Titles inspired by Johnny Griffin’s sojourn in Pentonville nick (for outstanding income tax) at the start of a Ronnie Scott’s stint earlier in the year. With clarinettist Tony Coe on song; Sahib Shihab and co.
A facsimile reissue of the first half of the Ronnie Scott’s recordings.
The second half of the 1969 Ronnie Scott’s recordings, as originally issued.
With Peter Sellers, Princess Margaret, Samantha Eggar, Amen Corner and the Rolling Stones in the house.
1963 set pulsing with extended, deep modal grooves — including the dancer Please Don’t Leave Me. Originally issued by Argo, strangely — though recorded by MPS-man Gigi Campi in Cologne, which figures.
Thirteen swinging jazzbos from seven nations — including Zoot Sims and Sahib Shihab.
The fine Clarke-Boland trumpeter in a small group setting (including Sahib Shihab, and Tony Coe on clarinet) with strings — think of the great Stan Getz LP Focus — brilliantly charted by Francy Boland.
Recorded for Vogue in 1968, the day before Latin Kaleidoscope, with Kenny Clarke and Francy Boland taking sideman duties, alongside Sahib Shihab and co, eleven in all, relaxed but cooking.
With The Kenny-Clarke Francy-Boland Big Band at Ronnie Scott’s in 1970.
