thanks I`ll give it a whirl....
The first solo album by Stanley Clarke featuring Chick Corea and other great musicians:
"You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To" Helen Merrill (1955)
...with Clifford "Brownie" Brown (trumpet)
What a great find!-and then with our Niels Henning Ørsted Pedersen on double bass. Those two guys has made some good things together over the years. NHØP is sadly not around anymore. Another great album with Oscar Peterson:
I agree with you. NHØP was one of the most jazz bassists. He was a solid partner for the great Oscar Peterson. Grappelli and Joe Venuti have been the story of jazz violin.
This album is a little jewel.
It testifies the only meeting between the pianist Bill Evans and the harmonicist Toots Thielemans.
It was released in 1979. The recording was made the year before.
Bill Evans – acoustic & electric pianos
Marc Johnson – upright bass
Eliot Zigmund – drums
Larry Schneider – flute, tenor saxophone, soprano saxophone
Toots Thielemans – harmonica.
"I Do It for Your Love" (Paul Simon)
"Sno' Peas" (Phil Markowitz)
"This Is All I Ask" (Gordon Jenkins)
"Days of Wine and Roses" (Henry Mancini, Johnny Mercer)
"Jesus' Last Ballad" (Gianni Bedori)
"Tomato Kiss" (Larry Schneider)
"The Other Side of Midnight (Noelle's Theme)" (Michel Legrand)
"Blue in Green" (Miles Davis, Bill Evans)
"Body & Soul" (Edward Heyman, Robert Sour, Frank Eyton, Johnny Green)
Maybe the greatest jazz trumpeter with one of the best vocal jazz groups coming from France.
When France or better to say Paris was the second home for American Jazzmen.
