Hittin' this set. . . the transfers are amazing, makes other issues of this material sound "dull" if not muffled.

Nat King Cole "Hittin' the Ramp: The Early Years (1936-1943)"

Followed by Miles Davis "Miles in Berlin' Sony LP Facsimile 20 bit cd. This recording has rightfully been panned somewhat--the horns are often under-recorded, especially in ensemble, but I LOVE the way that Herbie, Ron and Tony are recorded here, the energy in these performances really comes through, and all are in fine form for Wayne's earliest recording with the group.

And because I haven't put it back in the shelves yet, I am re-spinning this one, Miles Davis "Vol.1" Blue Note Japan "24 Bit by RVG" lp facsimile cd. Over time I've learned to like these early sessions as a leader more and more, and the sound on these RVG transfers is very vivid and dynamic.

Charlie Parker in a quite unusual Setting with musicians who are more associated with the older swing style. Bird could play all kinds of music. But I think it was Norman Granz´s idea to get him in touch more with then "Mainstream" Artists or JATP Settings.

I'm sure it was. And generally the setting doesn't suit him, though on the faster blues I can hear the Peterson trio slipping into something like "Blues for Alice" changes behind him. Wonder what Charlie Shavers thought of that! But "Funky Blues" is where Bird's music and Granz's music meet. His magnificent "Parker's Mood"-style solo is just right in this context.

Now playing:

Wanted to hear the system rocking out and put on a blast from my past. I don't think Grace and Jack have ever been better presented and these were innovative arrangements.

Is this a similar project like "The Golden Number", which also had duos with various Artists ?

... in its Phoenix CD reincarnation. One of the best albums of a jazz soloist with strings I have heard. Byrd plays magnificently, Fischer's arrangements are superb. It's a shame Warner Brothers kept this on the shelf after it was recorded.
