This is not the best sound we have heard but to my ears, the sound in reasonable. The music wins and I cant say that the reproduction is poor.

Thanks for the response!

Erwin Schmidt - Dorothy's Valentine: I bought this after Georghe posted about the death of Walther Großrubatscher, the drummer on the date.  Based on this excellent album, he deserved to be more widely known.  Fans here of piano trios should check it out.

Milestone was a fantastic label ! They really did something for acoustic musicians when others didn´t record them. And all those albums they made, they sounded so modern, so hip and quick.

I think Joe Henderson did some of his best work for Milestone, he never sounded better. Even the more overproduced studio thing "Canyon Lady" doesn´t sound like cheap studio crap, it is a fine album and captures much of Henderson´s virtuosity.

All those Milestone Artists made some of their very best stuff during those years, Rollins, McCoy Tyner, Ron Carter, and of course Joe Henderson.

I think they also were scheduled for festivals as part of the "Milestone Family", because how otherwise I could explain that in 1979 in Velden we had so many "Milestone Artists" (Rollins, Ron Carter, Joe Henderson, they all were scheduled)........

Yeah, I agree that Henderson made some superb records for Milestone. Sonny and McCoy too -- and many others besides. :tup

they are wonderful ! When I was younger I had difficulties to tell from the record who of them is soloing, but later I learned to figure out how Zoot Sims phrases and how Al Cohn. It´s fascinating how long there collaboration went on. First I got aware of them on "Miles and Horns", than on that "Tenor Conclave". Too bad I never caught Zoot Sims "live" but I saw Al Cohn once with Woody Herman in a rare "All Star Small Group", a wonderful experience.....

The Japanese version with bonus tracks.  My heart swelled with pride when my daughter, who will turn 17 months on Thursday, heard 'Zoltan' and tried to sing along. :D

I have a quite different opinion. I much prefer the recordings of Joe Henderson on Blue Note,  Sonny Rollins on both Prestige and Blue Note. My favorite playing by Mccoy Tyner was as a sideman on Blue Note.

Different strokes ...

A smooth album, but that doesn't make it smooth jazz.  This group still swings.  It's a quartet session (with drummer Joe Ascione, rhythm guitarist Corey Christiansen and bassist Tom Kennedy) in which the group was so in the groove that they recorded these 14 tracks in just 4 hours!  Some nice arrangements help liven up these classic tunes.

There is some wonderful playing here. Sonny Rollins and Kenny Dorham were especially terrific.

Fifth - The only recording by this collective featuring pianist John Chin (one of my favorite recent discoveries), Tivon Pennicott on tenor, Stacy Dillard on soprano, Spencer Murphy on bass and the late Lawrence Leathers on drums.  It is divided between modern, melodic compositions and free improvisations.  The funny thing is that I haven't listened to the physical CD, as the Bandcamp download included several bonus tracks.
