Editorial Reviews

In the Fifties, the depths of the Maryland Hotel near Chicago's northside housed a cellar known as the Cloister Inn, a room best known as a showplace for fine, fresh jazz potentials. Such was the case of young pianist Pat Moran's trio with vocalist Bev Kelly. In December 1957, for few weeks, the now legendary Scott LaFaro was the trio's featured bass player, and during his engagement Audio Fidelity Records grabbed the opportunity to record the trio. In 1960, LaFaro said that he didn't "like to look back, because the whole point in jazz is doing it now. I don't even like any of my records except maybe the first one I did with Pat Moran on Audio Fidelity." Sparked by Moran's solid piano and complemented by the tremendous energy, youthful spirit and unlimited talent of Scott LaFaro, along with the fine work of drummer Johnny Whited, the combo, with vocalist Bev Kelly on several tracks, produced a succession of highly zestful and appealing interpretations.

Format: Audio CD
Mr. Chell's extremely helpful review covers this musically, so I'll fill in some blanks regarding the album's content and history.

Despite the fact that this does not contain all the tracks from the trio sessions, it does contain a record of LaFaro's genius even at 21. That alone merits five stars in my opinion in spite of some missing tracks.

This album is really a double album set that is SINGS WITH THE PAT MORAN TRIO with the trio comprised of Patti Moran [McCoy] on piano, Scott LaFaro on bass and Gene Gammage on drums backing Beverly Kelly on vocals, and This is Pat Moran featuring just the trio.

Both albums are listed in various discographies as being recorded in December 1957, although the trio-only one is claimed by Moran-McCoy to have been recorded a year later. Not disputed is both were recorded in New York.

Here are some discrepancies that make these an incomplete collection of the trio recordings: Track 20 does not show up in discographies, including the one dedicated to these two albums that span pages 262 through 264 in Lafaro's biography written by his sister: Jade Visions: The Life and Music of Scott LaFaro. Also missing from this album are Spring is Here and This Love of Mine, both of which are from the Kelly album, and Stella by Starlight, When Your Lover Has Gone and Farewells from the Trio album.

Patti McCoy (Pat Moran) was my jazz piano teacher (in 1976/1977) every week for eighteen months. My playing skyrocketed with her lessons. And now, to find her playing on cd, is like I'm back with her again. God bless you Patti.

Format: Audio CD
[12/15/10: Re: the identity of the bassist on the "This Is Pat Moran" LP, see the notes below.]

Actually, there were Terri Pollard, Pat Moran (now Patti McCoy), and Alice McCleod (later Alice Coltrane), all of whom served as pianists in vibist Terry Gibbs' quartets (but not at the same time). Pat leaned a little bit more toward the joyous swinging lines of Terri Pollard than to the more legato, harmonically sophisticated Alice), but all three met with ready approval from a jazz community that tended to be suspicious of women pianists (especially if they didn't come from England or Japan). "This Is Pat Moran" also had the distinction of being recorded on Audio Fidelity, noted for putting the best hi fi systems to the ultimate test. But--sorry to report--that particular session did not include Scott LaFaro on bass, even though the obscure bassist on this date is plenty solid and extremely well recorded.

It's the other 50% of this latest gift from Spain (the home of Fresh Sounds records) that presents Pat with Scottie on bass. To hear Scottie on any of the pre-Bill Evans' sessions is a rare experience, even revelatory. Doesn't matter if he solos--his walking 4/4 bass lines are a sheer source of admiration and delight for his time (the man knew a groove!), his note choices (he constructs lines like the builder of a Frank Lloyd Wright foundation), and the sound of the bass (give Scottie much of the credit, but don't assume he'd sound that good on some other popular jazz labels of the day). It was while listening to a pile of Blue Note recordings that I happened to put some sides recorded on Contemporary by Roy DuNan on my turntable and couldn't believe the difference. Try it yourself.
