PAUL HORN - THE SOUND OF PAUL HORN























Paul Horn for Columbia from 1961.
Paul Horn (alto saxophone, flute); Emil Richards (vibraphone); Paul Moers (piano); Jimmy Bond, (bass). Milt Turner (drums).
More flute to boot featuring the sublime modal masterpiece "Mirage For Miles".
Highly Recommended.
This sadly out-of-print Columbia LP features Paul Horn at the peak of his jazz powers. Horn, who after 1967 would stick mostly to mood music, was a fine jazz improviser who fell between cool jazz and hard bop. He doubles on alto and flute on six originals (including the lengthy "Mirage for Miles") plus "Without A Song" and "My Funny Valentine." Also in fine form are vibraphonist Emil Richards, pianist Paul Moer, bassist Jimmy Bond and drummer Milt Turner. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide
Ripped @320 from the Collectables double cd reissue.

Hi Bacoso,
the strangest thing happened:
I (once again) visited your spot to see what you dug up this time, and I realised I'm quite a "fan" of most of the stuff you bring to us... My question is this: is it OK by you if I'd link you over at my little baby-blog?
Please visit and let me know,
peace, E-mile

"...great minds think..." at play here - i was planning to feed this to our old-as-dirt jazz loving friend as he pursues more pipes,

nice cool jazz here (not lounge music by all means), highly recommended late set from horn!

cheers,

jn

Thank you. Really like early Paul Horn and I missed this one. Even better is the fact that you got it up before Jazz-Nekko, that sly devil who would have had me on this.

This is from the year I was born, great stuff, it always amazes me what I don't know and haven't heard of. I wouldn't have known what a great player Horn was except for this blog. Thanks!

MrBill said...

Thanks! I'd always thought of Horn as a sort of mellow new-agey and/or easy listening kind of guy and so hadn't paid much attention to him. I was ignorant of earlier stuff like this.

"Mirage for Miles" has actually improved my quality of life. Tunes are always nice, but it's not often one can say that without a hint of hyperbole.

Thanks, not just for the share, but for pointing out "Mirage" - it's easy to miss out on something so subtle when out grabbing tunes from all over.

les said...

Very nice album indeed. This is my favorite album by him that I've heard. I'm a sucker for that modal stuff. Thanks!

Thank you really enjoyed the album. Nice to hear Emil Richards. Paul Horn is a name I've seen before but never took the time to check out.

thanks

hoythenry said...

Thankyou so much. Have liked the jazz paul horn since I first saw the film documentary Portrait of a Jazz Musician on TV in about 1962. Would appreciate it if you would similarly upload the other half of the double Cd that represents that album.

dka said...

Thanks for this post. Would probably never have bothered to give this a listen otherwise. Picked up a copy of the double cd. This is really great music.
