KOSMO's VINYL of the Week:
"Maria" by Coleman Hawkins and Ben Webster from The LP "Blue Saxophones"...
"A DJ named Andy Dunkley (aka The Livin' Jukebox) turned me on to this record when we were on tour with Ian Dury and the Blockheads. It's been repackaged numerous times and it was introduced to me as "Blue Saxophones", but it's also been released as "Encounters", "Tenor Giants" and as part of "The Complete Sessions". I had never heard of either of these two masters and they were in complete contrast to the jazz Ian had recommended (Ayler, Kirk, Dolphy, etc). It's hardly cutting edge, but still, top-shelf musicians doing what they do best." - KV
