Soho Scene '66 Vol. 2: Jazz Goes Mod Default Title
RSD 2020 release. This album contains twelve tracks you'd have heard in some smoke-filled Soho basement back in '66. Featured amongst the British acts, are the swinging "What's Her Name" by the Ian Hamer Sextet , where the trumpeter is joined by Tubby Hayes , Dick Morrissey , and Alan Skidmore . You also get furious fingers hammering those ivories on "Cox's Pippin" courtesy of the Mike Carr Trio . From over the other side of the pond, the compilation brings you the legendary organist Richard "Groove" Holmes with "Boo-D-Doo", a track that just cooks all the way through, and gives you a clue as to how he got his nickname. The final track is a fantastic vocal from Kenny Rankin , "In the Name of Love". He re-recorded it in '74, but it's that '66 sound that makes this track groove. So, put this album on, close your eyes, and let the music transport you back in time... Also feature Humphrey Lyttelton Big Band , Laurie Johnson Orchestra , Tubby Hayes Quartet , Sonny Rollins, Ronnie Scott, Stan Tracey, Rick Laird, and Phil Seamen , Charlie Earland Jr. , Jimmy Coe , Hugh Masekela , Richard "Groove" Holmes , Freddie McCoy , and The Three Sounds .
