That recording "date" info is so jacked up!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Groovin%27_High_(Booker_Ervin_album)

"Stella by Starlight" was recorded on December 3, 1963, during the same session as The Freedom Book, which also includes this track.[1] "Groovin' High" was recorded on June 30, 1964, during the same session as The Blues Book, which does not include this track. "The Second #2" and "Bass-IX" were recorded on October 2, 1964, along with tracks that appeared on The Space Book.[1] "The Second #2" is an alternate take of "Number Two" from The Space Book, while "Bass-IX" does not appear on that album.

Seems like a very appropriate playlist for this coming week!

String arranger Jeremy Lubbock is an unfamiliar name to me, but looking at his credits I can see that he's quite accomplished. His charts here aretexturally lush and harmonically provocative. My kinda thing for that kind of thing.

What a gem of a record! The band appears to be mostly D.C./Baltimore in original and everybody can play. They are today referred to as "unknown".

Pianist Yusef Salim went on to make an ongoing cultural contribution, he is NOT unknown!

I do love Parker's two BN dates and play them all the time. I wish that he had gotten a chance to record a few more times before his untimely death at the young age of 36.

I really dig this Bill Swindell guy, sounds like he had at least one more gear than he got to go to on these records. should be at lest a little bit more recordings of him, but life is not fair.

I also dig how Parker's playing here sometimes speaks the same language as later Lester Young.

When I picked up Let Me Tell You 'Bout It, I hadn't yet heard Tadd Dameron and Illinois Jacquet, so the entire band was new to me.  Being so impressed by the sidemen, I once wrote Buck Hill and asked him whatever became of Swindell and Burks, but I didn't hear back from him.  Even though the strong Rollin' with Leo brings in some better-known musicians like Burns, Acea, Lucas and Hogan, Let Me Tell You 'Bout It edges it. 

Two great albums, though.  Parker cleaning up and suddenly dying after making such a comeback was a tragedy.
