Costa, Eddie - Guys And Dolls Like Vibes Guys And Dolls Like Vibes
Jazz Audiophile - LP JW 008 Jazz Workshop
Sealed, Out Of Print 2009 180gm HQ Mono Reissue Of Coral CRL 57230. Eddie Costa, Vibes; Bill Evans, Piano; Paul Motian, Drums; Wendell Marshall, Drums. Limited To 500 Copies Worldwide. “The Reissue Of Eddie Costa's Guys And Dolls Like Vibes Once Again Makes Available One Of His Few Dates As A Leader. A Talented Vibraphonist (And Also Pianist, Though He Doesn't Play It On This 1958 Session), Costa Leads A Sterling Quartet With The Legendary Bill Evans On Piano (Although He Was Just Starting To Get Noticed By The Jazz Press At The Time), Wendell Marshall On Bass, And Drummer Paul Motian, In A Frank Loesser Songbook Taken From The Musical Guys And Dolls. Costa And Evans Mesh Beautifully Throughout, And Costa's Solos Are Well Crafted, Particularly His Long Feature On The Up-Tempo Opener, "Guys And Dolls." The Leader Goes From A Soft Bell-Like A Cappella Introduction To "If I Were A Bell" To A Suddenly Driving Arrangement, In Which Evans Sits Out The First Full Chorus Before Gradually Working His Way In. Liner Note Writer Dick Katz Notes The Rhythmic Originality In Costa's Approach To "Luck Be A Lady," While Evans' Solo Introduction Adds To The Shear Beauty Of The Ballad "I've Never Been In Love Before," And This Time It Is Costa Who Delays His Entrance. Costa's Death In An Automobile Accident At The Age Of 31 Was A Tragic Loss For Jazz, And The Reissue Of Classic Dates Such As This One Has Been Long Overdue.” Ken Dryden, AMG.... more details
Costa, Eddie - The House Of Blue Lights The House Of Blue Lights
Jazz Audiophile - LP JW 016 Jazz Workshop
Sealed, Out Of Print 180gm HQ Reissue Of The Mega Rare DOT DLP 3206. Limited To 300 Copies Worldwide. “Eddie Costa Was Probably Better Known For His Work As A Vibraphonist Than As A Pianist During His All Too Brief Career, Which Ended Suddenly After A Fatal Car Crash In 1962. He Sticks Exclusively To Piano On His Final Album As A Leader, Joined By Bassist Wendell Marshall And Drummer Paul Motian. His Interpretation Of Gigi Gryce's "The House Of Blue Lights" Has A Dark Tone Overall, Very Percussive At Times And Often Incorporating Fast Runs. Likewise, His Take Of "My Funny Valentine" Is Rather Moody, As If A Breakup Between Lovers Is Imminent. "Diane" Finally Lightens The Mood With Some Mid-Tempo Breezy Bop. Costa's Two Originals Include The Upbeat Cooker "Annabelle" And The Rambling, Almost Avant-Gardish "What's It To Ya." Marshall And Motian Provide Great Support For Costa Throughout These Experimental Sessions. It Is A Pity That Eddie Costa Died At Such A Young Age Before He Had An Opportunity To Expand Upon The Work Heard In This Valuable Date.” Ken Dryden, AMG.... more details
