I meant... musically.

Oh! Intriguing... I don’t recall having heard Powell’s tunes scored for jazz orchestra before. I’ve listened only once and should revisit in the next several days before weighing in further, but Ingrid Jensen’s trumpet-playing stood out for me first time through. Also want to spend a little more time absorbing the original material that Ethan wrote for the album in addition to his Bud arrangements.

Ryan Cohan - Originations (Origin, 2020)

I've only heard a handful of albums released in 2020 -- but I would certainly recommend these two.

They're very different, but they're both excellent.

 

 

Yes!  Especially when the package contains music as good as that Hampton Hawes disc!  :g

 

Yes indeed! Just finished listening to the 1975 Eastern Rebellion reissue that was also in the package, and finishing up with what prompted me to start the order in the first place—another purchase brought about by reading this board:

Now playing:

Impressive that such a large big band still sounds so open.

Now moved on to:

Sound quality as good as can be expected considering the circumstances but great music and the usual expert sleeve note essay by Simon Spillett.

Very fine Woody Herman with some great guest artists: Stan Getz, Dizzy Gillespie, Woody Shaw, from 1979.

I saw the Herd also in summer 1979, they played also some Chick Corea tunes then.
