Dick Morrissey
Jazz For Moderns 1965

Still Sealed. Record Store Day 2017 release, 1000 only, Previously unreleased session from 1964. Recorded for radio broadcast and taped for the series “Jazz For Moderns", this previously unreleased sessions heard on this new album are especially valuable. Not only does it plug a gap in the Morrissey discography – they are thought to have been recorded in early 1964 - but because, through Jackie Dougan’s indisposition due to tonsillitis, Bill Eyden is also featured, making this the first recorded example of the regular line-up of the later 1966/67 Dick Morrissey Quartet. If Morrissey’s début album showed him to be a logical successor to Hayes, then these follow-up sessions provide a much stronger case for the younger man’s own, if anything even more soulful, individuality. Throughout this record, there is a wonderful, almost tangible, sense of a band enjoying its work, something which in the stone-faced world of British modern jazz wasn’t always apparent.
