer i Radio Jazz. Og jo, det ER altså rigtig. Det sker på mandag d. 19/2 i Egon Stanioks program. Håber vi høres ved.
Mange hilsner


(Kurt Starlit, 19-05-2001 17:13)
Netop hjemkommet fra et besøg på Long John Bodega på Købmagergade, hvor Inge Andersen's Swingtet spillede, vil jeg bare sige at Inge og hendes musikere er endnu bedre i virkeligheden end på CD'en.

Besætningen var den samme som på CD'en, bortset fra bassisten som hed noget i retning af Morten Ankerfeldt (correct me if I'm wrong).

Der var et veloplagt publikum til stede, som forstod at værdsætte de forskellige musikeres soloer. Det var mit indtryk at en del af gæsterne kendte Inge fra tidligere lejligheder, og som med deres medleven forstod at skabe en atmosfære af levende musikinteresse. Her havde bajerne ihvertfald ikke første prioritet, især må jeg rose min sidemand Erik P., som udover at have formidlet kontakten til stedet, også vidste en forfærdelig masse om jazz i almindelighed og swingtetten i særdeleshed.

Mine tidligere forbehold over for Inge's tilbagetrukne spil, er jeg glad for at kunne sige ikke holder stik i livesituationen, hvor hun meget kvalificeret gav Flipper (Niels Stuart ) det modspil som jeg tidligere har efterlyst. Og Stuart himself på tenorsaxofon og tværfløjte viste en klasse, hvor man fristes til at sige, at Danmark er for lille et land til folk af hans kaliber. Flot, flot.

Det var tydeligt at se på de vantro ansigter, som stak snuden ind fra gaden, at de næsten ikke troede deres egne ører: musik af denne klasse på et så beskedent sted. Men faktisk passer swingtetten godt til stedet med sin intime atmosfære, hvor man både kan snakke og lytte.

Hvis der bliver flere lørdag eftermiddage, hvor vi kan nyde jazz af den kaliber, er det ikke sidste gang jeg har sat mine fusser derinde.

We'll meet again!

Recorded and mixed at Bennett Studios, Englewood, NJ

Når det handler om at fortolke den store amerikanske sangbog i et jazzrelateret sprog, altså den hårdtprøvede og ædle crooner-kunst, er der ingen, der overgår Tony Bennett. Her betyder alder ikke retræte, og det nyeste udspil med den ganske betegnende titel »The Art of Romance« bekræfter hans status. Det er endnu et mesterværk fra den elegante, vitale og charmerende sanger.

Sådan skriver anmelderen på Berlingske, og jeg er fuldstændig enig: det er et mesterværk Tony Bennett er kommet op med. En klump i halsen og/eller et smil på læben er fast inventar hver gang pladen høres. Tekst, musik, musikere, fremførelse, alt er i topklasse. Ikke mindst nogle formidable strygere under ledelse af Johnny Mandel og Jesse Levy.
Bravo mr. Bennett.

I balance med universet

Mr. Croon King

CD'en indeholder Garner's tidlige indspilninger, bl.a. "Laura", som skaffede ham det store gennembrud.

Note på CD omslag:
Erroll Garner was born in Pittsburg June 15, 1921. Pittsburg is a city that produced an unusual number of great pianists.
Earl "Fatha" Hines is from Pittsburg and there can be little doubt that Hines and his style left an indelible imprint on that city's keyboard players.
Mary Lou Williams, who was born in Georgia and came to prominence in Kansas City, grew up in Pittsburg and began her career there.
Billy Strayhorn, Duke Ellington's alter ego for thirty years is another.
One of Garner's classmates in school was the brilliant modernist Dodo Marmarosa.
In the fifties, Pittsburg presented the jazz world to the horn playing Turrentine brothers, but Sonny Clark, an exeptionel player who died too young, was another major pianist who cut his teeth in Pittsburg.

While not necessarily being the case any longer, the early war years found it imperative for any jazz musician interested in launching a career to get to New York. When Garner arrived in New York to stay, the principal location for employment was 52nd Street, and it was the street that provided him with his following. During much of 1944 and 1945 he was featured with the great bassist Slam Stewart. Yet Garner's personality was such that leadership came naturally, and before the end of 1945 he was leading his own trio.

