Dancing In the Garden of the Muses #3

Dancing In the Garden of the Muses #3

Playing tracks by

Phil Woods, Eric Kloss, Pat Martino, Carlos Garnett, Mark Murphy and more.

Muse Records was an American record label active circa 1972 to 1996 which released jazz and blues music. Muse was founded by Joe Fields, previously an executive for Prestige Records in the 1960s. The label became a haven for producers who were leaving their failing major labels. Often they brought their musician relationships with them, as well as session tapes , some of the resulting releases were reissues from the failed labels, but most, however, were brand new music.

Volume 3 covers Muse releases 5037-5055 (5050 & 5051 were never used) -- Most of this music was recorded in 1973 or 1974 (excepting the Dorham 1960, and Vick 1966 titles) -- The set opens with a marvelous Phil Woods track followed by Eric Kloss, Pat Martino, Carlos Garnett, Mark Murphy, Catalyst, Eddie Jefferson, Kenny Barron, Teddy Edwards, Red Rodney, The Visitors, Willis Jackson, Dom Um Romao, Louis Hayes, Kenny Dorham, Harold Vick and Lester Bowie.

Another superb session, that had me in for the whole 2 hour ride! I enjoyed every sound and every moment and only knew of one or two of the artists, so this was all 'new' music to me. Highlights for me were Carlos Garnet, Teddy Edwards, Red Rodney, Dom Um Romao and Kenny Dorham. Thanks so much for sharing.

Thanks so much Mr. Lob - this series has been an interesting exercise - The Muse catalog provides the template, then I go find the right songs - Carlos Garnett was a challenge here because all the rest of the album featured vocals that I did not enjoy - at the 11th hour I discovered that the longest tune had no vocals so I accepted the 13 min playtime in exchange. For me those first two tracks by Woods and Kloss give the whole thing wings!
