This latest release by the ever impressive Trunk Records consists of two jazz recordings from 1964. The first four tracks. credited to West Indian trumpeter Shake Keane. are taken from an unreleased acetate belonging to Garricks private collection. The final four tracks consist of The Shake Keane & Michael Garrick Quartettes A Case of Jazz EP that had a limited pressing of just 99 copies. Much like Trunks earlier Michael Garrick release Moonscape (which was recorded in the same year). this is indeed obscure 1960s UK jazz. The first four cuts from the untitled acetate are very much jazz of the Bossa Nova variety. The Hastings Girls Choir feature on the first two tracks and their lush vocals add a cool exotic vibe. Tracks 3 & 4 are taken from the flipside of the acetate and were recorded with The Gordon Langford Orchestra. The final four tracks from the A Case of Jazz EP are freer flowing and Keanes trumpeting accompanied by Garricks piano makes for some quality early modern British jazz. Moody album closer Regrets is a stunner and best showcases how well they both compliment each other.