In the heyday of 52nd Street, careers were launched almost daily by the burgeoning number of small record companies whose A&R departments used Street "Clubs" almost as offices. Garner was recorded by more than a dozen labels in his early years, and some of his earliest recordings are presented here. Indeed if there was one performance that established Erroll Garner as a major pianist, it would have to be this version of "Laura". The song was Johnny Mercer and David Raskin's from the hit motion picture of the same name, and in retrospect it seems the ideal piece of material for a melodist of Garner's ability.

Garner's locale for much of the 1940's was California. There he made some marvellous records with Charlie Parker as well as continuing to expand the audience for his own uniquely styled music. SAVOY's founder, Herman Lubinsky, remembering the success of "Laura" and reading about Garner's starring performance at the first international jazz festival (Paris, 1948) was determined to get Garner back into the SAVOY studios. It was Garner's Los Angeles address more than any other factor that caused Lubinsky to open a Los Angeles office in early 1949.

The 1950's marked the ascendancy of Garner to superstar status. His composition, "Misty" is one of the all-time most popular songs penned by a jazz musician. In 1958 Garner became the first jazz artist ever booked by the great impresario Sol Hurok. Among the scores of national and international honours he accumulated were four DOWNBEAT awards, three METRONOME poll wins and several PLAYBOY poll victories.
In 1963 he composed music for the motion picture "A new kind of love". He also made guest appearances with several symphony orchestras throughout the country.
He continued to triumph until his death on January 2, 1977.

From CAMPUS CONCERT come eight tunes recorded live at Purdue University. The special brand of rapport between performer and spectator that Garner brought to ail his performances is evident throughout. In the spring of 1964, Garner mesmerized 6,000 students packed into Purdue's Music Hall for this concert. It was typical of the scores of college and other concerts Garner presented throughout his career.

Erroll Garner fit in harmoniously with the new student attitude.There was his evergreen style, his daring improvisations and rhythms, timeless freedom, and irreverent humor that made students feel as much at ease with him as with each other. It was a two-day love affair, for Garner had a special affection for the Campus concert in return. He played to standing ovations at dozens of schools, and invariably was asked to return. When asked how old he was, he jested: "About 27".
Perhaps it was no jest, for that is about how old he felt, although he had been performing since his boyhood in the 1930's.

Whenever Garner had a campus date, he liked, if possible, to show up a day early. Nothing gave him a greater sense of ease than to roam the secluded greens and stately buildings that form the campus. Nothing gave him greater impetus than to talk with students. Thus, he became a familiar figure at the Big 10 and "the little 20," having played at Yale and Chapel Hill, in Ann Arbor, and at Ohio State, Loyola University, and Podunk College.

"Feeling is Believing" was Erroll Garner's first album release of the '70s.
Garner's performances were totally improvised and always expressed the inner man, fully, naturally, and without inhibitions. His usual directive to his accompanists, who had to be attuned to him and his ranging improvisations by sound, sight, mood, instinct, and perhaps even ESP, was "play whatever you feel".

Kultur Video Proudly Announces the Release of "Erroll Garner In Performance"
Available in DVD and VHS
Features Rare Performances circa 1964 from BBC TV
This summer, Kultur Video proudly brings to home viewing audiences a very special program, Erroll Garner In Performance. The video features rare performances by the world-renowned pianist and composer of "Misty," with rhythm accompaniment. This video embodies some of Garner's one-of-a-kind improvised performances of classic standards and originals, filmed in London by BBC, during the peak of Garner's creativity and popularity. It is digitally re-mastered and available for the first time on DVD and VHS in North America. The DVD also includes a rare bonus audio track of "Misty" and an Erroll Garner photo gallery.

Born on June 15, 1921, Erroll Garner had an enormously successful career as both a pianist and composer. He began to perform at a tender age of 3 in his hometown Pittsburgh, and continued to wow the audiences throughout his career.
Newsweek hailed Erroll Garner as "The man for whom the piano was invented." Garner performed worldwide in concerts, major nightclubs, colleges, and radio and recordings, including his landmark album Concert By The Sea.
As a composer, Garner has more than 200 compositions under his belt -- his memorable composition "Misty" was named by ASCAP as one of the 25 most performed standards of the 20th Century.
Audiences will be delighted by Erroll Garner In Performance, which captures the essence of Erroll Garner, exhibiting his wit, humor and surprise. The video contains many unique features, such as special close-up shots of Garner's hand positions and Garner's imaginative introductions. This video is a valuable addition for any jazz enthusiasts and will bring forth a new generation of Erroll Garner fans.

