Stitt plays some wonderful sax on that album! Roach is a better choice than Blakey in the Giants of Jazz, IMHO.

Wonderful ! I love that record and if I want to hear original bop tunes with a better recording sound than the original Savoy´s or Dial´s , THIS is my first choice. It´s a real Allstar session, I think I like it even more than the "Giants of Jazz". 

One think I noticed About during that time, when I just had started to listen to jazz: Of Course I knew Dizzy , but it was the first time I saw Sonny Stitt and if you look at them, Dizzy Looks much younger than Sonny, though he is 7 years older. And when I saw them playing, I thought "who is that old man who Plays so Wonderful sax, who Looks like someone who might have been close to Charlie Parker...….? Incredible, but true.

Agreed ! 

A few years later Dizzy played a great concert in NY, with an Allstar Bigband, and with a small Group (Dizzy, Gerry Mulligan, John Lewis, a bass Player, and Max Roach). I have the DVD and you can hear and see, how well Max fits in that set of vintage bop (they did HotHouse, and Tin Tin Deo). On the larger part, the Big Band tunes it´s Grady Tate on drums, but that sounds a bit rougher than Max, but that´s only my own Impression. 

To see Max in Action on that Video set of Music was also a nice experience for my wife, who doesn´t necessarly listen to jazz but said "that´s really a good Drummer"......

Dizzy does indeed look much younger.

Another nice Toshiba

All three Don Cherry Albums are great. I think this was hard to find during my youth. I somehow could find "Complete Communion" and "Where´s Brooklyn?" but the "Improvisers" had to wait until the CD Era.

Which is why it was in the first batch of Connoisseur releases. Those first 12 Connoisseur releases were chosen specifically because of their scarcity.

Going through a pile of LPS I purchased at an estate sale probably last spring,  Lots of Duke Ellington, Ella and Satchmo were in the pile I got to first that day but probably listened to just some of the Duke stuff since then   Decided to correct that today so its Louis and Ella the rest of the day.  Currently spinning side two of a mono  6 eye of Louis Armstrong and His Hot Five Vol 1
