That band is great. Thanks to Analog Africa/Soundway/Strut for rescuing their music from obscurity.

As good as this and everything else from this album is, the one he made the next day with just the rhythm section is even better, IMHO.  It would be interesting to see them combined into a dbl album, maybe even mixing up cuts from the two days.  An all blues by Lester compilation could be a revealing thing too.

I'd buy those in a second.

Love everything about this.  The composition, the way they've transformed it into something very different from Coltrane's version of the tune.  The arrangement, how all of the musical elements seem to come together in an "interlocking" groove.  And, of course, the wonderful contributions from each of the musicians.  Each individual is WAY UP there, flying HIGH -- but they're also playing together "as one."  Just tremendous.

Seasonally appropriate too because they riff on "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire"...

If you don't like George Adams' singing, you might wanna avoid this one.

I think his singing is great.

Got hold of the VJC Carnegie Hall Concert by Ellington (Jan. 13, 1948) - fantastic! And that's the cue... "Fantazm" with Carney on bass clarinet! Wow! :wub:

Revisiting the 1948 Carnegie Hall concert and yes, “Fantazm” jumped out at me as well. Sounds like a missing chapter from the Tizol-Duke songbook. Can’t find the Carnegie performance on YouTube, but here it is from Cornell a month later:
