    Retitled Josie Jazz Series 1962 reissue of Herb Geller's 1959 Jubilee release of "Fire in the West". Love hearing Harold Land and Kenny Dorham here. (I've seen a few Herb Geller records in the past, but now I'll be snapping them up when I get a chance :D).

    The other day, I was talking with a coworker who is also into Jazz, and found myself in the position of having to defend so-called "West-Coast Jazz". It's strange to me that you could (or would want to—) make hierarchies of "good" music. Whatever...

    Alto Saxophone – Herb Geller
    Bass – Ray Brown
    Drums – Lawrence Marable
    Piano – Lou Levy
    Tenor Saxophone – Harold Land
    Trumpet – Kenny Dorham

    D2D and a killer bottom end. A solid recording that has it all including a killer drum solo track, and great horn section.

    That's crazy that there are still people who are into jazz, but go there with regards to "west coast" stuff.

    I guess you could count yourself lucky that you at least have a co-worker that can have a conversation about it. All I've ever gotten when I talk jazz with people is something like, "I like jazz. But not the stuff that is 'be-blop-da-lop-dee-dwidley-dee. Do you know what I mean?". Ugh, not really, but whatever.

    Back on topic, but how could anybody go all 'that's West Coast' with that Geller Album? That's a heavy hitter lineup.

    I've got this somewhere, I bought 'because....'. Played a couple of cuts and pulled for the high shmaltz factor, should I go back and give it more time? Or was my first assessment correct?

    Sammy is really groovin' and a swingin' on that one! Album has a really good sound quality to it! :music: Do you have the original "Verve" copy? That one has a different cover, my reissue album cover is totally different.

    Yes, you should play it!