Where do I begin?
My GOD, from the minute he started to play, tears came to my eyes. How could anybody be so ~~ good and sensitive?
Leave it to British to preserve our national treasures....
Erroll Garner plays piano in this DVD (live in BBC in England) with his working group. His famous introductions that leaves no clue as to what's coming up, including his own band members.
It's pure Gold and pure Jazz.
How smooth he enters the tune, and how smooth everybody else follows's behind comprehension for commen men.
I am a Jazz musician myself, and any time I see this DVD I am very happy, but also at the same time sick to my stomach that there are - or there were - human beings who were so ~~ good at playing their instruments.
Don't think twice, just get the DVD before it's no longer available.
Show them to your children,
show them to the teens that think they know who the cool musicians are.
Show them to whoever will watch.
Show them an American at his best.
Need I say more...

Having heard most of Garner's piano works - including "Solo Time" and "Concert by the Sea" - I agree with mr. Nevagich on the musical quality of this DVD.
It is a BBC production showing the Erroll Garner trio entertaining a London audience, circa 1964.
Being a black-and-white recording in mono, sound and picture quality still has got a reasonable level.
This is the first time I see Garner live, and was VERY impressed musically, technically and on a personal level.
Errol Garner had this inexplicable charisma, which is adding to his performance - something I am sure people will appreciate when watching him.
In his hands just about any piano-technical difficulty LOOKS easy. A sign of class, I would say.
Kelly Martin on drums and Eddy Calhoun on bass are clever musicians backing him up in an intelligent way. It is obvious that they all are having a good time. This includes the audience who is working like "a fourth member of the group", as someone (maybe Garner himself) once said.
As usual nothing is decided, Garner just plays whatever he feels, Martin and Calhoun follow their leader.
That is what jazz is all about: playing what you feel.
Garner was mentally and technically able of carrying this out into practice.
The man for whom the piano was invented, someone said.
The best piano player there ever was, says I.

Efter en koncert d. 10. marts 2001 på Rampelyset i Silkeborg, lød anmeldelsen:
De tre musikere der udgør Henrik Gunde Trio, er så tæt på den rigtige originale sound og feeling, at man føler sig i selskab med selveste Erroll Garner.
Fra første takt swinger det som bare den. Det ene nummer efter det andet svæver igennem lokalet og Garner's ånd går flere gange igennem rummet. Det er utroligt at tre mand i den grad kan få musikken til at swinge i ordets helt rigtige betydning. Man havde måske forventet, at 3 sæt á 45 minutter ville blive lidt trivielt. Men nej, det er varieret både i tempi og dynamik, og det varierede nummervalg gør hele oplevelsen til en koncert, hvor man går fra højdepunkt til højdepunkt.
Det er virkelig klassisk jazztrio af format!

Fyns Stiftstidende 2002.Febr.13

Tæt samspil

Henrik Gunde Trio

Henrik Gunde er et kendt ansigt i den odenseanske jazzverden, da han gennem nogle år har været medlem af diverse lokale grupper, bl.a. med tenorsaxofonisten Anders Medin, og i vinterjazzen kom han her som medlem af Radioens Big Band.
Vi kender ham derfor som en glimrende musiker indenfor den moderne jazz, og det var derfor med spænding, at jeg indfandt mig ved JazzFyns arrangement på MusikBiblioteket for at høre ham spille Erroll Garner's musik.

I rockkredse er det blevet moderne med kopibands af alle slags, men det er ret sjældent indenfor jazzen at høre lignende tiltag. Som regel har man hyldet en jazzmusiker ved at arrangere vedkommendes kompositioner eller soloer for et større eller mindre orkester, som det er sket i grupper som Supersax eller Dave Pell's Prez Conference, men Gunde har med sin trio taget skridtet fuldt ud og rendyrket Erroll Garner's spillestil til fuldkommenhed, ligesom de fleste af trioens arrangementer også er kopieret efter forbilledet.

Det blev en forbløffende fin aften, for trioen formåede at bibeholde den udstråling og energi, som altid strømmede ud af Garner's musik, og Gunde's spil levede i kraft af, at han evnede at trænge 100% ind i spillestilen, ikke bare i temapræsentationerne men også gennem soloerne og akkompagnementet.
Det var virkelig flot gennemført helt ned i de mindste detaljer med den hængende frasering i venstrehånden, højrehåndens melodiføring som oftest landede på off-beatet, med de mange korte triller i slutningen af en lang tone, samt i sammenspillet at skifte brat mellem forte og pianissimo.

