obssessed with this at the mo... can't quite tear myself away
deathly horace and all the serious youths of the netherlands
singing along to myself the jeri southern version
and the sweat dripping
and all those stupendous shots of big chords and rimshots and fat strings
horace silver quintet - senor blues (live)
great stuff, some times a record just hits the spot and i can fully undersdand why this hit yours. and i rekon that croud were digging it in there own way, when i saw ray charles i was transfixed.
"Serious Youths of The Netherlands" ... now there's a group title!
ta ally ... this was lovely and you know what they say?

Yes, oh yes. I highly approve of this sort of thing x
Lovely lovely stuff. And it does look just as good as it sounds.
Have you noticed that Fopp are banging out 'Horace-Scope' for three quid? It's from 1960 so it's pretty much this group, and it's got some great tuneage on it.
Three of the musicians (Cook, Mitchell and Taylor) also turn up on a Blue Mitchell album from 1965 called 'Down With It' which I personally consider to be the biz, featuring a shakin' 8 minute twist-friendly version of Hi Heel Sneakers. Recommended.
But what are Junior Cook's albums like? Don't think I've ever heard any? Have you? There's always something to buy next!
Magical. It's so good the tears are rolling down my cheeks.
