"Giants of Boogie Woogie" on Riverside. Albert Ammons, Pete Johnson and Meade Lux Lewis. This one is an old white label deep groove and it sounds great. A few pops but nothing that matters to me.

Johnny Hodges - Rippin' and Runnin' (Verve) My favorite latter-day Hodges, with a young (1968) rhythm section: Billy Gardner, Jimmy Ponder, Ron Carter, and Freddie Waits.

I'm quite fond of that pressing - with its Sonny Lester reverb and Garrod & Lofthouse sleeve !

Sunny Murray - An Even Break (BYG) Byard Lancaster is so soulful.

Marion Brown - Three for Shepp (Impulse) I was planning on listening to this even before DaveS's post. This is such a beautiful album. Stanley Cowell's stride piano on "Spooks" is just amazing.

"The Free Slave" is a nice one.

Right now I'm listening to "Red Allen Meets Kid Ory" on a mono Verve. Before that was "Swing Session With Edmond Hall" on Commodore.

Michel Legrand plays Richard Rodgers - Philips (black label, mono).

From 1962, this is an overlooked gem that has not been reissued on CD AFAIK.

A big band lineup augmented with woodwinds, french horns, and additional percussion. Brilliant writing, lots of jazz content and that touch of Kennedy-era space age sparkle. Right up there with Legrand Jazz, IMHO.

Then:

Michel Legrand - Les Desmoiselles De Rochefort, Instrumental Version - UA (pink and orange stereo)

Michel Legrand - The Happy Ending - UA (pink and orange, stereo)

John Barry - On Her Majesty's Secret Service - UA (pink and orange, stereo).
