Art Farmer – Something To Live For - The Music Of Billy Strayhorn. Label: Contemporary Records – C-14029.
The lyrical flügelhornist Art Farmer and his quintet (which consists of tenor saxophonist Clifford Jordan, pianist James Williams, bassist Rufus Reid, and drummer Marvin "Smitty" Smith) interpret seven of Billy Strayhorn's compositions. Highlights include "Isfahan," "Johnny Come Lately," "Raincheck," and the title cut. Farmer brings the right combination of sensitivity, swing, respect for the melody, and creativity to these renditions and the results are quite memorable.

The fourth in the Dutch Jazz Orchestra’s series of albums devoted to songs composed and/or arranged by Billy Strayhorn focuses primarily on music written by Strayhorn for the theatre, beginning with the few surviving pieces from the concise show Fantastic Rhythm, produced around 1935, shortly after Strayhorn was graduated from high school. Also included are four songs written in 1953 for a surrealist play by Federico García Lorca, The Love of Don Perlimplim for Belisa in Their Garden, three of which - Sprite Music, Love, Love, The Flowers Die of Love - - were previously unrecorded . As on the other albums in the series, the DJO is letter-perfect, transcribing Strayhorn’s music with remarkable empathy and awareness.
The Time and the Place is an album by Art Farmer's Quintet recorded in 1967 and originally released on the Columbia label. Although originally promoted as a live album the tracks were actually recorded in the studio and audience overdubbed. In 2007, Mosaic Records released the original live set from the original three-track recordings as the title The Time and the Place: The Lost Concert.

Something to Live For: The Music of Billy Strayhorn (1987). Blame It on My Youth (1988). It was adopted by the industry as a standard format for the album. Apart from relatively minor refinements and the important later addition of stereophonic sound capability, the term album had been carried forward from the early nineteenth century when it had been used for collections of short pieces of music. Sometimes shorter albums are referred to as mini-albums.
