    Anyone here have a copy of Verve records compilation "JazzClub: Bass."

    It is out of print and I have been looking for a copy all over the place. My last copy was lost the last time I moved.

    If anyone has a copy, do they think they could burn me one or if you know where a copyis for sale, could you let me know.

    Thanks,
    Dave
     
  2. From the All Music Guide:

    Selecting representative recordings of bass players is an especially tough task, given the relative scarcity of recordings of bassists as leaders, but the Ralf Enoch/Horst Hohenböken Jazz-Club series has come up with a fascinating anthology from PolyGram's archives. Although there are some unavoidably glaring omissions due to ties with other labels — Jimmy Blanton, Milt Hinton, Scott LaFaro, Charlie Haden, for example (Christian McBride wasn't on the scene yet in 1989) — the collection still makes its way from the nifty Slam Stewart hum-scat swing of "Beyond the Blue Horizon" (1944) through the mainstream '50s and closing with the emergence of Jaco Pastorius and Stanley Clarke in the jazz-rock '70s. "Prayer for Passive Resistance" is an exciting example of Charles Mingus' sudden shifts of tempos; Percy Heath is shown off effectively on the MJQ's "The Golden Striker." Oscar Pettiford's solid, booming sense of time in Tal Farlow's "Blues In the Closet," Ray Brown's self-explanatory "Solo for Unaccompanied Bass," and Clarke's spellbinding "Bass Folk Song" are standout tracks. Other bassists anchoring their bands here are Chubby Jackson, Eddie Safranski, Paul Chambers, Red Mitchell, Sam Jones, Ron Carter, Niels-Henning Orsted-Pedersen and Richard Davis. — Richard S. Ginell

    thanks for the description.

    I have been looking all over for a copy. It has been out of print for a while and I can't seem to find it.
