I can't believe this one is out of print!

I originally purchased the vinyl edition of this when it was first released around 1979 or so. I have since purchased the CD.

This is a live trio album of Charlie with bass and drums. It is impeccably recorded before an appreciative audience. It was also my very first purchase of an album of this type after growing up on Rock music in the 60's and 70's.

I became a Charlie Byrd fan because of this recording. It was also my first introduction to the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim (I had only previously heard "Girl From Ipenema").

Here Charlie downplays any of the country style down-home pickin' for some mellow, simply beautiful playing closer to classical and bosa nova style playing.

It's hard for me to listen to Charlie's music nowadays without feeling sad over his death several years ago (I only learned about it much after the fact), because when I discovered him in 1979 he was still very much alive, performing, and recording.

If you do find this one, please do yourself a favor and buy it!

If, for some reason, it doesn't work for you, you should have no problem finding someone who will fall in love with this recording...

Long live Charlie Byrd!

Sugarloaf Suite is a beautiful record and one that I play over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over, et cetera. If Charlie doesn't get you moving with his "Meninas Brincando (Little Girls At Play)" then I feel sorry for you.

I have to admit this was more than I expected. Not that I doubt Charlie Byrd's abilities; Only lately I have been listening to so much Mingus, Ellington and Ellis, trio jazz without horns seems ribs sans biscuits.

But this should change that: the comping here is so good and the bass so full, working as heavy as any front instrument, the music here is as lush as lush gets.

What interests me about Charlie Byrd--an artist I discover on listening to Sugerloaf Suite I know all too little--is his complete lack of flash, but an ability to spin amazing webs with a simple hollow body. By giving up solos for groove, this live album will carry you more miles than you'll ever need.