Som sagt blev det en meget vellykket aften, som vil huskes for det tætte og intense sammenspil mellem Gunde og Holm og for energifyldte og flotte fortolkninger af bl.a. "Close to you", "More", "Yesterday" og "The Way You Look Tonight".
- Frank Büchmann-Møller


Kurt's vurdering af gruppen, efter at have lyttet deres demo-CD igennem, skal lyde noget i denne retning:

Tæt tolkning

Hvor er det dog godt, at nogen gider spille Garner i disse dage!
Og så tilmed unge musikere med en akademisk baggrund.
Jeg har haft fornøjelsen af at gennemlytte CD'en med Henrik Gunde Trio, "The Erroll Garner Experience", et par gange. Den er indspillet live på Café Ørsted i Esbjerg den 22. februar 2002, og viser en trio som spiller de mange Garner-arrangementer med en indleven, entusiasme og loyalitet, der uundgåeligt smitter af på tilhøreren.

Heldigvis forsøger Gunde ikke at kopiere Garner ned til mindste detalje, men holder den afstand der skal være: en Gunde, som efter bedste evne spiller Garner. Vi kan godt høre forskel på de to, og Gunde's CD understreger blot, at Garner var en teknisk og musikalsk ener, som man ikke sådan lige sætter sig hen og kopierer.
Jeg vil snarere kalde trioens plade en tæt tolkning, for eksempel drosler Gunde klogeligt ned i Garner's berygtede intro'er, så det først og fremmest er temaer og det regulære arrangement der kopieres.
Resten er Gunde.

Jeg har endnu ikke haft lejlighed til at høre trioen live, men det er min fornemmelse, at det swingende indtryk fra pladen kun vil blive endnu større.
I så fald er det godt.
Rigtig godt.

JUBILEE was a unique series of radio entertainment designed for the guys and gals in the American Armed Forces during World War II. None of the broadcasts were heard over the regular networks in the USA.
JUBILEE was produced in Hollywood by the Armed Forces Radio Service (AFRS) and the programs were transcribed on 16" Vinylite discs which were distributed to various radio stations all over the world. Our transfers come right off these original transcriptions.

The first JUBILEE show was recorded on October 9, 1942 and the last show in the original series was assembled on February 18, 1950. The shows were broadcasted on a weekly basis, usually on Friday nights. The early JUBILEE shows heavily featured Afro?American artists; usually presided over by a fat, cherubic m.c. named Ernie "Bubbles" Whitman, wellknown to latterday audiences as band leader Jim Europe in the 1943 all?sepia feature film "Stormy Weather".

Later shows in the series were re?broadcasts of jazz concerts or regular network broadcasts and many times the announcer was a young jazz aficionado named Gene Norman. Collecting these CDs with complete JUBILEE shows is an inexpensive and handy way to return to Yesterday when radio was the King of Entertainment. They also provide an insight to an important part of American musical history during World War II and the early post?war years.

Jeg anskaffede denne plade, fordi Erroll Garner optræder solo på et enkelt nummer (Erroll's Bounce), men hele atmosfæren ved disse shows er fantastisk - det er som at blive bragt tilbage til dengang radiounderholdning var ugens højdepunkt. Alle yder deres bedste, alt er live nu og her, Nat King Cole og Count Basie mens de begge er unge og dynamiske. En skøn stemning, en skøn plade.

4CD - JØRGEN INGMANN - "Danish Guitar Ace" (The Metronome Years 1953-1976)

Så ankom endelig 4CD'en med Jørgen Ingman - og hvilken samling!
Jeg har løseligt lyttet numrene igennem, genkender selvfølgelig de fleste, men er alligevel imponeret over Jørgen Ingmann's store kunnen og repertoiremæssige spredning. Generelt er der en elegance og lethed i Ingmann's spil, som alene af den grund placerer ham i en klasse for sig selv. Men det er nu diverse soli - ikke mindst i samspil med andre jazzmusikere på bonus CD'en - som har gjort et særligt indtryk.
I guder, sikke en samling guitarguf - gåsehuden har ikke lagt sig endnu!

