Andrew Hill - Blue Black (Test of Time, 2005; originally released on East Wind in 1977)
with Jimmy Vass (ss, as, fl), Chris White (b), Leroy Williams (d)

The title cut on this album reminds me of "Plantation Bag" from Passing Ships.  Incredibly funky, but also knotty and lopsided -- like a wheel rim with a flat spot -- all at the same time.  Fantastic.

Andrew Hill - Live at Montreux (Arista-Freedom, 1976)
Solo piano.

Hill made both Blue Black and Live at Montreux in 1975.  And Hommage too! ... THREE amazing records in one year.  1975! 

... Not much talk about what a great year for jazz 1975 was.  But it was!

 

EDIT: 
I forgot about Divine Revelation, another LP Hill made in 1975 for SteepleChase.  An even more bountiful harvest! ... Though, to be truthful, I might not rate Divine Revelation QUITE as high as those other three.

Horace Silver Quintet, "The Stylings of Silver" 24 bit by RVG Blue Note Japan cd

252184684299.jpg

This is one of my favourite Horace Silver Albums. Usually I listen to it together with "Further Explorations" also by Horace Silver.

and its Spanish RCA version (same disc, different cover):

Discos de vinilo: LIONEL HAMPTON: JAZZ FLAMENCO. RCA AÑOS 50 - Foto 1 - 44152655

By the way, absolutely nothing to see with flamenco, other than María Angélica's castanets... As an example, I've Got A Brand New Baby is pure R&B, Bop City Flamenco is a mambo...

Tete Montoliu featured on Spain, Tenderly and  Toledo Blade.

SF Jazz Collective, "Works of Horace Silver and New Compositions" 

Been looking forward to this one. Worth the wait.

I love the way "Lonely Woman" becomes a boisterous caravan serai then chills so gracefully.

Disc 3: Inspired by Rooster's search.  I found this a few years ago for under $40.  I think it was a low Buy It Now rather than a low starting bid.

That was not enough Big T. 

Jack Teagarden "Big T's Dixieland Band" Capitol mono LP

R-7591135-1444685021-3271.jpeg.jpg

Jack really knew how to pick and present a band. I especially like those, like this one, where Don Ewell is on piano and Ronny Greb is on drums.
