ART FARMER QUINTET - FROM VIENNA WITH ART














Art Farmer for MPS from 1970.
Art Farmer-Fluegelhorn;Jimmy Heath-Sax,Flute;Fritz Pauer-Piano;Jimmy Woode-Bass;Erich Bachtragl-Drums.
Produced by Joachim Berendt.
A couple of tracks that really stand out on this solid lp are the speedy samba "Cascavelo" and the Jimmy Heath penned "The Gap Sealer".
This album features a standard quintet with fluegelhornist Art Farmer, Jimmy Heath (on tenor, soprano and flute) and pianist Fritz Pauer taking the solos. What makes this out-of-print LP more special than normal are the six rarely performed compositions, none of which became standards but all of which hold one's interest. Tom McIntosh's "The Day After," the Farmer-Heath collaboration "Con-Fab" and Fritz Pauer's "Whole Tone Stomp" are good vehicles for these musicians' talents. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide.
Ripped @320 from the original vinyl.

Ah, Bacoso -

my fine furry drums-loving MPS-peddling maniac. . .now this is certainly a fine stream of MPS'! I did not know of this Farmer outing but from your write up, it looks like a winner,

Cheers,

You sodded primate; do you work for MPS?!

After listening to this for the past couple of days, I was so damnded hooked on "Cascavelo" and "The Gap Sealer" that I just ordered the Japanese K2 24bit reissue for some (rare here) big money! The wife hit the ceiling. . . bloody primates,
