"Blues Eleganté" by Kenny Dorham and The Jazz Prophets, from their eponymous 1956 ABC / Paramount session.

Because it is just so very, very decidedly hip.

That's a great one!

My Walking Stick by Louis Armstrong with the Mills Brothers 1938......this track is a hoot .

Without my walking stick i'd go insane

can't look my best i'd feel undressed without my cane

Must have my walking stick cause it may rain

and when it pours can't be outdoors without my cane.

If you like that one, you'll probably like the Golden Gate Quartet's version from a year later.

Charlie Johnson and his Paradise Band: "The Boy in the Boat" from Hot Notes - New York Volume 1 1926-1929 (Frog)

Could have chosen one of several other Charlie Johnson tracks on this compilation, but this one stood out.

Okay the next standout track for me is "My Foolish Heart," Bill Evans Trio, the version on "Waltz for Debbie" (I listen to the K2 version). Just. . . so beautiful, so controlled and moving.

"Café del Mar", Michael Woods Out of Office remix. Great mix, with heavy bass riff.

(The original song is based on a composition by a Belgian "classical" composer, called "Struggle for Pleasure". Both it and the new mix can be heard online.)

Nat Adderley - title track from "Blue autumn", on Theresa, with Sonny Fortune, Larry Willis, Walter Booker & Jimmy Cobb. Had the LP a long time, but the other day, this stopped me in my tracks (again :))

Agree with Hot Ptah that Fortune is better as a sideman.

Don Wilkerson--Cookin' With Clarence from Shoutin'! session on the Complete Blue Note Conn.

I was caught listening to this at a party when friends came back from a cigarette break with my headphones on, my eyes shut, and my head bobbing. Someone needed to ask if I was ok. I said, I'm great!

Yes indeed!

You know you've got too many records when you can only get albums like this one out once in a twelvemonth. Must play it soon.

"Concierto De Aranjuez" by Jim Hall from the album "Concierto". Chet Baker's playing here I can only describe as haunting. Paul Desmond whom I've never been a huge fan of, is absolutely perfect here. Played this ALOT this past week.

The week is young, but so far it's "Eddy's Dilemna" from Lem's Beat with Oliver Nelson. The type of laid-back groove that always gets me.
