Freely, incandescently on song with Alice on piano, Pharoah, Jimmy Garrison, Rashied Ali, and percussionist Emanuel Rahim, in 1967. A gorgeous Naima, a six-minute bass solo, a frenzied My Favourite Things.
Shepp’s Impulse! debut, co-produced by Coltrane and featuring four of his compositions, arranged for four horns, including Wayne Shorter’s brother Alan, and the one and only Roswell Rudd. 180g vinyl.
Criss from 1959, with Wynton Kelly; Dorham 1956, with J.R. Montrose.
Small remainder cut in left-bottom edge.
Second, sixties pressing with ABC logo on the labels, in spanking original gatefold.
An awesome barrage of Impulse! reissues just in. Two original LPs, mostly monumental stuff, on one bargain disc. Check the Jazz new releases (in the left-hand menu) for the full list.
