My bundle of these doubles has just arrived in the mail - amazingly fast. Will be spinning once the working day is over.

I'd recommend finding a reason to knock off early

The brass arrangements of the Henderson "hits" are gorgeous

Sadly, not an option today.

First impressions of the Henderson are very positive. Very nice pressings and cover quality.

Lovely Cape Jazz session with the unmistakable sound of Kippie, a nice companion to Tshona!. I am so glad Matsuli, We are Busy Bodies, Jazzman, Mad About Records, Soultown and Co.  are reissuing those South African platters in the past decade. I just hope they will reissue the records of Allen Kwela at some stage.

How many did he do? Wikipedia suggests just the one in 1998 

We’re there others?

oh, those strange album covers from Verve in the 50´s.... and the short and not very adecvat liner notes written by Granz himself I suppose.

There is no artest named, but from the hat and the tenor saxophone I suppose it´s Lester Young

How strange. Someone posted the record on instagram yesterday and I was also trying to figure out who it was. I also assumed Lester Young. I mean… it is a picture of Lester Young.

Picked up today in order to try out the ‘Classic’ series. Wow - can’t recall ever having heard a better version. Will be buying some more of these.

Leaves my Liberty cassette copy for dust. :lol:

Yes. That one created a buzz when it was new, even though the label was smallish and the artist not yet an established name.

Talent doesn't always win out, but greatness will not be denied!

Tone Poet version. Trounces the old French DMM copy and also the (better) Toshiba CD by some distance. Lovely issue.

Fine as the ‘Classic’ series is, the Tone Poets are worth the extra.

One can also hear the fine arranging hand of Cal Massey in both sessions.

Bet you don't get the poster with the TP though...always had a soft spot for this session since buying the DMM.

I feel a TP purchase coming on

Still got about 300 of them. ;)

Surprised to come across a copy in the racks as it has now got to be more scarce. Priced at the ‘original’ price too, which was nice.
