Found a copy today of this rare Monk 10inch Esquire - the Monk trios.

Sonics - superb, with the mono switch on.

Slide Hampton/Joe Haider Big Band on Spanish MPS, 2LP set. Another new one.

Dexter Gordon in the saxes. Stylistically not dissimilar to his later CBS album with Slide but even better.

That's one I remember. Never owned it, but loved the Pollock-style cover!

This is a really good record. I'm going to start looking for the Dover label.

Did you find this in Stroud ? Recent record shop there seems to be stuffed with 10” records.

Great 10"!
The release year of those Esquire is a mess on Discogs. I assume they can be found individually in Jazz Monthly , but is there a source gathering all the 200ish 12" Esquire  LPs release dates ?

No source listing that I am aware of - Jazz Monthly and Gramophone are probably the best bet. The Monk is from 1955/56 (from an RVG master).

One of Westbrook’s very best IMO.

Is this Dorothy Donegan ? I think I saw her live once, but IMHO she overdoes the piano a bit, very technical really, but maybe some pianists just think if the piano has 88 keys you have to play them all at once......, I like the piano more if it can also get out of the way, leaving space for the other musicians.....but if I here someone like Dorothy Donegan I always think I can imagine them as child wonders, beeing carried from one competition to the next, and then at some point they switch to "jazz"......


And maybe she was not presented were she expected to be presented, it was a small cellar club, fine but maybe not for her, she seemed to be a little lost and overdressed for that joint....... poor Mrs Donegan......

Yes, Dorothy Donegan on piano, with unnamed bass and drums. She does play a lot of piano. The album is okay.

Red Rodney featuring Ira Sullivan - Live at the Village Vanguard (Muse, 1980)

I dig Red, but Ira Sullivan is the one who really grabs my ear.

... Reading the liner notes, I see that three of the six cuts were written by Jack Walrath.  Interesting.
