Black/Blue frame means a cdr from my experience.

Right! My Warne Marsh "An Unsung Cat" on Storyville purchased a few years ago came as a cdr with that black/ blue frame (and no liner). What's the story there?

Oof.  I now see a separate listing without that border with listings from third-party sellers. I'm giving it another spin now.  Amazon tells me that I purchased it nearly 13 years ago.  It's crazy to think how many concerts (hundreds) and albums (~2000?) have come along since then, but it still holds up.  It's fortunate that their brief collaboration was captured on tape in such fine sound.

Your guess is as good as mine...I think this was one of those "anonymous studio band" grocery-store-label products, both of them.

How did they figure out the band members for that first LP?

Today I spun three Eddie Lockjaw Davis cds I received from our forum mate here, Michael.
 
MI0002235604.jpg?partner=allrovi.com
First was an MPS cd of the Eddie Lockjaw Davis/Johnny Griffin Quintet "Tough Tenors."  Lockjaw really shines here, sparred on by Griff who shares both his joie de vivre attitude and his joie de jouer energy.
 
Then it was on to the Steeplechase cd "All of Me" by Eddie Lockjaw Davis. Kenny Drew is fantastic on this one. The arrangements are quite nice. The Danish drummer is exciting as well.

Then on to a Prestige twofer cd, "Streetlights." Lockjaw shows his mastery here of swing, soul, and imagination. I hung on his every phrase, there's so much skill and wit and groove in his lines and notes. And the secret sauce on these tracks is George Duvivier. His ever fingering is both precise and moving. He has clandestine control of the whole band. It's too bad that he is just a tad lower in the balance here than I'd like.

After this I needed to cool down a bit! A good choice for that was Diana Panton "To Brazil with Love". . . this is a very nice cd, Panton's voice reminds me of Blossom Dearie and Karrin Allyson, and her timing is impeccable. And she can evoke emotion with no melodrama at all.

And she'd be welcome anytime in Sexiest Album Covers. :)

I do agree that Steeplechase (not Storyville) with Kenny Drew is great.

You're right, it's Steeplechase, thanks for the correction. And it's Diana not Donna Panton. I need more coffee. (And I do believe I placed her in that thread months ago. . . I may be wrong.)
