Barney Wilen "Essential Best" Venus Records.  Great great music. . . mastered in the typical Venus "way too loud" manner unfortunately.

Followed by
Miles Davis Bootleg Series Vol. 7 "That's What Happened, 1982-1985" Sony Blu-Spec CD2 disc 3

A great concert recorded in Montreal. Really this one shouldn't have been kept under wraps so long.

"Gary Burton & Keith Jarrett" Atlantic/WEA Japan cd

OC5qcGVn.jpeg

I think this was the first non-solo piano album I bought of Jarrett's back in the day. I still have the LP but this cd sounds better. I just love the tunes, the "bounce" of the groove, and Sam Brown's playing.

Such a great album - perfect musicianship, excellent sound, and maybe the best Ellington Tribute there is.

Damn COVID for stealing Fusco from us. This is my favorite CD of his. That guy could blow.

Thanks for the heads up. My copy arrived today. I'd give Renee Rosnes an extra gold star here for her comping and solo work.

I love it, especially those quartet sides with Al Haig who is incredible strong on the two ballads. The only annoying thing on my copy is that there are numerous alternate takes of the tunes. But the best Wardell Gray I ever heard is on a Xanadu album I think with Hampton Hawes live in a club, and maybe the very very first choice if I want to hear fantastic Wardell Gray is that Charlie Parker live album "The Happy Bird" . It´s so good that sometimes I must say confidentially that there are times I listen more to Gray´s solos especially on "Scrapple" and on "Lullaby in Rhythm" if I remember well....... 

There was an incredible memory I had with it in the early 90´s when I still had to make "naveta" (Pendeln ?) between AT and RO and would drive all night long (no highway then after the last town in Eastern Austria !!!!) and around 2 o clock in the night I was really tired when I reached the last town in Hungary before the Borderline and it was still those cassete decks in the car and coincidally it was that "Happy Bird" record with Wardell Gray on it and immdediatly I was "hell wach" :D

Una Mas is one of my favourite KD´s and sure my favourite on his 60´s BN. There was a time when I always did Una Mas live if it was a joint that otherwise was not strictly jazz, and catchy as this tune is, the audience , among them very much youngsters loved it.
