Performer Notes
  • A memorial concert was held in 1962 not long after the death of pianist and vibraphonist Eddie Costa in a car wreck; evidently, many musicians volunteered to perform at this Village Gate event but only parts of two sets were recorded and issued. Clark Terry, joined by Dick Hyman, Art Davis, and Osie Johnson, perform on the first side following comments by Willis Conover and Terry. The fl?gelhornist starts with his delightful "Simple Waltz," showcasing his fat lyrical tone, although the rhythm section is not well-recorded and is a little too much in the background. Trombonist Willie Dennis joins the quartet for a down-and-dirty arrangement of "Things Ain't What They Used to Be," which is highlighted by Terry's final solo where he alternates between a fl?gelhorn in one hand and a muted trumpet in the other. Coleman Hawkins leads off the second side; he's joined by Urbie Green, Markie Markowitz, Sonny Clark, Roy Haynes, and Chuck Israels. Like Terry, he starts off his first number, "I'm Confessin' That I Love You," with just the rhythm section. Hawkins is bursting with energy and imagination in his rendition, ranking this effort equal to or exceeding anything else he recorded in the 1960s; unfortunately, the song is suddenly faded out just after the six-minute mark. The interplay with the added horns on an extended take of "Just You, Just Me" is quite enjoyable, though Markowitz's trumpet seems somewhat off-mike at times. This long unavailable LP will be difficult to find. ~ Ken Dryden
