    Bill Holmans Great Big Band.jpg

    Bill Holman's Great Big Band
    Creative World 1053 Stereo (and it shows), a re-issue of Capitol a 1961 recording of the same name. While there is no date on the CW release, I'd say early to mid-70s.
    Picked this up a record expo over the weekend. It is a worthy release. If you've ever wondered what a really Great Big Band sounds like working together, this is the LP. Stand out names in the ersatz Big Band are Mel Lewis, Bill Perkins and Richie Kamuca, Conte Condoli, Frank Rosalino, Jimmy Rowles. Bill Holman was a name unknown to me until a week ago when I bought Shelly Manne's 'More Swinging Sounds' LP. Holman was a composer and a four part piece of his fills side two of Mann's LP, quite nicely too. I saw this and was intrigued with the line up and took a chance. This release is keyed to my system or something because I cannot recommend this enough. I've bought a bunch of vinyl in the past month, this is without a doubt the standout buy.

    Jim Hall was such a great player! Loved his style.

    Found this in a thrift store in St. Louis. Grant Green is from St. Louis...?

    Not sure where GG is from, but that's just a bonus purchase. Did the store even know it was signed? or did you just skate out the front door all innocent?

    Ducked out at lunch today to pick up up few new records. I'm psyched—I've had my eye out for for this one for a while now...

    Note: Not my images btw; my collection is (partially) logged in at Discogs, and unless it's a new version that they don't have, I'm generally too busy (lazy?) to take my own pics :rolleyes:. But kudos to all of you who do...

    Green is from St. Louis and is buried there. I found it at goodwill just outside the city limits. I noticed some writing but it was in pretty mint shape so I didn't look any closer until I got home. Then I noticed what was written. Either way was a bargain, speculating on the signature is just a bonus. BTW, speaking of speculation I was trying to figure out who Mr Burton might be. Didn't Gary Burton have a famous song called Dirge? Maybe that's what is written in parenthesis? Doubt I will ever know for sure but fun to think on.

    Burton is still around, send a pic and ask him.

    Seems like there's got to be someone who could authenticate that signature. Wish I knew who to tell you but it'd be worth investigating.
    That adds a huge coolness factor. Grant was a brilliant player but to have his signature on a record cover?!!! Way cool!

    It's really odd, but I've had that happen twice now -- buying a used jazz CD, and noticing later that it's been signed by the artist. One of them was only about two years old at the time. It makes you wonder who goes to the trouble to buy someone's CD at a show and get it signed and then gets rid of it in a few years.