Tal i parantes er pladenummeret, samt førsteåret for pladens udgivelse.
B = single plade, et nummer pr. side
MEP = EP (Extended Play) plade (to eller flere numre pr. side)
MLP = LP (Long Playing) plade
rpm = rotations per minute (omdrejninger pr. minut)

Nogle af udgivelsesårene stemmer ikke overens med oplysningerne andetsteds i denne artikel. Det skyldes ikke sløsethed fra min side, men at forskellige kilder sommetider angiver forskellige årstal. Jeg har valgt at lade usikkerheden komme kilderne til gode.

22. Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps (Quizas, Quizas, Quizas) (METRONOME MEP 1163, 1958)
23. Camodongo (METRONOME MEP 1163, 1958)
24. Frenezi (METRONOME MEP 1163, 1958)

26. Margie (METRONOME MEP 1162, 1959)
27. Jeepers Creepers (METRONOME MEP 1162, 1959)

Specielt for CD-1 vil jeg fremhæve "Jorgen's Boogie" (1959) som en opvisning i boogiens muligheder. Nummeret lyder på mange måder som en (og det skal absolut fortås i den positive betydning af ordet) stiløvelse i boogie - et forstudie til det senere mesterstykke "Echo Boogie" (1960).

1. I Can't Believe... (METRONOME MEP 1162, 1958)
2. I May Be Wrong (METRONOME MEP 1162, 1958)
3. Little Ol' Lady (METRONOME MEP 1164, 1958)
4. Stardust (METRONOME MEP 1164, 1958)
5. Two Sleepy People (METRONOME MEP 1164, 1958)
6. Rockin' Chair (METRONOME MEP 1164, 1958)
7. Trudie (METRONOME B 1315, 1959)

12. Anna (El Negro Zumbon) (METRONOME MEP 1791, 1961)
13. Sweet Talk (METRONOME B 1489, 1961)
14. Oceans Of Love (METRONOME B 1477, 1961)
15. Johnny's Tune (METRONOME MEP 1804, 1962)

21. Sunrise Serenade (METRONOME MLP 15168, 1965)
22. In The Shadows (METRONOME MLP 15168, 1965)
23. Little Man, You've Had A Busy Day (METRONOME MLP 15168, 1965)
24. Beyond The Sea (La Mer) (METRONOME B 1613, 1964...&...MLP 15168, 1965)
25. Jazz Me Blues (METRONOME MLP 15168, 1965)
26. Blue Sky (Blauer Himmel) (METRONOME MLP 15168, 1965)
27. Tovarisch (METRONOME B 1592, 1964...&...MLP 15168, 1965)

Favoritten på CD 2 er "Angelina" med sin italienske stemning og fine guitartekniske effekter, der for fleres vedkommende er tiår foran sin tid (men altså og i øvrigt: der er så mange perler på denne CD, at det er til at tude over).

CD 3:
1. Apache (METRONOME B 1445, 1960)
2. Echo Boogie (METRONOME B 1445, 1960)
3. Pepe (METRONOME B 1458, 1961)
4. Amorade (Brasileirinh) (METRONOME B 1458, 1961)
5. Bonanza (METRONOME MEP 1799, 1961)
6. Toy Balloons (METRONOME MEP 8804, 1962)

13. The Bandit (El Bandito) (METRONOME B 1614, 1964)
14. Sahara (METRONOME B 1614, 1964)
15. Corfu (Korfu) (METRONOME B 1638, 1966)
16. Seven Roses (METRONOME B 1638, 1966)
17. Zorba (METRONOME B 1626, 1965)
18. This Is My Song (METRONOME B 1684, 1967)
19. Django (komponist:Enriques) (METRONOME B 1684, 1967)
     (ikke at forveksle med Mogens "Django" Petersen's melodi af samme navn)
20. This Guy's In Love With You (METRONOME B 1703, 1968)
21. Wishin' And Hopin' (METRONOME MLP 15345, 1969)
22. The Sea Is My Soil (METRONOME MLP 15345, 1969)
23. Summerwind (METRONOME MLP 15345, 1969)
24. Fresh Air (METRONOME B 4122, 1975)
25. Trumpet Polka (METRONOME MLP 15605, 1976)

Favoritten på CD 3 er ganske afgjort "Echo Boogie", som nærmest burde have status af boogiens elektriske mesterstykke. Men ellers indeholder CD'en numre af nyere dato.

