LIVE & COOKIN’

HUGH BRODIE AND IMPULSE
Live And Cooking At The Wild Oat
CADENCE JAZZ RECORDS – CJR1004 (LP – USA - 1981)

An early 80's live recording from be-bop saxophonist Hugh Brodie.   Live and Cooking is the title of this LP and that’s really what it’s all about.  100% high octane hard bop!

The backing band is an upstate New York blues quintet called Impulse.  They may have been a blues quintet but they do have real jazz chops.

Five original tunes and an improvised version of Sonny Stitt's "Bud's Blues".  .



This LP has not been re-issued on CD but if you dig the music, I recommend you pay a visit to Hugh Brodie’s website and get his latest CDs.

Credits
Hugh Brodie - Tenor Sax, Vocals

Russ Scotti - Flute, Alto Sax
Jay Friedman - Trumpet
Larry Ham - Piano
Pat O' Leary - Bass
Ed Ornowski - Drums

Tracks
A1. Falling Dreams
A2. Bud's Blues
A3. Dot
B1. Choo Choo Charlie
B2. El . Toro
B3 Dot





Rip from original LP. Some surface noise at the end of track A2 .  Did not want to split B2 and B3 as one is the continuation of the other.

  2. Always liked this album. As you say the title is pretty appropriate: A real cooker! In 1981 Hugh Brodie recorded another album for Cadence with J.R. Monterose which is equally cooking imo: J.R. Monterose & Hugh Brodie - Bebop Loose & Live
    Ripped it a while ago (flac), to my surprise download-links are still working:

    1. Hi Brian,
      i have recently discovered your blog, fantastic too!
      We kinda complement each other, I'm more into Western European Jazz, you're more Eastern oriented. Together we cover the whole continent!
      Cheers

  5. Thank you all for all the rare Cadence vinyl! Years ago I asked Bob Rusch, the owner of Cadence, why he didn't reissue more Cadence records on CD. He told me there wouldn'be any interest!
