I really like Rob Mazurek's work and am particularly fond of one called Galactic Parables by his Exploding Star Orchestra.

That's a very good one. I really like Skull Sessions and Return The Tides too.

Jimmy Smith - Bluesmith (Verve, 1972)
features some superb tenor work by Teddy Edwards

Smith's Root Down (also issued in '72) may have been more contemporary -- and it definitely made a bigger splash -- but I like Bluesmith better.

Revisiting these two albums via a new coupled-together reissue. Man, I sure miss this guy.

Stan Getz & Chet Baker "The Stockholm Concerts" Verve cd 3

002c8af3.jpeg

Nice accompaniment and pretty darned nice sound.

Bass – George Mraz
Drums – Victor Lewis
Piano – Jim McNeely
Tenor Saxophone – Stan Getz
Trumpet – Chet Baker

I have read so much about that tour, I think mostly in some book about Chet Baker. The music must be great and it has a fantastic rhythm section. But I heard it was almost impossible to make it happen, because away from music they almost were fighting, I mean two live long junkies with bad temper, and though Chet was playing better than ever since his comeback and mostly over here in Europe, Stan Getz was the bigger name...

I’ve only seen videos of these concerts that included backstage interviews from Getz. He seemed perturbed bc in a sense it was like he was getting upstaged by Baker in more ways than one. Chet’s playing here is certainly enjoyable.