1. How'm I Doin', Hey - Hey (TONO SP 4367, 1944)
2. Delicado (METRONOME MEP 36, 1953)
3. Samba For Sale (METRONOME MEP 12, 1952)
4. Amorada (Brasileirinho) (METRONOME MEP 11, 1952)
5. Cavaquinho (Svend Asmussen's Orkester i Herning, 1958)
6. Lullaby Of Birdland (indspillet ca. 1955, ikke tidligere udgivet)
7. Jazz Me Blues (indspillet ca. 1955, ikke tidligere udgivet)
8. Pardon Me, Pretty Baby (indspillet ca. 1955, ikke tidligere udgivet)
9. Avant De Fonnues (indspillet ca. 1955, ikke tidligere udgivet)
10. Roses Of Picardy (indspillet ca. 1955, ikke tidligere udgivet)
11. Undecided (indspillet ca. 1955, ikke tidligere udgivet)
12. I Can't Believe... (indspillet 1957, ikke tidligere udgivet)
13. Two Sleepy People (indspillet 1957, ikke tidligere udgivet)
14. Champion Cha Cha Cha (1960)
15. Muskrat Ramble (1960)
16. Milkshake Twist (1962)
17. Tarzan (Tarzan The Ape Man) (GAMMA GX 01-101, udgivet på LP i Mexico)
18. Gorilla (ATCO 45-6370, 1965, udgivet som single i USA)
19. Opus 5 (indspillet 1968, ikke tidligere udgivet)
20. Baby Elephant Walk (1968) (indspillet 1968, ikke tidligere udgivet)
21. Echo Boogie 1972 (METRONOME M 25 474, udgivet som single i Tyskland)
22. I Loved You (Dansevise) (STARBOX LX 60030, 1981)

Bonus CD'ens favorit må absolut være live-indspilningen af "Cavaquinho", hvor Jørgen Ingmann i selskab med Svend Asmussen's Kvintet giver en tour de force opvisning i guitarspil. I det hele taget indeholder bonus CD'en en række optagelser fra jazz sammenhænge, hvor Ingmann's status som jazz guitarist dokumenteres til fulde. Meget imponerende.
"Echo Boogie 1972" fortjener et ord med på vejen. Det er den originale indspilning fra 1960 med tilføjet bas og trommer. Det har givet nummeret et punch som virkelig klæder.

Tekst & Musik af Søren Sebber Larsen

Kort Nyt 2003.Sept.25
Vi hepper på Sebber!
Overskriften hentyder til komponist og musiker Søren Sebber Larsen's forkærlighed for rappe slogans.
Men ellers er Sebber et gammelt bekendtskab fra musikkens verden, og derfor er det også kun rimeligt med en kort anmeldelse af hans to seneste udgivelser.

Den ene er CD'en "Somewhere down the Line", som hører til i den afdeling, hvor man roligt kan læne sig tilbage og kigge op i loftet eller for den sags skyld lukke øjnene - der bliver tid til det hele. Det er sange i moderat eller langsomt tempo, og Sebber - der synger alle stemmer og spiller de fleste instrumenter - formår at lægge nogle høreværdige arrangementer frem, hvor også sjælen er med.
En del af numrene er med engelsk tekst og en del er med dansk, men alle er de selvskrevne - og velskrevne.
Personlig foretrækker jeg så afgjort de danske, fordi numrene derved bliver mere nærværende, f.eks. "Camilla" - den pige som pladen er dedikeret til.
"Mexican Eyes" er en ørehænger som diverse radioer har lukket ind i varmen, mens et nummer som "Times" glider ubemærket ned i baggrunden.
"Lush and Mellow" er tredive sekunders a capella med Beach Boys inspireret sang.
"Jennie" er sangen om den første kærlighed, hvor Robby Turner hjælper ikke så lidt til på steel guitar.
En del af numrene har en lidt blå stemning som - tilsigtet eller ej - kan sætte sit præg på hele produktionen. Derfor vil jeg foreslå at fremtidige projekter indeholder et up-tempo nummer, f.eks. en dunkende dansk ørehænger til at trække farven over mod rød.
Ellers er det en vel arrangeret og vel spillet produktion, som lover godt for kommende projekter.
Det ser vi frem til!

Indspillet i Mox Studios, Vanløse, marts 2001

Kort Nyt 2003.Sept.25
Den anden CD er lavet sammen med sangerinden Monique:
I forbindelse med en TV-produktion i 1998 opstår denne duo ret tilfældigt, da Monique og Søren omkring et flygel finder ud af, at de faktisk holder af de samme sange fra deres - nå ja - ungdomsår. Søren forslår om de dog ikke skal berige de små cafeer og lignende med et repertoire bestående af romantiske velskrevne sange.

