Melvyn Price

Melvyn Price - Rhythm and Blues Mel-Dor PR-1003 Sweden (1974)

"Melvyn Price? Sounds familiar but I can't quite place him". Not surprising really as Detroit born Price is virtually unknown outside of Sweden where he made his home in the late sixties.

His debut LP release in 1970 entitled "Jazzbalettrytmer" or Jazz Ballet Rhythms was pressed on his own private label "Price" after requests from Jazz Ballet students. However this album, his third, a totally obscure Swedish only release is his finest effort. A percussive and funky jazz belter!

Joining Price on congos and bongos is an all Swedish rhythm section and includes Björn Alke & Guy Roellinger on bass, Björn Wolff on piano, Fredrik Norén & Gunnar Nyberg on drums, Ed Epstein on tenor sax and Jon Dill & Luis Agudo helping out on persussion. Melvyn Price can also be heard (obviously) on trombone.

I think you'll like this one, let me know what you think...

1) Voodoo Love Dance
2) Toward Brazil
3) Behind Kungsträdgården
4) Happiness Is...
5) Five O'Clock Traffic
6) Last Train

Now available at Wax Poetics Digital

Awesome post. I have been looking for this LP for so long, since I bought the Behind Kungsträdgården comp. in the 90s with no success (always been outbid or unable to afford when on market etc. etc.). Thanks you so much for sharing a real gem.

Great post, and it could not be different. Your blog is amazing.I�d like to ask you to repost the Sebasti�o Tapaj�s' album, " E Sua Guitarra C�smica". I�m really in the mood to take listen on it.
Thanks for your culture contribution.

Happy new year blessings from Stockholm!

Thanks for this nice piece and all other great posts of 2007!

Partly out of inspiration from your blog I've just got around to set up my own. First post is a compilation of music I picked up during my travel in Peru last summer! Not only peruvian stuff though, but rather groovy latin tunes from the 50's and onwards.

Check

out if you are interested and I would be honoured!

I hope you keep your blog up and running and have yourself a great 2008!

dylanfan said...

The artist's name and this record was recently briefly mentioned in a German Jazz magazine - and I tried your generous share - thanks a lot, great stuff. Still looking for the vinyl, the German branch of Amazon does not even offer a picture of the cover. The download section of the Waxpoetic website does not work if you want to d/l it from Germany - quite ridiculous, right?
Thanks again for sharing this rarity!

I've on all occasions liked things like sand clocks, lava lamps, and the like to well-wishing of rightful dish out time staring at it as a cut of catharsis. In a route, it helps me with meditation, to relieve stress and strain and well-grounded fantasize about nothing. That's why since I was a kid, in place of of dolls and cars I've perpetually at ease more of such pieces like sand clocks, lava lamps, tuneful boxes etc. So I was most charmed when I start the[url=http://www.dealtoworld.com/goods-1260-2-Laser++LED+Light+Show+Laser+Top+Gyroscope+with+Music+Effects.html] 2-Laser + LED Light Appear Laser Outstrip Gyroscope with Music Effects[/url] from DealtoWorld.com answerable to the Toys section. It's like a harmonious caddy, a spinning better, and a light divulge all rolled into one. Which is spectacular amusement! The gyroscope transfer whirl for about a minute. The laser slight show with accompanying music makes this gyroscope a rather unique bauble that my friends have also been most amused with.

My dogs are also beautiful outr?nearly the laser gyroscope I got from DealtoWorld.com. They always follow the gyroscope as it spins, although at first place they kept barking at the laser diverting dismiss accompany, and also because it produces music. But after they got employed it, they've stopped barking but virtuous watch over following the gyroscope whenever I start spinning it. Kids are also pretty amused next to it. Sometimes it's proper to have diverting toys throughout the ancestry so that you can go away the small on while the kids are being amused or playing with it while you go prepare viands or sock changed. The gyroscope is a particular such toy with this purpose.

The gyroscope I bought from DealtoWorld.com has a dragon as a intent plot on it, and produces a gegenschein indicate with red, dispirited, and unripened colours. Take a look at the pictures I've uploaded of the gyroscope with laser light show. The music produced from the gyroscope is not that great but allowable enough to accommodate any chic guest to the house. The gyroscope is red and black, making it look extraordinarily cold, and somewhat virile with that dragon imprint.

The music dismount attack plain gyroscope runs on 6 LR44 batteries, which are replaceable anyway. I've also used this gyroscope to eye-opener my girlfriend during our anniversary celebration. I did the cheesy matter of decorating the hostelry room with roses and when I led her in, I started up the gyroscope as well so that the laser light register produces a fresh effect. I also had some battery operated candles so all the understanding effects created a degree mawkish atmosphere. She loved it, past the going, to my relief. I also bought the candles from DealtoWorld.com. These days it seems to be my non-fulfilment shopping placement in favour of all gifts and ideas for emotional occasions.

Since Christmas is coming, this laser go down make clear gyroscope can maybe be a great Christmas contribution in behalf of the toddler or in spite of the favoured! Alternatively, the gyroscope can absolutely be a kindly addition to the ordinary Christmas decorations. I can imagine placing it near the Christmas tree and peradventure spinning it when guests arrive in the house. Looks like [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com]DealtoWorld.com[/url] is getting my business thus far again!
