Fresh Catch Tuesday Playlist
There was a big batch of odd and interesting albums on the Rhapsody Just Added list last week.
Best album cover certainly goes to the Belmonts' Cigars, Acappella, Candy. The songs didn't drive me crazy start to finish, but this amalgam of My Sweet Lord, He's So Fine, kazoos, and sophisticated corporeal percussion is pretty flawless.
There were also two Chico Hamilton albums on the list (1958's Gongs East and 1959's Three Faces of Chico) that include some of the first recorded Eric Dolphy. On Three Faces of Chico, Mister Hamilton also sings: with the group, with his voice, and alone through the drum set. Interestingly, these albums also provide us with the second tracks in two weeks with a well-employed jazz cello (from Nate Gershman, in this case).
