Curtis Amy: Four Classic Albums (The Blues Message / Groovin’ Blue / Meetin’ Here / Way Down) (2CD)

Ref: AMSC1316

(UK Postage Free )


AVID Jazz continues with its Four Classic Album series with a re-mastered 2CD release from Curtis Amy, complete with original artwork, liner notes and personnel details
“The Blues Message”; “Groovin’ Blue”; “Meetin’ Here” and “Way Down’”
We like our Texan tenors here at AVID, (check out AMSC1285 Tenor Sax - Four Classic Albums) and Curtis Amy was one of the best! Starting his musical life on the clarinet, Curtis soon switched to the tenor sax and made his mark on the US west coast during the late 1950s and into the 1960s. Our featured albums find Curtis in collaboration with the likes of Paul Bryant on organ for “Meetin’ Here” and “Blues Message”, Frank Butler on drums with an early outing for the fabulous vibist Bobby Hutcherson on “Groovin’ Blue”, and for “Way Down”, he is joined by the wonderful Victor Feldman on piano and two up and coming future stars Marcus Belgrave on trumpet and Roy Ayers on vibes. Oh and just for added interest, Curtis Amy also went on to play on albums by The Doors, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson and he is all over Carole King’s masterpiece Tapestry. He was also married to the dynamic singer Merry Clayton! Fine, fiery jazz indeed!
