"Interesting but not essential," says the AMG review. Well, it's essential for me - a superb Ellington recording IMHO, and one of my favorites, for sure.  

That's the album that made me love Ellington's music!

Just spinning:

I assume you mean Cleveland, Ohio. That's along way from Jersey. I assume you were there for some other reason. The thing about getting into NY from NJ is that, depending where you live, it takes forever to get into NY. If you drive, it's a zoo and the train is just a royal pain. 

I drove in the day before, but I went specifically for the Haynes show.  It was my 5th time driving to New York to see him.  :)

Now playing:

I picked this up for $2 last week, with the few tracks from the Ellington Mosaic being the only other Webb in my collection.  Man, this band swung hard!

Good Junior Cook here. One of the sides where you can start to hear the Junior-Joe Henderson connection -- not as much as on "The Tokyo Blues" 14 months later, but it's there.

Yesterday - still concentrating on my BN collection.

Joe Henderson's best? I think so.. As it says on the obi of this SHM issue  "Jewels of the 4000 Series".

It is (positively) tough to choose the "best" Joe Henderson BN (leader) date .... and some of his sideman dates are probably even stronger .... ?

Always a pleasure to hear those 1956 Prestige dates with the first great quintet. I think one of the first jazz records I ever heard was "Steamin" which was quite available during that time, but with another cover than the original one. Things like this turned me to jazz when I was a boy.....

My initial response was that between some lost Herbie Hancock BN session or Paul Bley record from the late 1960s, I'd heard the gist of all this before, and maybe that's true. But continued listening is showing some subtle compositional constructs that those earlier musics didn't really have. so,,,game on, keep listening.

I am a big fan of  Steve Kuhn's recordings on Concord, Reservoir and Venus. But there are some Kuhn sessions on other labels that were disappointing to me. I don't care for most recordings on ECM, so thought this Steve Kuhn Trio CD would not be to my taste. The first time I listened to it I had a luke warm reaction. But after playing it a couple more times I found it more and more appealing. I now like it quite a bit.
