MGW-60002: The Jazz School

[Front Cover] Label Type : blue Wing type A
Matrix Number : SIDE-A MG W60002A MF1    A1    I
SIDE-B MG W60002B MF1    A1    I



Comments

MGW-60002 is an original issue of EmArcy MG-36093.

B-1 and B-4 previously issued on EmArcy 16008 (78rpm) and 16008x45 (45rpm).

My copy is the earliest pressing with MF1/MF1 matrix stamps, while Mr. Hasegawa's copy is a bit later pressing with MF1/MF2 matrix.

Inside The Groove

Yet another nice bop compilation featuring three different sessions.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

This compilation contains three different session as below:

A-1 thru A-4 are by Art Mardigan Sextet featuring John Williams on piano. A refreshing bop session with unique sound colour.

B-1 thru B-4 are by Paul Gonsalves Sextet featuring Clark Terry. A bit corny, but also a nice mainstream session.

A-5 and B-5 are by Joe Gordon Quintet, and are outtakes from MG-26046 and MG-36025. On these two tracks, Joe Gordon's brilliant trumpet blows so great, and Art Blakey's propulsive rhythm gives the entire mood of this great hard-bop session.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

8 out of 10
