Lab Overview

"Dave (D.B.) Shrier was active in the Philadelphia jazz scene of the 1960s. Sadly, his only studio-recorded work was a 1967 private press LP release, D.B. Shrier Emerges by the D.B. Shrier Quartet, on Alfa Records. But, as always, there is far more to the story. While attending the University of Pennsylvania in the 1959, Alan Sukoenig heard jazz emanating from a rehearsal room adjacent to the cafeteria. Sukoenig walked in during a jam session tenor sax player Shrier was having and the two soon became friends, bonding over their shared love of music. A few years later, Shrier recorded soon-to-be Philly legend Hasaan Ibn Ali performing. Shrier let Sukoenig, another fan of Hasaan’s work, make a copy. Fast forward a few decades, as Sukoenig was developing a project which would become 2021’s Retrospect In Retirement Of Delay, Alan contacted Dave about that original source tape. They had both temporarily forgotten that it had been stolen from Shrier’s apartment in 1965. The fascinating story of its acquisition the search for the non-existent tape is outlined in D.B. Shrier Emerges’ liner notes, but one major development in that search was the finding the original tapes for D.B. Shrier Emerges. Performed by D.B. Shrier (tenor saxophone), Mike Michaels (piano), Tyrone Brown (bass), and William Roye (drums), the original 5 tracks (featuring performances of 'These Foolish Things,' Tyrone Brown’s 'East,' and Miles Davis’ 'All Blues') return on LP." - Omnivore
