I remember Vocalist JACKIE PARIS was he a musician and he sometimes sang with a Girl maybe his wife?

How about DUDLEY MOORE? Before he was known as an actor he was a UK jazz musician.

And, speaking of the UK: Phil Seaman, Tubby Hayes, Clive Stevens, Kenneth Terodade [sp?].

JJ,

Re: For anyone truly interested in Joe Farrell's music, I suggest the CD "Outback" ... you can buy it new for just $7.36. Thanks for bringing this man to our attention.

You are very welcome and Thank You JJ. I'm going to check it out.

Changing tack completely, while sorting out my CD's ... yet again, I came across an album by the excellent, much under-exposed guitarist Paul Bollenback called "Brightness of Being" which may be of interest to you (being a guitarist/singer). His long time partner, the Australian singer Chris McNulty appears on several tracks. It dates from 2006 and has David "Fathead" Newman, Gary Thomas and Tim Garland blowing along on various saxes with James Genus on bass and drumming duties shared between Terri-Lyne Carrington and Ari Honing. Brightness of Being

Just a thought!

Ed

It seems that one of the most influential and important jazz guitarists has been completely ignored by the contributors to these threads, a man who was sought out by many the next generation of guitarists to come after him , people such as Jimmy Raney, Tal Farlow and Joe Puma to name a few. He was the one of the, if not THE most in demand guitar player of his era. Mentioning his name as part of the personnel of a CD that I mentioned recently on another thread caused me to reflect upon the recorded heritage of this musician who, amazingly, only made one recording under his own name but, as a sideman, was featured on scores of important jazz recordings. The name? BARRY GALBRAITH. If you want to read more about Galbraith, go to www.classicjazzguitar.com which has a nice bio about him (and bios on many other jazz guitarists that you may, or may not, have heard of or want to learn more about. A very informative site!

Campell,
I think I have Galbraith as a sideman on my favorite Chet Baker album White Blues; I am not sure though, but I know the rest of the musicians were French.

Alan,
You say "Both Ziggy and Billy are on Clifford Browns last recording:

Which record/album you are refering to?

Posted on Nov 12, 2011 2:06:41 PM PST
Ahmad,

The recording that is being discussed is titled "The Beginning And The End." It covers an early session on which Brown was a sideman and a jam session, as mentioned, on the night he died.

Susan,
Thank you for the answer. Yes, I remember that we discussed this album before.

FYI: It came out in the '70s on Columbia Records.

Mentioned just once on these threads but only when Zolar was discussing Steve Lacey albums was Walter Zuber Armstrong. In fact, the album Alter Ego was recorded on Walter's own label W.Z.A. Productions out of Bellingham and is a duo album, one of two that he recorded with Steve. I think that he produced most of his own albums. Let's cut to the chase. Walter, who died in 1998, was a major artist that was seriously overlooked and under-recorded during his lifetime. His main instrument was bass clarinet but he played a number of both traditional and and ethnic flutes as well. Even in this forum with so many knowledgeable contributors, his work has been given scant recognition. For a flavour of his work, there is one clip of his playing on YouTube that you might sample if so inclined. I've been trying to run down mint vinyl copies of his albums for years without success and trying to find out whether he appeared as a sideman on others that I don't know about. A highly recommended musician for those who do not know his work.

Another musician whose is still alive but not playing any more is trumpeter, Louis Smith. he name has been mentioned a few times in the forum but as far as I can recall, without checking back through all the posts, given few if any accolades except by Tom. Given the immensity of his talent, another wholly under-recorded artist though Alfred Lyons did issue a few albums under his leadership. The set that he recorded with Horace Silver at Newport and that lay in Blue Note's vaults for mega years before being finally released finds him in top form and in my view should be in everyone's collection. His first album for Blue Note with Cannonball in the front line, "Here Comes Louis Smith", has been voted into the top 100 jazz albums of all time. So why again, one might conjecture, has so little attention been given him over the years? I just put up a track from that album on my Facebook page and it received very favourable feedback. Or, you find it on YouTube. Often compared to Clifford Brown because of his long and flowing improvisational lines, he recorded 5 albums for Steeplechase during the 80's all of which are well worth acquiring. Struck down by a serious stroke in 2005, the last that I heard he was having intensive rehabilitation therapy to try and regain the ability to speak. He also appears as a sidemen on a number of albums always with top flight musicians. Get well, Louis, no matter how long it takes. We would love to see you pick up your trumpet again!

I listened to and talked with Louis Smith at the Detroit Jazz Festival just before his incapacitation. Quite a treat. At that time he was teaching and playing in (mainly) Ann Arbor (University of Michigan). After his Blue Note years, he lost a bit of fame, but did make some nice dates for Steeplechase. I'll join you in wishing him well.
