Old Metropolitan Jazz Band & Dave Harris Trio


Giraffe Records

Released: 2nd July 2012 | 2 track funk single

Just in time to the beginning of northern hemisphere summer Giraffe Records presents two outstanding and unknown versions of one of world's most famous compositions, Summertime (G.Gershwin).

On side A you listen to the sound of the the Old Metropolitan Jazz Band (OMB), Poland's best-known Dixieland combo. The song was taken from the 1974 album entitled Dixie Funk Spirale, starts slowly and full of calmness until it blows off your mind from the middle part up to the end. It's the OMB's hand-shaking with the amazing performance of Mister Billy Stewart.
Side B presents a Vocal Jazz cool-down version performed by The Dave Harris Trio with Shirley Harris (drummer) as vocalist. This song has been taken from their album Wise Owl recorded in 1973 and catches the audience at the deepest point of musical quietness.

This pressing is limited to a total number of 400 copies and gives an impression how creative a song or composition can be interpreted by different musician.
