Steely Dan – Android Warehouse

£6.50

Steely Dan

Old Regime

5032427042405

Steely Dan was basically formed by two ex-New York Band College members, Donald Fagin and Walter Becker, who became the great co writers and driving force behind this mainly studio band in 1971.

These recordings are from their pre-David Katz ‘Can’t Buy a Thrill’ album in 1972, which immediately attracted great acclaim for its tunes and immaculate musicianship which was to be the trademark of Steely Dan.

Over the years, Musicians of high calibre came and went in the Steely Dan line-ups, and the band became unhappy with live performances which basically ended in 1974, due to Fagin’s dislike to being frontman of the band.

This album had the instant recognition of Fagin / Becker / Steely Dan material in the formative years and is a must to any admirers of this great seventies band’s excellent and perfected material, which is timeless and a major contribution to Rock Music.

Walter Becker unfortunately passed away on the 17th September 2017 in Manhattan, New York and the world lost one of it’s great musicians.

Martial Solal – The Classic Years Volume 2

£7.50

Martial Solal

The Classic Years Vol 2

The great French Jazz pianist and composer, Martial Solal was born on the 23rd August 1927, in Algiers, French Algeria, North Africa.

 

1963 saw Martial make a well appreciated and stunning appearance at the Newport Jazz Festival on Rhode Island, U.S.A.

 

In the 60s his regular trio featured Guy Pedersen on Bass and Daniel Humair on Drums, and from 1968 onwards he performed and recorded with the great Lee Konitz, not only in Europe, but also the U.S.A.

 

Solal has continued to record and perform and has written a piano method book called ‘Jazz Works’. He continued to enthral his audiences and classes his own work as ‘an eternal researcher of Jazz’.

 

His influences during a long career are Fats Waller, Errol Garner, Thelonious Monk, but he has his own unique and improvising style, and is certainly one of the Jazz scene’s most professional and accomplished pianists, as the recordings on this compilation will clearly demonstrate.

£6.50

Buddy Greco

The Classic Years Vol 2

Buddy Greco ‘The Classic Years Volume 2’ is a memorial to the lifelong extraordinary talent and achievements as a revolutionary Jazz Musician and crooner. Buddy sadly passed away on the 10th January 2017 at the age of 90.

His peers have called him a singer’s singer and a musician’s musician. He is Internationally recognized year after year as one of the top Jazz pianists and vocalists of our time. He appears at top night clubs, concert halls and symphonies. He has been a guest on every major television show in the United States and throughout the world. By order of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, Buddy performed at a Command Performance which also featured the Beatles.

He began playing the piano at the age of four. As a child radio personality and gifted pianist, he was a performing veteran by the age of 16 when Benny Goodman ‘discovered’ him. Buddy travelled the world with the Benny Goodman Band for four years as pianist, singer/arranger. Since then, Buddy has sold millions of records and received gold records for hits such as, “Oh Look At Her Ain’t She Pretty,” “The Lady Is A Tramp” and “Around The World”. He recently celebrated the completion of his 65th recorded album and boasts some 100 singles ranging in style from Jazz to Country/Western to modern Pop. A particular favourite is the album he made with the London Symphony Orchestra in which he arranged, conducted and played piano.

Buddy was recently inducted into the Philadelphia Music Alliance’s “Walk of Fame.” He can also be found in the Encyclopaedia Of Great Musicians and the Encyclopaedia of Great Jazz Singers and Musicians.<BR
Buddy has never stopped his relentless drive to stay on top. In 1993 he toured again with the ‘Salute to The Benny Goodman Band,’ this time to headline, star and conduct. The tour encompassed 72 cities drawing capacity crowds and standing ovations.

In between stints at Trump’s Plaza, the Desert Inn, the Cafe Royale and various world tours, Buddy writes music, records albums, scores film and television shows and plays a little golf.
