Here and Now (The Jazztet album)
Here and Now is an album by the Jazztet, led by trumpeter Art Farmer and saxophonist Benny Golson. It features performances recorded in 1962 and was released on the Mercury label; this was the Jazztet's first recording for Mercury after they moved from Argo, following A&R man Jack Tracy. The Jazztet's first three albums had stressed the compositions of one person, but this one had "a diverse program that included contributions by each of the primary soloists and an equal number of standards and jazz tunes from outside the band." "Tonk" was the name of a card game played by Ray Bryant. Alternative takes that appeared may have been made with the intention of releasing them as singles, or they may have been part of rehearsals of the tune. Farmer's "Rue Prevail". Mabern's "Richie's Dilemma" has a Latin tinge. Golson's "Whisper Not" dates from 1956; the following track, "Just in Time", was arranged by Farmer. Golson is featured on "Ruby, My Dear", played as a ballad. Moncur does not play on "In Love In Vain", which has "a loose, conversational approach to its statement of the melody", but he composed the final track on the original album, "Sonny's Back", a comment on the return from exile of saxophonist Sonny Rollins.
The Allmusic review awarded the album 3 stars. "Tonk" – 6:46 "Rue Prevail" – 4:23 "Richie's Dilemma" – 5:07 "Whisper Not" – 5:17 "Just in Time" – 5:22 "Ruby, My Dear" – 5:06 "In Love In Vain" – 7:08 "Sonny's Back" – 4:02 "Tonk" – 3:01 Bonus track on CD "Sonny's Back" – 2:51 Bonus track on CD Art Farmer – trumpet, flugelhorn Benny Golson – tenor saxophone Grachan Moncur III – trombone Harold Mabern – piano Herbie Lewis – bass Roy McCurdy – drums Kay Norton – production Tommy Nola – recording engineering

Joseph Francis Robert "Joe" Dolan, otherwise known as Boots, was an Irish entertainer, recording artist, pop singer. Chiefly known in Ireland for his association with showbands and for his innovative style and high pitched singing voice, he had a wide appeal with many international fans, his energetic and charismatic stage performances were well known as was his long standing advertising slogan: "There's no show like a Joe show". The only Irish singer to reach number one in the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, Dolan was a constant presence on the hit parade in Ireland and overseas. Dolan was born at the County Hospital, now known as the Midland Regional Hospital, County Westmeath on 16 October 1939, the youngest of eight children in a Roman Catholic family, he was orphaned at a young age – his father, a bicycle shop proprietor, died when Joe was eight. He sang in school, his mother had encouraged him to take up the piano, he made his first stage appearance at a talent show held in a marquee on the Fair Green in his native Mullingar.
Dolan's voice was high with a comprehensive range without the use of falsetto and he made comprehensive use of a technique known as melisma which gives the vocal a plaintive edge reminiscent of Arabic religious chanting. Vocal gymnastics such as this were not common in the 1960s and 1970s but were made popular by artists such as Mariah Carey, Stevie Wonder and Whitney Houston, among others; as well as securing his first "real" job as a compositor in local newspaper The Westmeath Examiner in 1958, he got his first guitar. After learning some skills on the instrument, he and his saxophone-playing brother Ben started to play in local bands, they soon formed a band of their own – The Drifters. Not long afterward, the band was renamed Joe Dolan and the Drifters and Joe Dolan and His Drifters to avoid legal action from the American band of the same name; the Irish musical landscape in the 1960s was dominated by the showbands. The first single "The Answer to Everything", was released in September 1964 reaching number 4 in the Irish charts.
Dolan and his band were managed by Seamus Casey. In the summer of 1968, some of the band left, with Dolan and Casey citing "musical differences" as the reason, although in the official biography by Ronan Casey further elaboration includes references to unhappiness about financial issues. Dolan never achieved any notable chart success in the U. S. but had good acclaim with concert audiences in targeted areas. His first tour in 1965 followed an offer. Instead, he decided to play a whistle-stop tour of Irish-American venues in places such as Chicago, New York and Boston. An added benefit to this string of engagements was the opportunity to hear American music which hadn't yet been played in the UK and Ireland; the first song gleaned in this fashion was the Jim Reeves classic, Pretty Brown Eyes which Dolan released on the Pye label in 1966. A second US tour in 1967 led to an appraisal in Las Vegas and a substantial offer to appear there but he turned it down. In 1980 he accepted $10,000 a week plus board and lodgings to perform for six weeks over September and October at the Continental Lounge of the Silverbird Casino on the Strip in Las Vegas.
Playing 64 shows and selling out most of them, he and his band returned to Ireland to be rebooked for Vegas in January 1981. Although this trip was a further success, he turned down subsequent offers to return to Vegas; when word of this got out, other venues approached him with increased offers, thinking he was hunting around for the best deal, but the singer refused them all. Several other attempts were made through the years to entice him back but he never returned – except on holiday. In 1978, he became the first Irish artist and one of the first Western acts to tour communist Russia. Joe toured the segregation era in South Africa and was on a UN blacklist for defying the artists' ban. After reforming the band Dolan recorded a song called "Make Me an Island", written by the songwriting duo Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood, for Pye Records in conjunction with Shaftesbury Publishing; the track was a hit in England and led to Dolan's first appearance on the BBC's Top of the Pops and helped to make him the biggest Irish star in the world at that time becoming a number one hit in 14 countries, as well as reaching Number 3 in the UK, becoming Joe Dolan's only British Top 10 hit, one of only four hit singles Dolan had in the UK.
In Ireland, the song peaked at number 2 in August 1969, the same week it was Number 3 in the UK. It has been claimed that Dolan was the first Irish star to appear on Top of the Pops, although this supposes that neither The Bachelors nor Val Doonican appeared on the show between 1964 and 1969. After the recording of Make Me An Island, Dolan was approached and signed by the MAM Agency whose major star was Tom Jones. Follow-up singles "Teresa" and "You're Such a Good Looking Woman" made an impact. Other single releases such as "It Makes No Difference" and "You and the Looking Glass" were not big hits at home in Ireland or in the UK, but they were international successes. A collaboration with writers Roberto Danova and Peter Yellowstone in the mid-1970s produced more singles which made little impact on the British domestic market but did well internationally. "Sweet Little Rock'n’ Roller" was the first of a number of reasonable successes for this team but
