Is it possible I saw and heard Gary Smulyan with the Woody Herman Herd in 1979 ? I remember a very strong baritone player and I think it was he.

And about Dick Oatts, I think I saw and heard him in 1978 with the Thad Jones-Mel Lewis Big Band

Gary Smulyan's Wikipedia entry reads: "He studied at Hofstra University before working with Woody Herman."

For Dick Oatts it says: "In 1977 he was called by Thad Jones to join the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra."

Both were in the Mel Lewis Orchestra that I saw in 1989.

I told myself I wasn't going to buy this set, I've bought this material so many times, and I did resist the ridiculous price fo the LP set, but saw a great deal on the cd set and went for it. I did so because I read really positive remarks about the remastering by Paul Blackmore. This engineer did fantastic work for Universal Japan in their Prestige etc. reissue series, doing DSD remastering. So I expected good sound.

And I got it. Really nice sound. I'm enjoying going through these recordings again. This time around I have noticed a Cannonball influence on Trane I hadn't before, and this week with these and other recordings I'm impressed with Donald Byrd yet again. 

John Coltrane "Coltrane '58" Cds 1 and 4.

I have the 2007 Enja reissue (with a couple nice, long bonus tracks), but the original cover is a much more potent image, I think.

Where do you hear this Cannonball influence?

I hear it myself especially in some solos on the first sessions on the box. The way he structures what I would call the "scalar runs."

I'll give that a spin later.  Along with Double Take (co-led by Woody Shaw), that is my go-to Hubbard album.

Now playing:

I need to rip Dixon's Odyssey box.  Although this album would send my wife screaming, my toddler is calmly enjoying it.  :)
