The Bud Shank Quartet

Here's a great album. Recorded in 1956, I'm pretty sure this is Bud Shank's first major solo release. I've posted a lot of Shank's work, and I think he's an artist that really epitomises the west coast cool jazz scene. While his more commercially styled pop/jazz work later on is good, his work here and on subsequent Pacific Jazz releases from the early 60's is the really good stuff.

Reading the liner notes on the back really makes you appreciate the LP format. While such extensive notes were more a staple of Jazz records, you'd be hard pressed to find anything like this in any genre today. And I love the cover art on this. Hip and Modern. Basically this whole album is the essense of cool. Dig it.

Personnel:
Bud Shank: Alto and Flute
Claude Williamson: Piano
Chuck Flores: Drums
Don Prell: Bass

01 - Bag Of Blues

These are the Bud Shank recordings I've been looking for - the West Coast sounds of the late 1950s. I saw all the guys on this record together with Bob Cooper and June Christy back in 1958. Great stuff!

Do you have any more from this period?

Thanks so much for the share.

Regards - Mel

Hi Mel. I don't really have any more Bud Shank right now, but I'm always on the prowl at the record shop. I found this record only last week, and if I get any more you can guarantee they'll be up here.
