A 2.1 Spins and Needles ErrolVs Back, in Town The Roston Sunday Globe September IS, 19B6 1 it- Xio Record lime 4 1 -I 6 Ky WILLIAM BUCHANAN Erroll Garner's new album release on M.G.M. is timed perfectly to coincide with the opening of his engagement Tuesday night at Varty's Jazz Room in the Bradford Hotel. Sound in the Round And their LP has appeal to those who like the prettier things like, "Quiet Nights," "In the Still of the Night," and "Bluesette" and then the flip side has a collection R. B. and rock things that are professionally handled.

to insiders in the music huflt ness, but within the past yeaT she has built up a small, hut ever-increasing popular following. This will be an important year in her career, becausd her albums on the MGM label are getting plays on the air and she's appearing regularly on television. Her current album is a beautiful thing with some magnificent arrangements quite similar to the ones Barbfa Streisand works with. The arrangements are hy Don Costa and Miss Kazan sings magnificently throughout the 11 songs in this LP, concluding with a ttuly brilliant and moving version of, "I Loves You Porgy." Hail, Mamas and Papas; Shalom, Al Tijuana! 111 We heard little ahout F.rroll Garner for the past couple years. His album releases have been all too infrequent; with Hill Marlowe off the air, disc jockeys haven't been including his records on their shows and this marks the pianist's first multi-niRht booking in Boston in several years.

We should never think of Garner in terms of yesterday because he's very much a musician of today and hopefully many tomorrows. While this album is the pianist's current release, it was something that was recorded during one of his concerts in the Spring of 1964 at Purdue University. It was Garner's respect, for melody which brought him an initially large following and over the years he has always remembered this. Of course, the Garner charm, drive, spirit and humor are evident throughout, but he never allows the listener to forget what song he's playing. Sure, we still love the older Garner things such as, "Penthouse Serenade," "Will You Still Be Mine," "Robbins Nest," "Lullaby of Birdland" and all the others, but we like the Garner of today and of 1P64 when these songs were excitingly presented by an exciting pianist.

FIRST IN EIGHT: Erroll Garner, who recently returned from a two-month tour of Europe, opens Tuesday at Varty's Jazz Room in the Bradford Hotel. This is Garner's first Boston nightclub visit in eight years. He'll appear nightly through Sunday, plus a matinee on Sunday from 4 to 7. One of the many memorable moments at the Newport Jazz Festival in July belonged to Fr. Tom Vaughn, an Episcopalian priest from Midland, who plays jazz piano strictly as a hobby.

Fr. Vaughn has been fortunate to have the opportunity to occasionally work with some of our more talented musicians and so this has helped in taking his talents considerably beyond the "hobby" stage. Fr. Vaughn's style was influenced by his esrly devotion to recordings by Art Tatum, Bud Powell, Oscar Peterson and Al Haig which shows you how high his standards are. An RCA-Victor Blbum features Fr.

Vaughn on one occasion when he was heard at the Village Gate in New York city. He works brightly and interestingly with top rhythm accompaniment provided by Art Davis on bass and Elvin Jones on drums. Singer Lainie Kazan has been known for a few years N.Y. Philharmonic Here Next Sunday The New York Philharmonic under Ieonard Bernstein will open the 1066-1967 Boston University Celebrity Series season with a Symphony Hall concert next Sunday at 3. The program will include Beethoven, "King Stephen" Overture, Op.

117; Copland, Dance Symphony; Mahler, Symphony No. 1. The Philharmonic, founded in April, 1842, is America's oldest orchestra and its history is inscribed with names from many generations of th greatest artists. Record Sweeps No change is reflected in the leadership this week among single and long-playing recordings. The Supremes are supreme again with "You Can't Hurry Love" and the Beatles are trigger-happy on "Revolver." The Billboard listings for 45's and LP's follow: SINGLES By ERNIE SANT0SU0SSO If you were to pin me down to it single favorite among today' popsters on strictly musical content, I confess I would be hard put to come up with a choice.

The best music to come from the new generation, I feel, is represented by Tony Hatch, the author of "Downtown" and several others and, of course, John Lennon and Paul McCartney. Strange, although the Beatles, who give succor to John-Paul and their creations, successfully market th duo's I feel they do not showcase the pair's tunes, in some instances, as well as other groups do. But the writings of John-Paul, be apprised, would be professionally palatable in any eia. Songs, such as "Yesterday," "Michelje," "Norwegian Wood" and others stack up proudly with most of the hits of past eras. And in their current ballad, "Eleanor Lennon and McCartney for all their rock-o-manics, have painted a masterpiece of word imagery about, a lonely woman "with her face in a jar." By George, they've got it! Ask me to name my favorite singing group among the "pop" voices and I'd have to answer, "The Mamas and the They sing as if they've done their homework.

That's why they're head, shoulders and beard above 95 percent of today's rock and folk-rock singers, You put on one of their disks their spanking new Dunhill LP, "Mamas and the for example and your ears are given a treat. They sing as no other group does. While most of their book is written by their own John Phillips, it is distinguished by tonal shadings absent from the usual rock 'n' roll trivia. 4 Even those listeners predisposed against "pop" would have to concede the Ps an originality so refreshing that the group becomes a must not to avoid. "I've always believed that Cass, John, Michelle and Den-nie have the natural talent and potential to attain extracurricular fame as jazz stylists.

If you listen closely, you can almost detect traces of the harmonic wizardry of the Four Freshmen. Nor can they be put down for no-humming a set of lyrics. Instead, the Mamas and the Papas interlace counterpoint, superimposing melody on melody, like frolicking youngsters with a double set of jump-ropes. On their current album, gleaming live with a zingy instrumental support, the group confirm the foregoing with the following, including AT THE INNER CIRCLE RESTR. NOW OPEN 'TIL 2 A.M.

As for me, let them wear G.I.

fatigues. I'll listen. Once upon a time, James Cagney was the actor most-often impersonated. But of late the mantle has descended upon the shoulders of Herb Alpert, the bearer of mucho mariachi. In fact, the carbon copies have reached the point where I have almost forgotten where the original leaves off.

Mention "Taste of Honey" and the Tijuana Brass' version is the only one, it seems, that whets the whistle. But Capitol records has come out with a truly delightful ape job on the Tijuanas. It's called "Al Tijuana and his Jewish Brass" and features 12 of today's current popular songs done with a smile and liberal amounts of cissel. Ethnic humor, performed in good taste, is like a tonic for the spirits. Since I have been on the receiving end of ethnic-based joshing through the years, I possess, I suppose, a large capacity for enjoyment of this type of comedy.

Al Tijuana, in reality, is Lou Jacobi, veteran monolog-ist and wit of "You Don't Have to Be Jewish" fame. On this outing he is backed up by "Pedro, Manuel, Pablo, Jose Miguel, Ricardo, Juan and This is lightweight, fun music and Jacobi's narratives, including his "dooby-dooby-doo" to "Strangers in the Night," are lightly spiced with Jewish inflections. it taste honey like my mother used to make.

Montoya was born in Madrid and is, as the Spaniards say, "Gitano por los cuarto costados," or, literally, "Gypsy on all four sides." This directly affects his music and his playing, for to play flamenco, one must have at least some gypsy in one's blood.

Herein lies the difference in approach which distinguishes flamenco from classical guitar. As Montoya says, "Flamenco must come from the heart." OCT. 14, 1:30 P.M. BACK BAY THEATER, BOSTSN OCT. II.
