"Nostalgia in Time Square - the Immortal 1959 sessions" CHARLES MINGUS
For #turntabletuesday #vinyl #recordcollection #vinlyrecords
I'm a major fanatic for Mingus, he was the greatest composer in Jazz, meshing gospel, hard bop, freeform experimental/third stream, AND classical music in his work. Bandleader, double bass prodigy, poet and civil rights activist, he was known as "The Angry Man of Jazz" because of his temper ( One of the few musicians Duke Ellington ever fired personally for fistfights on stage. Once, when confronted with a nightclub audience talking and clinking ice in their glasses while he performed, Mingus stopped his band and loudly chastised the audience, stating "Isaac Stern doesn't have to put up with this shit." Mingus reportedly destroyed a $20,000 bass in response to audience heckling at New York's Five Spot)
Because of his brilliant writing for mid-size ensembles—and his catering to and emphasizing the strengths of the musicians in his groups—Mingus is often considered the heir of Duke Ellington, for whom he expressed great admiration.
This double LP re-issue contains some of his best period, with his legendary septet featuring; John Handy also sax Booker Ervin tenor sax Jimmie Knepper trombone Horace Parlan piano Danny Richmond drums Shafi Hadi also sax and Willie Dennis trombone.
By the mid-1970s, Mingus was suffering from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's disease), a wastage of the musculature. His once formidable bass technique suffered, until he could no longer play the instrument. He continued composing, however, and supervised a number of recordings before his death. He never got to finish his last project in 1979, a collaboration with Joni Mitchell, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock and Jaco Pastorius. Joni had put words to his composition "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat" among others, along with Mitchell originals and short, spoken word duets and home recordings of Mitchell and Mingus.
His ashes were scattered in the Ganges River.

Welcome vinyl fans, it's #turntabletuesday
Today I'd like to shine the spotlight the most famous and influential album artists of all time Roger Dean His art set the standard for Prog-rock covers (with many imitators), and his style influenced much heavy metal art and is also the basis for the whole look of the movie "AVATAR"
Though he primarily works with watercolour paints, many of his paintings make use of multiple media, including gouache, ink, enamel, crayon and collage (I love the swirly oil paint effects he creates). In addition to his cover paintings, Dean is respected for his calligraphic work, designing logos and titles to go with his paintings. Graduate of the Canterbury School of Art and the Royal College Of Art, a designer, architect and publisher, he has made many contributions to pop culture. The futuristic "retreat pod" chairs in "A CLOCKWORK ORANGE" were his creation, and since 1985 with the software company Psygnosis has done many video game covers, including Shadow of the Beast, Tetris Worlds as well as a redesign of the Tetris logo.
His long association with YES -creating their iconic "bubble" logo, and working with his brother Martyn Dean on their stage set designs is what he is most noted for. I've included a few Yes covers in this post, but mostly I wanted to to show off the rarer ones I have. GUN (1968) was his very first cover, and I have the RARE EARTH "One World" album (the record company thought the art "too weird" and against the band's strong objections, made it the inner cover, putting a cheesy band photo on the outside instead) The three GREENSLADE albums I have are probably my favourite designs of his, in art school I silkscreened one on to a t-shirt.
Three compilations of his work have been published, including Views (1975) (the success of which led him to form publishing house Paper Tiger Books), Magnetic Storm (1984), and Dragon's Dream (2008). In addition, his architectural and furniture work have been exhibited in the Victoria and Albert Museum and in the Royal Academy.

An international cover art comparison for this week's #turntabletuesday
Stomu Yamash'ta & GO "GO TOO"
I have both the Japanese and U.S. versions of this album from one of the most interesting supergroups ever. Stomu Yamash'ta has an international reputation as a film score composer (Bowie's "The Man Who Fell To Earth" and the BBC's "Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy" ) and an Ambient & Jazz Keyboard/Percussionist. Born in Kyoto, Japan, and studied music at Kyoto University, Juilliard School of Music, and Berklee College of Music, and has also lectured in music. In 1972, he brought the Red Buddha Theatre company from Japan to Europe, acting as their director, producer and composer, writing and performing in the multi-media event "The Man From The East", with Morris Pert's (Brand X) Come To The Edge providing the musical backing.
His group GO has an incredible line-up; Al DiMeola (Return To Forever) Michael Shrieve (Santana) Peter Robinson (Brand X) Klaus Schulze (Tangerine Dream) Doni Harvey (Automatic Man) Paul Jackson (Herbie Hancock's Headhunters) Stevie Winwood (Traffic) and vocalists Jess Roden & Linda Lewis plus many, many other noteworthy members.

The American cover photo was taken by Bert Glinn with album design by Myron Polenberg
The Japanese cover was shot by Naru and album design by Paul May

THE FACES "Ooh La La" 1973
Kinda wavered back and forth about what to post today, decided on this great example of an album design that's 'interactive' (in an old-school way) and really captures the personality of the band. Designed by Jim Ludwig- AGI It's a photo of "Gastone", a stage character of Ettore Petrolini, an Italian comedian of the 1920s. When you press the top of the cover down, the eyes roll and the mouth opens and closes ( a la Terry Gilliam/Monty Python).
This was the final album for the Faces, Rod Stewart left after this one. It's more of a team effort because he spent so little time on it, Ron Wood and Ronnie Lane really shine on this with producer Glyn Johns deserving much credit also. The title cut was the only song ever sung by Ron Wood, and my favorite cut is the instrumental "Fly In The Ointment" that showcases the "liquored-up looseness" of their sound. Probably the best-known song is "Borstal Boys", a Faces live staple, and is obviously where The Black Crowes got their sound from!!

The Faces - Borstal Boys

It's #turntabletuesday and it's time for some BLUES !!!
OTIS SPANN "Cryin' Time"
This is a ONE DOLLAR yard sale find that is one of my most-prized albums!
The cover art just cries blues music, and it's on Vanguard Records, so the sound is superior.
His mother played guitar for Memphis Minnie and Big Maceo Merriweather mentored him when he was 14 and living in Chicago alone after his Mom died. He joined the Muddy Waters band in '52, playing alongside Willie Dixon & Buddy Guy.
The house pianist for Chess Records for many years, he is famed as the king of the Chicago blues keyboard players and has literally played with everybody you can name in blues, from Big Mama Thornton, James Cotton, Howlin' Wolf, Bo Diddley, Robert Lockwood, Luther Johnson, Eric Clapton, Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, etc, etc., etc...
