I suppose it fits this thread--the new Oliver Lake Organ Trio recording, Makin' It, is quite enjoyable, with Jared Gold on organ, Johnathan Blake on drums.

I've been wanting to hear this session for a long time now, but it was never reissued ... not even in Japan. Prestige did a twofer LP of all Zoot Sims sides for Prestige, but omitted that session! <_<

Not true , those four tracks were reissued on this CD : http://www.freshsoundrecords.com/record.php?record_id=333

Thanks - especially for the EP cover - just found out myself while browsing through the Blue Moon catalogue.

From the obi, this appears to be an organ date!!! (Turn your head 90 degrees to the right.)

Joe Henderson Meets Kankawa Jazz Time II: Blue Bossa Live 1987 <<< Amazon link

I'm not aware of many organ dates with Joe, save for a couple. 'Brown Sugar' and 'Unity' -- and Charles Earland's "Leaving This Planet". Is that it?? :unsure:

If this wasn't so damn expensive, I'd be half tempted to pick it up. Anybody here ever heard it??

2. Recorda-Me

3. Stella By Starlight

4. Blue Bossa

He and Big John Patton are on Grant Green's forgettable Am I Blue .

My favorite Henderson with organ dates are Unity , Leaving This Planet and Johnny Hammond Smith's Higher Ground on Kudu .

No - but Kankawa is a very interesting organist; I have a few of his CDs. He's also made an album with Gary Bartz, which I haven't got, as well as Soul Jazz albums with Jimmy Ponder and Hiram Bullock (not together; two different albums).

I'd be interested in getting that one. But it is a bit pricey from Amazon UK. Perhaps I'll see how much Hiroshi is asking.

Here's some 45-second clips of the previously mentioned organ date with Joe Henderon (from 1987).

Click on the Japanese text/link, just to the right of each song title.

Les McCann recorded with an organist at least 3 times on Pacific Jazz.

Just finished listening to a French LP I picked up in Vancouver a few years ago: Bud Freeman - Satin Doll (All Life). Bud with George Arvanitas on organ, Pierre Michelot, and George Collier. Not inspired, but pleasant.

I have that one. Nice pic of Bud on the cover.

Not a recording but a TV show. Jimmy Smith accompanied by -- wait for it -- Fred Astaire (!) who dances to "The Cat" in 1965. The collaboration comes at about the 5:30 mark, after a Smith trio tune and an Astaire monologue.
