  1. Body and Soul

    There is a killer arrangement by Bob Florence, that can be heard on the album "Treasure Chest"; it is conceived not as a tender ballad, but as a hard swinging medium tempo big band chart.
  2. Happy Birthday Tommy T!

    Thank you for the nice wishes (especially sinci it is that "magical" 50th birthday)!
  3. Father and son duos

    Jimmy & Doug Raney Bill & John Allred Bebo & Chucho Valdes Terry & Gerry Gibbs Urbie & Jesse Green
  4. Budd Johnson

    There is also this one: Ben Webster And Associates (Verve) featuring Ben Webster, Coleman Hawkins and Budd Johnson
  5. Budd Johnson

    1. Squatty Roo 2. Tribute to Louis Armstrong: When It's Sleepy Time Down South/Confe ... 3. Them There Eyes 4. It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing) That is the one I recommended.
  6. Budd Johnson

    The complete(?) JPJ Quartet recordings (studio and live) have been (re)issued on Storyville.
  7. Budd Johnson

    I see two albums with that title and different tracklists - can someone explain ... What are the (different) tracklists on these albums? As far as I see these are just two different editions of the same album.
  8. Budd Johnson

    Budd Johnson can be heard to good advantage on Benny Carter's "Live And Well In Japan", a Pablo album of a 1977 live concert featuring (besides Carter and Johnson) Joe Newman, Cat Anderson, Britt Woodman, Cecil Payne, Nat Pierce, Mundell Lowe, George Duvivier and Harold Jones. Another fine album is "Blues A La Mode" on Felsted, that can be obtained as part of the Complete Felsted box sets by Solar or Fresh Sound respectively (the session is also on a Lonehill reissue called "The Stanley Dance Sessions").
  9. SQ on "bass player" albums

    Yes, absolutely right!
  10. Tubby Hayes

    Yes. It is a live recording of the Quintet with Jimmy Deuchar, Terry Shannon, Freddy Logan and Allan Ganley. Sound quality is very good and the music is great!
  11. What music did you buy today?

    I am very happy to have found a copy of the 8 cd Mosaic box set "Classic Columbia Condon Mob Sessions", everything (box, booklet, discs) in excellent condition, for $172 (shipping incl.) through an amazon dealer (the current exchange rate of $1 = 0,8 Swiss Francs making this a good deal).
  12. Lewis Nash is a bad ass

    I am approving this statement without reservation. Nash is one of the hardest swinging drummers extant. For me, if Lewis Nash is the drummer, be it a big band, a combo or a piano trio, it is a guarantee of a tight, swingin' rhythm section. Here are some albums I have with Nash on drums (all of them are highly enjoyable recordings): Brian Lynch: Back Room Blues Benny Green: In This Direction Steve Kuhn: Looking Back Tommy Flanagan: Beyond The Bluebird Lew Tabackin: I'll Be Seeing You Jimmy Heath: Little Man, Big Band Mike LeDonne: Soulmates Clark Terry: What A Wonderful World Tommy Flanagan: Let's Tommy Flanagan: Lady Be Good... For Ella Lew Tabackin: What A Little Moonlight Can Do Clark Terry: Portraits Rob Schneiderman: Dark Blue Bill Mays: Ellington Affair Larry Willis: How Do You Keep The Music Playing? Oscar Peterson: Meets Roy Hargrove And Ralph Moore Scott Hamilton: After Hours Tommy Flanagan: Sea Changes Kenny Drew: Falling Leaves John Lewis: Evolution II Classical Jazz Quartet: Plays Bach Ray Brown: Walk On Don Friedman: Waltz For Debby Gerald Wilson: New York Sound Don Friedman: My Favorite Things Roland Hanna: Milano, Paris, New York: Finding John Lewis Gerald Wilson: In My Time Helen Sung: Helenistique Classical Jazz Quartet: Plays Tchaikovsky Ted Rosenthal: The King And I Gerald Wilson: Monterey Moods Helen Sung: (Re)Conception
  13. Barry Harris

    This one is highly recommended too: "The Last Time I Saw Paris" on the Venus label with George Mraz and Leroy Williams
  14. Randy Sandke

    I am currently listening to "Get Happy" on the Concord label. Sandke performs tunes by Monk, Mingus, Miles Davis, Ellington as well as standards by Arlen, Berlin, Donaldson with a great line-up of Ken Peplowsky (ts, cl) Robert Trowers (tb) Kenny Barron (p) John Goldsby (b) and Terry Clarke (dms).
