Jazz Release of the Week




Frank Gibson's Parallel 37

Parallel 37

(2008 ODE Records)


I picked up an original vinyl copy of this release some years ago in Real
Groovy, Auckland and it has been a firm favorite of mine since first play.
Quite simply it is a stunning jazz album. Originally released on ODE Records
in 1981 it features the cream of NZ jazz musicians at that time (many of
them still active on the scene today) playing alongside some of the top
American jazz musicians visiting Auckland in 1980 & 1981.


On the original LP release there are six tracks, 3 on each side, pretty
standard for the day. On this CD re-issue those same tracks are there but in
addition there are 3 tracks featuring guitarist Emily Remler. The session
with Emily was recorded just a few days before her death in Sydney in 1990.


The lineup on the release brings a smile to ones face and is too large to
list here - check the cd out and go buy a copy. Not only is it an iconic NZ
jazz release it is a world class jazz album, especially now that it has the
additional 3 tracks.


Well done to Frank Gibson Jr and ODE Records NZ for getting this gem out
there again.
