Plus an interesting trio version of ‘Avotcja’, which first appeared on Lee Morgan’s ‘Taru’.

First time recorded by John Hicks as Trio version on his 1980 Strata East outing "Hells Bells" (titled "Avojca") ....

I only listened to this LP recently and was very impressed but puzzled that I'd not seen it on CD, perhaps it was and I missed it. None the less a great record.

there's a Japanese CD and it's also on this for some reason.

Only possible reasoning is RR's appearance on one of the Taylor tracks

Do you like this date? I didn't like it at all. The main reason I still own it is that I got Jones to autograph it. :)

It’s a bit of a cheesy period-piece in parts but I quite like it, it certainly has charm and good vibes, in line with Hank himself. Helps if you enjoy/have shares in Baldwin electric harpsichords though I guess (and I am not a fan).

If I was evr going to do an Austin Powers theme party I would have this one, the Schifrin/Sade and Gerald Wilson’s ‘California Soul’ cued on deck. :D

Can't say I know this album. The opening tracks lasted 10 seconds with me.

Air-------Air Time---------(nessa) original reissue.

 

this recording reveals something new on each play. The sound of this reissue (2016?) is immaculate as I think I've noted before. Dead silent background and superb dynamics. An audiofile reissue in all but name.

That really must sound good as, inspired by your post, I'm now listening to the original and it's sounding very nice indeed. Such a great album

L'Etau - Choses Clandestines [Disques Bloc Thyristor], LP3. First spin from this set in an age. 

some very impressive Michel Pilz on this, ably assisted by Tippett, Rogers and Cognard

I'm not sure if it's my favorite - it could be - but it's a very good recording.

Yeah, understood -- I think the contrast of Hampton and Fuller, plus the rhythm section's flow, put this one up there for me.

Now:

Don Cherry -- Togetherness -- (Durium IT orig)

JAS (J.A. Schneider) -- Volcano -- (no label, US private press)

only recognized a couple players, Tony Waters and Neal Starkey, on this Atlanta-area post-bop thing. Nothing earth-shattering so far but it's a nice date, clearly weaned on 70s McCoy Tyner albums et al.
