Louis Smith: Born May 20, 1931
Born in Memphis on May 20, 1931, trumpeter Louis Smith settled in the Detroit area after graduate school at the University Of Michigan. With a clean technique, a beautiful tone and great ideas, he tried his hand at the big time, recording for Transition Records in 1957, but the label went out of business before it could release it. Here Comes Louis Smith became his Blue Note debut. His next album was Smithville with Charlie Rouse and Sonny Clark (see photo). He joined Horace Silver in the summer of 1957. Silver’s Newport performance with Smith in amazing form was released 50 years later. He soon returned to teaching in Detroit/Ann Arbor area. Between 1978 and 2003, he recorded a dozen albums for Steeplechase. Visit www.mosaicrecordsimages.com for more Francis Wolff Blue Note photography.

Jazz of the Week, Vol. 1, No. 8
Dashing one off before the week is out...
It’s Dexter Gordon’s birthday today (at least for a few more minutes), so here’s his take on Cole Porter’s “Love for Sale” from 1962. Recorded during his most prolific years with Blue Note, Go! is probably his most popular album. His backing band with Sonny Clark on piano, Butch Warren on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums would return to record A Swingin’ Affair just two days later.
Dex was well known for dropping musical phrases into his recordings and here we get a quote from “Jarabe tapatío” (aka “The Mexican Hat Dance”) which fits in with the Latin themed approach to the track. Enjoy!
Keep your eyes, ears and hearts open. Peace.

No jazz pianist was more drenched in minor blues than Sonny Clark. Yet he blended his blues with a buoyant, ventilated swing. And to this day, nobody sounds like Sonny Clark.
