It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, between bebop and hard-bop, between singles and LPs. It is . . . the ten-inch zone. The mid-fifties saw a transition away from 78s towards two kinds of "long-players" - 7 inch singles that ran as long as the old 10 inch 78s, and 12 inch LPs. For a brief period, the 10 inch LP was the medium of choice to release "popular" music, and tonight's podcast looks at six of these ten-inch releases (well, one dates from 2016 but has music from the mid-fifties). Gil Melle – GIL MELLE QUINTET VOL 4; Jay Jay Johnson – JAY JAY JOHNSON; Kenny Drew – VOL 1 INTRODUCING THE KENNY DREW TRIO; Wes Montgomery – LIVE AT THE TURF CLUB; Cal Tjader – CAL TJADER TRIO; Howard McGhee – HOWARD MCGHEE VOLUME TWO.
