One for the Bishop
Check out the first two Kansas City Sound CD's here on CD Baby. They are from live performace recordings. This third CD was done in Steve Burgh's studio in Kingston, NY. Harvey Kaiser, the leader, plays tenor, baritone sax and clarinet. Ed Diehl is the guitarist, Fred Smith plays trumpet, Eddie Bert plays trombone, Marvin BuGaLu Smith plays drums, Bill Crow plays bass, and Billy Allred plays piano on six tracks. On the other seven, the late Joel 'Bishop' O'Brien is the pianist, and he also sings on 'Hackensack Lady.' Larry Packer adds his violin to one track, and Rita Kaiser sings on the Billie Holiday tunes 'Fine and Mellow Blues' and 'What A Little Moonlight Can Do.' This was Joel 'Bishop' O'Brien's last record date, and the CD is dedicated to his memory.