Og det gør de så.
Det drejer sig om sange som "On the Radio", "You've got a Friend" og "Will you still love me Tomorrow", alle i arrangementer med ganske få instrumenter (spillet af Sebber), der giver plads til det vokale. Der er med andre ord indlagt en vis afstand til originaludgaverne.
Samtlige numre viser Monique som en overmåde dygtig sangerinde med vel polerede og vel kontrollerede fraseringer, f.eks. "Natural Woman", hvor hun akkompagneret af et klaver synger så stjernerne blegner.
Musik- og sangteknisk er der klasse over foretagendet, og når Monique udover sit ubestridelige sangtalent tillige fremtræder som en smuk og attraktiv kvinde, burde alle døre stå åbne. Hvis man derfor betragter projektet ud fra, hvad det giver sig ud for - et repertoire bestående af romantiske velskrevne sange - må man sige at forventningerne er opfyldt.
Godt og vel endda.

CD - Arne Ravn - "49 minutter" - ARCD 2002

I foråret 2004 kom Arne Ravn's solo CD 49 minutter, som han selv kalder et musikalsk visitkort - og et bedre visitkort kan man dårligt tænke sig. Pladen er solo klaver hele vejen igennem, men dette til trods er der masser af variation og dynamik i numrene. De strækker sig fra musicals over standardmelodier og swingende evergreens til vild honky tonk på forstemt klaver. Frem for alt er der stil over foretagendet.
Ravnen flyver stadig!

1. Memory (fra "Cats") (2:53)
2. West Side Story potpourri (5:07):
     I feel pretty
3. Puttin' on the Ritz / When I'm sixty-four (2:50)
4. The Sentinel (2:40)
5. Honky Tonk potpourri (5:12):
     Music music music
     Alexanders Ragtime Band
     If you knew Suzie
     Don't fence me in
6. In the Mood (2:08)
7. Avanti (2:55)
8. En aften i Tivoli / Når kastanjen står i blomst på Rådhuspladsen (3:18)
9. It's been a long long time / Dream a little dream of me / A kiss to build a dream on (5:34)
10. Københavner-potpourri (7:37):
     Smil Københavner
     Nyboders pris
     Nyhavn Nyhavn
     Det er her på Nørrebro det foregår
     Erindrer De, det var i Kongens Have
     Islands Brygge
     København København
     Er København den samme
11. Ragtime (2:36)

CD - CHRIS FARLOWE "Dig the Buzz"

Numrene fra Dig the Buzz CD'en er alle indspillet i perioden 1962-65, og inkluderer dermed Chris Farlowe's første LP, hvor han bliver bakket op af de fabelagtige Thunderbirds. Jeg var så heldig at opleve både ham og gruppen i Le Carrousel i 1967, hvor de gjorde et stærkt indtryk. Stormy Monday Blues med Farlowe og hans kompetente musikere glemmer man ikke lige med det samme. For selvom han bestemt ikke har verdens største stemme, er MÅDEN han bruger den, kombineret med den ydmyge - næsten generte - fremtoning af en kvalitet som ikke er hverdagskost i musikbranchen.

Problemet med Farlowe er måske, at han står med et ben i hver lejr. Han er ikke nogen rigtig bluesdreng - dertil er han for pæn. Og han er ikke nogen rigtig poppedreng - dertil er han for grim. Derfor har pladeselskaber og managers igennem årene skiftevis stoppet ham ned i den ene kategori og skiftevis i den anden. I kraft af vedholdenhed og et ubestrideligt talent har han holdt ved, kun afbrudt af perioder med pleje af den antikvitetsforretning, som i alle årene har været mødested for samlere af medaljer, gamle pistoler og andet militært isenkram.

Jeg anskaffede Buzz-pladen for en måned siden, og kan kun sige at den står distancen. Musikerne gør stadig indtryk, og bluesfornemmelsen er ægte og gedigen. Og så er der jo desuden alle rhythm 'n' blues numrene, hvor musikerne gi'r den en på frakken - for slet ikke at tale om de regulære popnumre, som kalder minderne frem.
At høre pladen er som at være tilbage i Karrusellen dengang det hele var på toppen.
Chris Farlowe inklusive.
