Label - Black & Blue
Recorded at Pathe-Marconi Studio, Paris on December 7, 1967 (#1-8) and May 10, 1972 (#9-11)


Milt Buckner (1-8), Wild Bill Davis (9-11) - organ
Buddy Tate - tenor saxophone
Floyd Smith (9-11) - guitar
Wallace Bishop (1-8), Chris Columbo (9-11) - drums

Buddy Tate is heard on two separate sessions recorded five years apart. The first features the big-toned tenor saxophonist with organist Milt Buckner on a ballad-oriented date, along with drummer Wallace Bishop. Unfortunately, the recording engineer used a bit too much reverb during a number of the songs and Buckner's organ-playing borders on easy listening, sounding like a mall demonstrator from the late '60s. Even though the latter session with Wild Bill Davis (heard only in part, as it was originally issued on LP in full) has a similar format, Tate benefits from the latter organist's more inspired playing. Guitarist Floyd Smith and drummer Chris Columbo are also on hand, though they pretty much stay in the background, with Smith taking a brief chorus in the bluesy setting of "Willow Weep for Me." Overall, these sessions are a bit low-key, though from the evidence of the cover photo, they obviously were marketed by the Black & Blue label toward late-night listening. ~ Ken Dryden

AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow
All of Hank Crawford's many recordings for Milestone in the 1980s and '90s are worth picking up by his fans although this reasonably enjoyable outing is not one of the more essential ones. The soulful altoist is joined by Dr. John on piano and organ, guitarist Melvin Sparks, bassist Wilbur Bascomb, Jr., drummer Bernard Purdie and a five-piece horn section (Houston Person and David "Fathead" Newman get a tenor solo apiece) for a set mostly comprised of group originals plus the old ballad "Say It Isn't So" and Thomas A. Dorsey's spiritual standard "Precious Lord"; Dr. John takes a vocal on his "Tragick Magick."

Erdogan Çaplı, who is a serious educator besides being a musician, was born in 1926 in Istanbul. He began studying Classical Music as a culmination of the young Republic's musical enlightenment. He completed his early education at the Ankara State Conservatory as a master commentator on the piano and the instrument. Not satisfied with being a successful classical music commentator, Çaplı came forward with his identity as an educator and open-minded musician. Unlike the conservatory musicians we are used to today, he follows both contemporary music genres in the world and also interested in the music of our country. In the 40's we find it with Ismet Siral, another prodigy that we have made known (with jazz music) pioneering work in our country. Erdogan Çaplı, who gave his first concerts with Erol Pekçan, will also be in Ankara Radio for many years. The "Daldan Dala" program will also prepare the "Radio Kids Club" program with the teacher training person who has made great efforts in spreading the classical music.

Erdogan Çaplı, who went to the US in the mid-50s, continues his music studies in New York. Here he will perform jazz music in various clubs. Pop music writers in Turkey as the beginning of Tulay's Germaner "Vetch Field" of the show. This song is also portrayed as the first example of our tastes as a traditional Turkish custom of light western music. in the borders of our country at the end of the 60 "first", before too Helix in 1957 by Erdogan in Turkey would take place outside the boundaries. In the master pianist American radio, each market presented millions of American potburi decorated with Turkish motifs.
Not satisfied with this, Çaplı wanted to present these tastes and compositions to wider masses. This was the only way to get a record. After a period of increasing fame on the radio program, "Dot Records" from the major record labels of the time will be offering him a record label. And so Çaplı's "Piano Pasha" album will be released. The most famous actuarial magazine in our country is the Life Magazine. On October 16, 1959, the plaque informed us that "The label gave it the highest rank of Turkish tradition, Pasha, and named it 'Piano Pasha'. The American people were now dancing with the classical and folk music of the Turks, drummers and pianists. "

King Masters ‎– KCD 6012
 
This set brings together the work of two artists who delighted in turning language into humorous jive-talk. Gaillard's 14 tracks are all from the mid-'40s and feature three different ensembles: his 10-piece orchestra, a trio under his name, and another trio dubbed the Boogiereeners. His seemingly off-the-cuff riffing belies a dazzling set of skills. Wordplay and invented phrases roll through everything with infectious exuberance. Gaillard was not only an excellent singer, but also an inventive pianist and guitarist. The six numbers that close the set offer a fine contrast in vocalizing as Babs Gonzales carves out his own corner of the scat-singing world. He worked in the '50s, and was a contemporary of Lambert, Hendricks & Ross. However, where they created lyrics to popular instrumental jazz numbers, Gonzales created his own songs, which drew heavily from the pre-beatnik era of jazz talk. ~ AMG
