How much did you pay for it?

Sorry for the delay, Mike, but I don't have my account set to notify me if someone comments!  I got it for for $46 including shipping, which I think was an absolute steal (it's like-new condition).  I've been compulsively watching eBay for it to come back around after I missed it for $50 something (and that was without the book and box), and I think I just lucked with an odd-timed auction that people missed.  Incredibly happy with the set and highly recommend it.

This is a terrific Select. I particularly like Dick Twardzik's half LP. Although Rowles and Fischer are also great.

Agreed, Bluesnik.  Some days you just want to hear a great piano trio, and this set gives you that many more options.  It is just consistent high quality throughout - not a dud track.

Was cranking "Die Like a Dog" box by Peter Brotzmann.   Lots of energy there!

Picked mine up this morning and was told they'd flown away. They only had 2 left. Am with Tubbs in N.Y. now. With Horace Parlan, Eddie Costa on vibes and Clark Terry.

Disc 2: I've mentioned some great prices for this set on the box-bargain thread because it really is a gem.  I only bought it last year, so I am making up for lost time by spinning it more lately. :tup

Listening to it as well—on Down In The Village right now, an excellent live date. This is a superlative set.

Yeah, I listened to it again last night: Mexican Green, Grits and Tubbs. I even like the Orchestra album that precedes Grits, with its two respective Lennon-McCartney and Bacharach songs, which is basically a pop song versions album.

Very good combination of both hands from Nichols. And with Art Blakey and Max Roach.
