Gather 'Round - The Tarriers


One Note Samba

Gather 'Round
The Tarriers
Decca Records DL 4538

From the back cover: Part of the explanation, of course, lies in the truly impressive musicianship they encompass – individually and as a group.

There's Clarence ("Coop") Cooper – he of the haunting voice who once was featured soloist with the famed Hampton Choir, and has subsequently graced so many radio and TV shows. There's young Eric Weissberg – Juilliard School alumnus and banjo-player par excellence. There's Marshall Brickman – triple-threat man with the bass, guitar, and fiddle.

To this array of talents The Tarriers have added a priceless ingredient that is uniquely theirs; an interpretive "feeling" for folk music that cloaks a song in infectious good humor or a sensitive emotional delivery.

From Billboard - May 30, 1964: These are not the Tarriers of old,  but the new and still good, and this is a well-balanced program of tracks, nearly like a night club performance, combining folk, novelty and ever a guitar duet on two sambas.
