Phil Woods - Paul (1979 vinyl LP “I Remember”)


"Buy, buy, says the sign in the shop window; Why, why, says the junk in the yard." - Paul McCartney


From the 1979 vinyl LP “I Remember”.  The album is a collection of original compositions dedicated to the memory of just a few of the musicians who have been an important part of Phil’s life. (liner note)


Julian for Cannonball Adderley

Paul for Paul Desmond

O. P. for Oscar Pettiford

Ollie for Oliver Nelson

Charles Christopher for Charlie Parker

Flatjacks Willie for Willie Rodriguez

Sweet Willie for Willie Dennis

Gary for Gary McFarland


All compositions by Phil Woods


Perhaps Phil Woods's best known recorded work as a sideman is  Billy Joel's 1977 song "Just the Way You Are".  He also played the alto sax solo on Steely Dan's "Doctor Wu" from their 1975 album Katy Lied, as well as Paul Simon's "Have a Good Time" from the 1975 album Still Crazy After All These Years.


I do not own the copyright to the music, the recording and the photos.  (Image post and video art were appropriated from the original album.) This video is posted for educational use under Section 17 U.S. Code § 107. Limitations on exclusive rights: Fair use.


All posts are rendered in old school using restored vinyl LPs.  This channel does not use recordings from CDs.  As much as possible, I attempted to remove most of the pops and crackles from the original vinyl album.  Some remastering was applied to make the performance cut through within the confines of  the loudness wars.


Hope you enjoy.
