is that 'mmmmmmm....' good or bad? For me Ole is the least interesting Atlantic despite adding Dolphy .

I liked it. I only listened to side 1, so I've been spared Eric Dolphy on alto. I like Dolphy on flute, but his sound on alto grates on me.

Hank Mobley --------Far away lands---------(BN) dreaded DMM French issue from 1984.

 

It actually sounds very good with nothing to complain about. I don't have any other DMM discs to compare but this one is good and music excellent. A very fine later BN Mobe.

Those DMMs can sound pretty good with a well set up XX-2 cart !

Now spinning - Bobby Hutcherson 'Knucklebean' (BN blue label)

Cool Whalin' (Spotlite)

Some obscure material on this one. The Frankie Passions sides aren't even mentioned in Robin D.G. Kelley's Monk bio.

057948.jpg

I was at this concert.   Totally amazing. Despite it being fifty years ago I can still recall the thrill I felt on hearing Ornette. 

 My box is signed by Coleman and Izenson (courtesy of a friend who interviewed Coleman). I did get Chales Moffett to sign the programme on the night but unfortunately i no longer have it.

Is that the concert in which the Mike Taylor Trio were the opening act John?

I remember seeing Maynard Ferguson and 'Sky' at the Fairfield Halls. I hear that it's  future as a venue is in some doubt..

Cool that you have the original box set (and signed!). I just have two separate LPs, but the music is great.

Apparently so,but I have no recollection of the concert apart from Coleman's trio and the wind quintet..  Fairfield Hall was a regular venue for jazz back then and an easy drive for me from north Kent.

Played earlier

UK CBS issue.  Super session.

Not played in a while, somewhat lacklustre compared with Hamp's best on the label.
