7. Feeling Of Jazz, The Notes -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Personnel: Duke Ellington (piano); John Coltrane (tenor & soprano saxophones); Jimmy Garrison, Aaron Bell (bass); Elvin Jones, Sam Woodyard (drums). Recorded at The Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey on September 26, 1962. DUKE ELLINGTON & JOHN COLTRANE begins with a remarkable performance of "In A Sentimental Mood." Ellington's chattering, bell-like accompaniment sets off Coltrane's fulsome, rhapsodic interpretaion in sharp relief. For Johnny Hodges--one of Duke's main men, and an early employer of Coltrane--"In A Sentimental Mood" was a showpiece. The Rabbit practically owned the tune, and yet Hodges considered Coltrane's to be the finest version of the song he'd ever heard. Which indicates how deeply rooted in the jazz and blues tradition Coltrane always was. DUKE ELLINGTON & JOHN COLTRANE represented an opportunity for Trane to step back and reflect upon the elemental lyricism and swing that were at the heart of even his most adventurous flights--and to silence those nay-sayers who were carping about how his band with Eric Dolphy was "anti-jazz." "Take The Coltrane" offers up one of Duke's great vamp tunes, and illustrates just how well the master knew how to accomodate Coltrane and play to his strengths, gently prodding him into fresh melodic directions. with its insistent bluesy hosannas and tart, off-center harmonies, "Take The Coltrane" is an improviser's delight, as the pianist offers elegant harmonic contrasts to Trane's backwoods preacher. "Big Nick" is Trane's tip of the hat to tenor man and raconteur Nick Nicholas, a tipsying, elusive little melody with a hint of Sidney Bechet (and Hodges) that allows the saxophonist to range up and down his soprano. The remainder of the repetoire is from the Ellington/Strayhorn songbook, beginning with Duke's infectious minor blues, "Stevie." Ellington treats his keyboard as a mini-orchestra, and Coltrane rides Sam Woodyard's backbeat into the sun. Strayhorn's "My Little Brown Book" opens with a bell-like fantasia between piano and Elvin Jones' cymbals, as Coltrane demonstrates a variety of refined ballad inflections. "Angelica" offers an infectuous Afro-Cuban dialogue between Ellington and Woodyard, and an earnest, fervent Coltrane who doesn't rise to the tune's humor the way a Sonny Rollins would, but when Aaron Bell seats that 4/4 in the bass...look out. "The Feeling Of Jazz" is just that, closing things out with a classic blues that shuffles happily between swing and a hard rock.
Gladys Knight starred in this Alaska-based love story. The album features a number of distinguished arrangers, including Michael Masser (also responsible for Diana Ross' underrated 'Mahogany' soundtrack), Bubba Knight and the great Dominic Frontiere (take a listen to the fabulous Brannigan main theme, sadly never issued on LP). Much of the album is standard Pips material and lacks depth, often descending into lounge jazz-tinged soul. The album features one stronger funk track, a slower guitar-based jam called 'Alaskan Pipeline'. An album for completists.

I don't know how you would categorize Boz Scaggs with moments of funk, soul , pop , and almost country at times...none of these songs quite do it for me like the opening track "We Were Always Sweethearts", which is a nice uptempo jammer , but that doesn't mean the rest of the album is not worth a listen . As I'm almost sure you sample headz out there are bound to find a snip or two to work with , ripped from my collection...ENJOY!
Obscure mellow midtempo soul LP on Buddah from 1973. The record's got an easy mellow feel that's quite nice and a bit folksy -- and Heath has a progressive righteous approach that reminds us a bit of Terry Callier. The songwriting's a bit varied, but the nicest moments have that kind of hip underground sound that makes you happy you still dig through old LPs. The album includes some nice lost cuts -- like "Put Your Love in My Hands" and "You Know You're Wrong", both of which have a nice late night feel -- plus the tracks "Every Fool On Earth", "Jamey", "Brother", "Made To Love", and "I Thought You Might Like To Know".
(there is an odd pop on the track "Jamey" (not my rip) , but it kinda throws off the entire tune, the rest of the album is very much Worth checking out, I'm sure this may already be out in circulation as I posted it here once before, as well as the original source , whom I couldn't say, as I've had this for quite awhile...ENJOY!)
Here's yet another cover that does not paint an inviting picture
to the super nice rare grooves on this comp, I'm sure there are gonna be a couple there you may already know , but rest assure the others will knock your socks off so don't be misled by the cover or the title for that matter , they should have called it "Gettin' Groovy" (IMO)
