Tony Cabot doesn't make Goldmine's Jazz compilation, but one has to wonder why. Cabot's band really cooks. They take off on a bunch of old favorites, each one connected in some way with a big-name school. Marching songs swing, old alma mater chestnuts take on new life. This is a fun record, and should be a real ear-stretcher for those who are unfamiliar with Cabot.

Here is a brief excerpt from the cover notes:

"By sheer musicianship, in a series of brilliant jazz arrangements, Tony Cabot has combined the traditional and the music of today in a triumphant potpourri. This album proves again that the nostalgia and beauty of the old campus favorites never fade, but bloom more than ever in a modern musical setting.

"In this series Georgia Tech really is a rambling wreck, in a blues treatment far from a blueprint. Southern California gets the soft ballad treatment, enough to make you fall in love with every co-ed. Tulane sounds suspiciously like Birdland. Kentucky pours forth as smooth as a julep. Oklahoma, it turns out, is the home of the counter-point and the fugue, in a surging Bach-to-the-campus movement.

"The eyes of Texas may bulge slightly at the Tony Cabot treatment, but dance too, at his rangy cow-poke arrangement. And the tall corn in Kansas won't be able to stop waving over the soft-shoe interpretation Tony Cabot has given to their own university ~ there never was a smoother or more inventive turn to make a good tune even better"

Don't miss this one .... unless you happen to find a never-opened, never-played album, you will be hard-pressed to locate a disc in better condition!

CONDITION

USED / PREVIOUSLY PLAYED


JACKET : Bottom edge has small split starting at open end where the cover was slightly bumped; top edge has split neatly mended with high-quality tape; title edge has slight abrasion ...title is quite clear ... else clean, bright and presentable - (my own feeling is the tape hardly affects the desirability of this record)

LINER : Clean original RCA paper liner

DISC : Looks bright and clear .... no scratches, but there are a few visible surface marks. The record plays beautifully with a full, crisp sound and a minimum of extraneous noise ... a few near-negligible ticks and pops here and there, but no skips or stops... quite a pleasurable listen

AN EXCEPTIONAL SPECIMEN

A great vintage cover!
