Cover is misleading. There is no harp on this CD. The trio is piano , guitar, and bass.

Some of this is really interesting, some of this is really not interesting.

No matter, this Alan Sondheim guy has certainly gone forward with many different things: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Sondheim

I also don't see any bed or any cigarettes, just a trio of a harp, a chair, and a harpist (is that Eddie Higgins?).

Total botch-job.

Oh man. I love this stuff so much.

It's like Buster's sayin' to the band, "Just climb on my back. I'll carry every one of y'all!"

Pulled this one to listen to more from pianist Wade Legge. He only plays on 2 tunes, but sounds good. Though Lars Gullin is primarily known as a baritone sax player, he also plays alto sax on a number of tracks here.51L6D8CgvcL._AC_UY218_.jpg

CD combines two LPs: Mighty Mongo and Viva Mongo!

Features a terrific band with Rolando Lozano (fl), João Donato (p), Jose "Chombo" Silva (ts), a.o. 

Thanks to Jim S. for hipping me to this.  Some primo "Chombo" here!  :tup

Good stuff all around, but those sextet sides really speak.

That Sestina is something else! Serial done right, with imagination, flair, and clarity of musical, not just mathematical, purpose. I can hear the math, but only as it serves the music, not the other way around.

Plus, that guy sitting at his manuscript while smoking...THESE are they types of guys Stan Kenton should have been working with, LOL.

:tup and thank you Mr. Fromm! One of the highlights from the Box for me. I wish there were more recordings though (the Sestina I mean). Apparently the original LP sold poorly, but still...

Somebody should make a chronological compilation of Jo Jones solos on "Caravan". That might be interesting...this one has one where I looked up and thought that Chico Hamilton come up and sat in.
