SAHIB SHIHAB - SAHIB'S JAZZ PARTY



















Sahib Shihab for Debut Denmark from 1963.
Sahib Shihab - Alto Sax,Baritone Sax,Flute; Allan Botschinsky - Flugelhorn; Ole Molin - Guitar ;
Niels -Henning Orsted Pederson - Bass; Alex Riel - Drums; Bjarne Rostovold - Snare Drum

All killer modal to bossa to blues business from this terrific super rarity recorded during Mr. Gregory's long sojourn in Scandinavia supported by a veritable who's who of then emerging Danish talent.
I've ripped it from the oop Japanese cd reissue but used the original lp format for this post. I couldn't stretch to the wallet pounding price of an original lp!

This album, cut live in Copenhagen in '63, is a rolling joy. Led in by Niels-Henning Orsted Pederson's walking bass, and the twin-drum kits of Alex Riel and Bjarne Rostovold, opening track, 4070 Blues, comes on like some pastoral theme tune from the wildest ever '70s kids' TV show, Shihab's urgent, rough-house flute wigging out and digging in as the rhythm section keep it moving ever forward, like some carnival of woodland animals hopped up on mushrooms and licorice root. Shihab's clenched, cautious introduction to Charade - "The title... song... from... the Stanley. Donen. Pro. Duction. A UNI! Versal release... titled 'Sharard' or 'Sha-raid'..." - suggest that he may not have been completely sober during the recording, but his playing, as soloist and bandleader is totally in control, pulling the band on a twisting, mystical ride that conjures up images of Cary Grant's Euro playboy world wrenched at the seams by free psychedelic revolution.

More class, thanks Bacoso

Tremendous post!What I love about this blog is the selfless attitude to sharing and the unpatronising attitude of Bacoso.Us lucky readers get a quality rip of the full lp PLUS a write up which isn't full of smug self satisfaction about owning the album and condescendingly giving us a chance to hear just one track.
Thanks Bacoso long may your work continue!

Thanks for this excellent post that reflects the excitement of hearing Shahib Shihab live. He came often to Brussels but I was a bit too young at the time to be allowed into jazz clubs (and didn't have much money either ... although the late Pol from the famous Pol's Jazz Club was always keen on seeing youth showing interest in jazz and there would be an occasional free beer as an encouragement).
Cheers

My comment regarding a certain condescending and patronising blog was not aimed at katonah who I just noticed left the comment before mine.

Laurent - Clap Yo Handz said...

Thank you so much, can't wait to hear that!

Don said...

I agree with the previous commenters that this is a superb album. I rate it 5 stars!

I don't wish to sound ungrateful, but are these not the same tracks that can be found on Conversations (1963), released 1992 on Black Lion?

Sous Les Patio La Plage said...

Superb LP.
Rarely comment, but will use this as a bulk thankyou for the following:
Mal Waldron - Spanish Bitch
Sadao - live
Michael Cochrane - Elements

It's a Great site, thanks.

jazztap said...

merci

Bacoso said...

don - you are correct however the black lion release was licenced to Japan where it was reissued with the original cover art plus the bonus tracks as well.As I wrote in my blurb I have ripped the cd to match the original vinyl format. Funnily enough the Japanese issue uses the original cover art and is packaged in a fascimile mini lp sleeve yet when you get the cd out its marked Black Lion!!!

chazz said...

B-Man

Laurent - Clap Yo Handz said...

gilhodges said...

This one's a burning beauty. I am grateful to have it. Thanks Bacoso.

neil said...

Have Conversations as mp3, but looking forward to seeing the alternative packaging. Many thanks...

baf said...

found an original today! 30 euros, thanks bacoso

Burningbluesoul said...

This s on Cd for a minute, and then vanished again--it is officially between licensing. In this difficult circumstance would you perhaps reconsider reposting. If not, I understand. Thank you either way.

Bacoso said...

I'll reup sometime next week
