I was not familiar with Dick Johnson, a swing band veteran. He is excellent.

I enjoy Sonny Stitt on varitone, but with a couple of tracks that are exceptions this is not one of the good ones.

Windmill Tilting, ordered on Amazon, just arrived from Spain.

Bobby Jones - THE ARRIVAL OF BOBBY JONES

If you're enjoying that LP, you might want to check out Jones' next album, Hill Country Suite (Enja, 1974).  I think it's even better. ;)

I've been thinking about ordering that LP too.  But I've hesitated b/c the price is steep.  How's the audio quality?

I justified the price to myself by using Amex points. It is an impeccable pressing with very fine sound.

Mastered by Gearbox and pressed by Optimal I think. They did a very good job.

I have an original and it's a wonderful album. If you can spring for a high quality reissue, do so.

Yeah, same here. Haven’t done a careful check between the two versions yet but suspect that there’s not much in it. Alas, my deck is out of action pending some servicing so it’s CD only at the moment.

I'm glad that Windmill Tilter record has been released, regardless.

David Murray trio - The Hill [Black Saint, Italy 1988]

a post by @ghost of mileselsewhere reminded me about this LP.  Murray was one of my entry points to Jazz and I hoovered up the the Black Saints. This takes me back.

Actually, I picked another one of Murray's albums.  He made a TON of records during the 80s.  Lots to choose from!

I considered several -- including The Hill -- but, in the end, I chose the Murray album that I've known the longest. 

Like you described, it was an album that left a BIG impression early in my process of discovering jazz.

 

Now spinning:

Cuber sure does make a fantastic sound on the bari.
