Thread Name: Chad Mitchell Trio!!!
Subject: RE: Chad Mitchell Trio!!!
Here's a late response to raredance (10 years after his original post). I loved Chad Mitchell's 2nd lp--I thought it was one of the most creative and original recordings by a former "folksinger".   Some great experimenting with jazz (Stuart Scharf and Bob Dorough were involved in the record), and a great range of material. Loved it all!

Also, inbetween that LP and the Virgo Moon CD, he recorded an LP on Bell records (which, to my way of thinking, didn't work--he wasn't in great voice, and he ended up watering down some great songs--including the fabulous "Goodbye and Hello" by Tim Buckley.

It's too bad that Virgo Moon didn't do better. It's a fine CD==and I was always hoping he would put out some more solo works. I'm wondering if there might be anything out there on independent labels?
