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.

Excellent post Katonah. New to me, so thanks for the tip. Hope you are keeping well and I can only assume the lack of comments is due to World Cup immersion!

Thanks for the support G, this seemed to have bombed, much like our national side!

Yes over here too, distracted by the onslaught of football, and already sleep (and success) deprived…
Just spotted this gem, really beautiful.
Big thanks for sharing, Katonah!

Just saw this now, k -- thanks for pointing this out! I also admit that I've never really taken to the Stark Reality album or related stuff, but this is really lovely and is definitely hitting the spot. I'd love to hear more stuff like this from Monty Stark.

gotta say, I'm also really feeling those giant clip-on mics that Monty and the rhythm section are wearing, too. Hi-tech!
