Hank Garland • Jazz Winds From A New Direction



Review by Richard S. Ginell
Lots of folks in the country music streets of Nashville and the jazz canyons of New York were shaken up by this release, for country supersession man Hank Garland demonstrated that he could be just as persuasive rattling off swift, sophisticated bebop as he was playing thousands of country licks on the jukeboxes. Nothing fazes him, not even the tricky "Move," for Garland had technique to burn and a thoroughly modern harmonic approach. Not only that, a 17-year-old Boston kid named Gary Burton makes an astonishingly brash and assured recorded debut on vibes on this record, and bassist Joe Benjamin and the Dave Brubeck Quartet's unquenchably swinging drummer Joe Morello (who had toured with Garland when Garland was a teenager) are on hand from New York. This record seemed to promise great things ahead for Garland in the jazz world, a prospect cut sadly short later in 1961 by a crippling auto accident. Originally recorded in Nashville by Columbia and country & western producer Don Law (another shock to the purists' systems), Jazz Winds has been in print in some form almost continuously.

Reseña de Richard S. Ginell
Este disco sacudió a mucha gente en las calles de la música country de Nashville y en los cañones del jazz de Nueva York, ya que Hank Garland, el hombre de la superación del country, demostró que podía ser tan persuasivo desgranando un bebop rápido y sofisticado como tocando miles de licks de country en las máquinas de discos. Nada se le escapa, ni siquiera la complicada "Move", ya que Garland tiene una gran técnica y un enfoque armónico totalmente moderno. Y no sólo eso, un chico de Boston de 17 años llamado Gary Burton hace un debut asombrosamente descarado y seguro con el vibráfono en este disco, y el bajista Joe Benjamin y el insaciable baterista del Dave Brubeck Quartet, Joe Morello (que había estado de gira con Garland cuando éste era un adolescente) están presentes desde Nueva York. Este disco parecía prometer grandes cosas para Garland en el mundo del jazz, una perspectiva truncada más tarde, en 1961, por un accidente de coche. Grabado originalmente en Nashville por el productor de Columbia y de country & western Don Law (otra sacudida para los puristas), Jazz Winds se ha publicado de alguna forma casi continuamente.
