Johnny Hodges '55 - '61. Disc 6. This is so good. Val's Lament with Russ Freeman on piano may be my track of the week.

Got a copy of the Oliver Nelson Mosaic box from an esteemed board member, and do not regret it, some fabulous big band writing. What bugged me a little in the past about his charts was his high levels of energy and brassiness, but if I listen in small doses, it's fine.

MS-001 Mosaic Select: Grachan Moncur, Disc 3, "Hipnosis" session.

As has been discussed elsewhere on this board, this Select is as much a Jackie McLean set as it is Grachan Moncur.  

It's the first Select I purchased, and still one of my favorites.  Always hear something new every time I put it on.  Today, it's Billy Higgins' ride cymbal phrasing and comping (with the snares off) on "Hipnosis"... so good!!!

Discs 4-6 have a great variety of post-war jazz, with some Be-Bop (Moody is great), some McIntosh-written hard bop (November afternoon is perfect for this time of year), and lots of bossa nova jazz.

Thad never disappoints.

Now moving on to disc 3.  Motor City Scene  is the least familiar to me - most of the other music here I have or had on vinyl.
