    cool...you don't see tight camera framing like that anymore!!!...she's as much acting as singing...a very hip woman...though she was really a bit stage shy!!...

    she was married to bobby troup..a long time music guy...she always had great players...budimir is one of the best..big fave...and of course barney k

    How did you find out it was Budimir? Beautiful job of accompanying. Budimir was the first guitarist to be influenced by Trane , as evidenced on those records on Revelation. Then he got into the studios, and didn't make anymore records under his own name, but still played on some good jazz sessions. Like Howard Roberts, DB was a natural at that type of work.

    absolutely s, those revelation lps are interesting..the side long tracks on sprung free...despite being kind of basic jammy lo-fi, they definitely show trane and free jazz influence ...the west coast pat martino of sorts

    budimir had already played alongside eric dolphy in the 3rd generation chico hamilton quintet...and had played with bud shank, pisano and billy bean...when bean was in la for that short while

    great player



    cheers

    Anyone know who's on this (NSFW) clip? Not Barney or Joe, I don't think, I used to assume Howard but could be Dennis Budimir?

    The recording scene was tricky in LA back then. According to Mel Lewis, if you became well-known as a jazz player, because you worked in jazz clubs at night, like Lewis did when he lived in LA, you started to get less studio work.
    Budimir realized this, and stopped playing in clubs and recording the types of things he did on the Revelation records, and enjoyed steady employment in the studios. You can't have it both ways, and he sounded bitter about the whole thing in all the interviews I've ever read with him.
    He certainly had what it took to become a major jazz player, and i think he knew it. He didn't sound too well on a recent you tube thing.
    Lewis and Billy Bean moved back to the East Coast.
