The Stark Reality

The Stark Reality
Acting, Thinking, Feeling

Another top tip from that man Quimsy. Very special music from the Stark Reality.

Been hitting the Now-Again 3 cd compilation recently, and although the Hoagy Carmichael Music Shop is taking some time to grow on me, the live recording of ATF has blown my socks clean off. 

Recorded live at the WGBH-TV show in |Boston August 1968, ATF is drawn of 3 movements. Beautiful arrangements including Monty Stark on the vibes blended with modal brass accompaniment. 

Quite lovely.
