Bud Shank - Jazz at Cal-Tech

Yup - bang, click, pow...not in the best shape but then neither am I. I have decided to embrace my shortcomings, for now.

I don't see this record offered up often and it will never be in good enough shape for the dudes at the Pacific Jazz site (Goddamn! are they doing a great job?).

But I can offer it up here first.

A pretty cool date which sports the flute, oboe combo on a couple of tracks.

The Bud Shank Quartet In Concert With Bob Cooper
Jazz at Cal-Tech

1. When Lights Are Low
2. Old Devil Moon
3. The Nearness Of You
4. How Long Has This Been Going On & Tea For Two
5. Lullaby Of Birdland
6. Somebody Loves Me
7. Moonlight In Vermont
8. The King

Bud Shank - alto and flute
Bob Cooper - tenor and oboe
Claude Williamson - piano
Don Prell - bass
Chuck Flores - drums

This session was produced by Frank Kofsky, a Cal-Tech physics student.

Welcome back! Anything that Shank and Coop set to vinyl is welcome anywhere I would imagine. Great, great post and highly recommended!

Great post with Bud Shank at Cal-Tech. I love Mosaic's set of Shank's Pacific Jazz studio dates, but this live date is hard to track down! As usual, you bring the good stuff! Many thanks.

Hi, also the track #5 "Lullaby of Birdland" has to be ripped again because is very damaged!

Thanks, Paolo
