  1. Best Three Sounds Album

    Haven't spent too much time the 3 Sounds over the years, but listening now to "It Just Got To be" reminds me (in a good way) of John Wright's Prestige albums ("South Side Soul" and cie)
  2. Tristano school stuff

    Trombonist Willie Dennis studied and played with Tristano ("Chicago April 1951", on Uptown, or Ronnie Ball's "All About Ronnie" on Savoy). Trumpet: Don Ferrara? (on Lee Konitz's "Very Cool" with tristanoites Sal Mosca and Peter Ind)
  3. Donald Byrd

    When he plays to his strenghts (mid-tempo, mid-range), Byrd certainly has one my favorite trumpet tone.
  4. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    With the same (great) band (+ vibraphonist Al Francis), I think "New Ideas" (Prestige, 1961) is much more enjoyable
  5. Relistened recently to the JHB album (I really like Jerry Hahn's sound and solos on Gary Burton's Country Roads & Other Places): there's some really good tunes on it, and Mike Finnigan has a great, soulful voice (and plays some tasty organ to boot).
