Jack Marshall & Shelly Manne - Sounds !

A sweet little set from mid 60s Capitol Records — a wonderful blend of jazz and percussion, handled by two of the most inventive musicians on the LA scene ! Jack Marshall's probably best known for his excellent arrangements for the label on sets with singers — but here, he's playing guitar alongside the percussion of Shelly Manne — who handles a whole host of unusual instruments, always with the fluid swing he brought to his jazz recordings of the 50s! There's definitely a lot more jazz going on here than the heavier percussion you'd hear on a bachelor pad record of this nature — and the open strings on Marshall's guitar make for plenty of nice bossa inflections, too.

Thanks SO much.Jack Marshall was great and so far ahead of his time--a much better guitarist than Charlie Byrd imo.Do you have his ''18th Century Jazz'' LP? that would would be great .
