Coming Soon on CD from Delmark
A review of Linsey Alexander's previous album Come Back Baby (Delmark 838) in Living Blues magazine called it "a can't-miss release for any lover of no-nonsense Chicago blues". The "Hoochie Man" is back with all original material including the new smash Two Cats! "My woman got two cats, one in the front, the other in the back!" From the searing "Where Did You Take Your Clothes Off Last Night" to the tender "Til I Kissed You", from the comedic "Facebook Woman" to the political "Comb Over Blues" Linsey weaves his colorful stories throughout this album of blues, soul, R&B and funk. It's great fun and serious music at the same time. `Cause the blues don't mess around and neither does Linsey.
Jazz trombonist Joseph Bowie was 22 years young when this live album was recorded. It was his second album and he was establishing his own name - his brother Lester Bowie was already internationally renowned. Shortly after Joseph would form Defunkt. Co-leader Oliver Lake also heralded from BAG, the St. Louis music collective. The extraordinary flutist/saxophonist would co-found The World Saxophone Quartet the year following this Toronto concert. "What Bowie and Lake played was an impassioned and demanding music of the moment that responded as much to what was written on their lead sheets or to their spontaneous concepts as it did to the ambience of the moment." -Coda Magazine, June 1976.
Your Place Or Mine?
Best remembered for his tenor saxophone playing with Norman Granz' Jazz at the Philharmonic from 1946 to 1957 Flip Phillips was a giant of a jazz artist. Phillips moved to Florida in 1954 where aside from occasional tours he was content to play locally in semi-retirement. This 1963 duet recording with guitarist Dell Staton was one of only 2 albums Phillips made in the almost 20 years period after JATP. Your Place Or Mine? “finds Phillips in excellent form playing a variety of his favorite standards…the superior playing by Flip on such songs as “Ja Da”, “Jazz Me Blues” and “Gone With The Wind” makes this an album to look for”. -Allmusic. To be available on compact disc for the first time.
