Disc 4 from the Basie/Young set. The mastering on these is remarkable. Freddie Green really shines.

Don't have the set (no plans to buy it, I have to confess) -- but I do love that cover of the Joe Henderson box.

Joe, arguably "over-lit" (overexposed?) like that -- with the almost lens flare quality of the light on his tenor, and other similar "hot" lighting on him, his glasses, the collar of his shirt, etc... -- all looks pretty damn badass, IMHO.

Disc 6. This set just keeps getting better and better.

One of my Mosaics I spin most. Now I'm with a beautiful trio session of Farlow with Claude Williamson and Red Mitchell. Drumless.

These past few days have been listening to the Lester Young Basie set, discs 7 & 8; and then the Complete Dial set, mainly discs 1 through 4.

Just finished listening through this great set (for the third time at least). 1 CD per day for 11 days. I find this this is the best way to listen to a very large set. It's goes without saying, but Duke had some truly astonishing musicians. 

Now something quite different.

I've been bouncing between the Paul Chambers and Grachan Moncur III sets the last few weeks.

Listening to a Lou Donaldson album got me to dig out the Horace Parlan Mosaic set. Horace had wonderful, pungent chord voicings and had a unique sound - instantly identifiable. He could really lock into a groove. The Mosaic set has a lot of trio tracks and two wonderful sessions with the Turrentine brothers. That was a superb quintet - it also recorded under Stanley's name. There is some very lively Grant Green on one of the sessions.

While I think of it, check out Horace's solo on "Trees" on Roland Kirk's "I Talk With The Spirits" album. That album is where I first heard Horace.

Horace's rich piano sound is very addictive. This set led me to revisit Dexter Gordon's "Doin' All Right" album. Horace adds so much to that session.

I agree very much with your assessment of Horace Parlan.  He also made a great series of records for SteepleChase.

Working my way through the Clifford Jordan box. Too bad there weren’t any more Strata-East big boxes.

That Mulligan set IS good.

In the cover photo, Gerry is using the Selmer "Jiffy" sling, which came up in a thread in the Musicians' Forum section. So easy to adjust: a simple pull up or down, and it doesn't slip. I have one, and it hasn't worn at all. I wish they still sold them. Before that, my sling was a horrible thing with metal balls on a wire and a spring catch.
