Vintage LP Recordings






Vintage LP Recordings

This area will be about vintage LP recordings.  My interest in LPs was heightened when Harvey Phillips asked me to assist him with documenting the recordings he played on during his long and illustrious performing and teaching career.  At the time of his death in 2010 we documented over 210 recordings for the discography of his upcoming book- "Mr. Tuba."  The book is published by Indiana University Press and was released in 2012.  This section will include reviews of important recordings.  One of the first reviews will be a Burke-Phillips All Star Band LPs.  This record includes the tuba feature- Carioca- performed by Mr. Phillips.  This piece, arranged during the course of one weekend by Lon Norman, became a "signature solo," when Harvey did solo performances with band.  More to come soon!
