Red Rodney (1976) Yard’s Pad

Yards Pad (lp) discogs


Sonet, SNTF 698


UK, 1976



Hard Bop


Found my first Red Rodney album in a small vinyl shop in London; This is my second Red Rodney album. It was recorded in Stockholm at Metronome Studios, 4th & 5th March 1976. Note-able only because I picked this album up in Mickes on Söder.

I only picked up the first album because Red Rodney was a trumpet player and I was interested in hearing his style. I don’t often find Red Rodney releases in the shops, so I grabbed this copy of Yard’s Pad. Bop or hard bop will be found on this release, which was going out, or was out, of fashion in the mid-70’s.
