Reviews :

Oscar Pettiford became a major influence on a number of jazz artists along with fellow bassists Jimmy Blanton and Charles Mingus. This album titles as Volume 2 or Another One, Pettiford's third album as a leader for the Bethlehem label, was recorded in 1955. This exceptional date features the horns of Donald Byrd, Ernie Royal, Bob Brookmeyer, Gigi Gryce, and Jerome Richardson.

Highlights include the Pettiford-penned "Bohemia After Dark," named after the club in Greenwich Village and acknowledged as a jazz standard, "Stardust," featuring Pettiford's poetic bass faintly accompanied by pianist Don Abney, and "Minor Seventh Heaven," with Pettiford switching to cello. This is not just a bebop date; Pettiford had the range to incorporate influences like Duke Ellington and calypso, creating a full, lyrical band sound that matched his bass playing. Pettiford's legacy was cut short after he passed away suddenly in 1958 in Copenhagen at the age of 37.

"Of the Bethlehem reissues released to date by Pure Pleasure, this may be the most rewarding yet from a musical and sound quality. It contains one of the greatest versions of the standard ‘Stardust’. It has a retro sound to the jazz setting, but hit with Willie Nelson. Yet Pettiford, like John Coltrane after him, turns in a timeless sounding rendition. The recording is among the Bethlehem’s best sounding, and Ray Staff of Air Mastering has given us what I expect is the best sounding version we can expect of this music". Dennis Davis
