Re: Back in Town
To me, Back in Town always sounded like a rush job, which I guess it was because the Trio had already signed with Decca and owed Capitol one more album. The album had some good songs, and I would have loved to hear what it would have sounded like as a studio album with the full Voyle Gilmore treatment.
As for bad career moves, the switch to Decca was a horrible move. They missed Gilmore, the Capitol echo chambers and Capitol's promotions department. The Trio came a few years before performers who were as adept in the studio as they were on stage, and Frank Werber had no business trying to be a producer.
