Kerry Dancers and Other Swinging Folk songs Product Information
Kerry Dancers and Other Swinging Folk album for sale by Johnny Griffin was released Jan 30, 2001 on the JVC/XRCD label. Digitally remastered by Kirk Felton (2001, Fantasy Studios, Berkeley, California). Many straight-ahead bop musicians would never consider recording traditional folk songs from the British Isles, but that's exactly what Johnny Griffin does on The Kerry Dancers and Other Swinging Folk -- and this Orrin Keepnews-produced album just happens to be one of his best releases of the 1960s. Joined by pianist Barry Harris, bassist Ron Carter, and drummer Ben Riley, the big-toned Chicago tenor man turns his attention to four traditional folk melodies: "The Londonderry Air" (also known as "Danny Boy"), "Green Grow the Rushes" (a Scottish favorite), "The Kerry Dancers" (an Irish piece), and "Black Is the Color of My True Love's Hair" -- all of which work perfectly well in an acoustic jazz setting. ...See Full Description

Amazing Bud Powell, Vol. 2 CD (1955)
Kerry Dancers and Other Swinging Folk CD music These two CD volumes (all of the music has also been reissued on a definitive and "complete" Blue Note Bud Powell four-CD set) differ from the original two LPs in that, in addition to the inclusion of some alternate takes, they are programmed in strict chronological order. The influential bebop pioneer (who not only set the standard for bop pianists but largely invented the style) is heard on fine trio performances from 1951 (with bassist Curly Russell and drummer Max Roach) and 1953 (during which he is matched with bassist George Duvivier and drummer Art Taylor). Highlights include "A Night in Tunisia," "Reets and I," "I Want to Be Happy" and "Glass Enclosure." ~ Scott Yanow
