What a great album with wonderful musicians, George Duke and Tony Williams ! 

And a wealth of beautiful tunes: "Isn´t She Lovely" was also part of the set list of 1979 Rollins when I heard him live in Velden. "My one and only love" beautiful on soprano, also superb soprano work on his own "Arroz con Pollo" with some fantastic drum-work by my favourite Tony Williams. 

A very very good Sonny Rollins album !

Not for the first time I thought I'd give a recommended Sonny Rollins Milestone album another shot. Found Isn't She Lovely on YouTube. What a cheesy tune. Ugh! And that guitar!  :lol: 

Now I have heard contemporary live recordings of this tune that are better, but I remain convinced the Milestone albums suck except for the occasional track.

Goro Ito/Jacques Morelenbaum "Rendezvous in Tokyo" 

I've had this cd on repeat as I pop in and out and listen this weekend, experiencing the new Windom OS for my DAC. 

Beautiful music, with interesting arrangements and the lovely lovely voice of the lovely Paula Morelenbaum.

Sonny on soprano!?!  I've wondered what he'd sound like on soprano but didn't realize that he ever played it.  I'll be checking that one out!

Now playing:

This could have been reissued as The Joe Gordon Memorial Album.  The band on the Joe Gordon half, with Charlie Rouse, Junior Mance and Jimmy Schenk could have easily been a Messenger lineup.  Mance, in particular, shines.  This is just an outstanding disc; Gordon's untimely death was tragic.
