Ah, the first of several tracks with Buster Williams. I have never heard this album before, or even heard of it. A really good track.

02. Untilted Sonny Rollins 1976-11-05
Sonny Rollins- tenor sax,
Mike Wolf- piano,
Aurell Ray- guitar,
Don Pate- bass,
Eddie Moore- drums.

This is one of the mysterious, intriguing tracks on this Blindfold Test, not on any officially released album but featuring a major artist. Where did you get this recording from?

03. Untitled 
Sonny Rollins Summer of 1948
Seymour’s Record Store, Chicago, IL
Sonny Rollins- alto sax
Kenny Fredrickson- piano
Unknown b and Unknown d

Wow, that is amazing! A late 1940s location recording in a record store, of a very young Sonny Rollins! Where did you get this recording from?

04. A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square
Russell Malone- guitar. Live at the Village Vanguard 2014.

I have heard Malone both live and on albums, but I did not recognize him. Is this from an officially released album? If not, again, where did you get this rather amazing recording from?

05. Bounce
Me: flute, guitar, bass, piano, Roland keyboard, and a Boss drum machine

Oh!!! It is actually you doing this! It sounds really good.

I have never heard of this band, or this album. I really like it. Thanks for introducing me to it!

07. Why Should I Pretend (Lost In Memory)
Buster Williams

Buster Williams- bass, vocals
Geri Allen- piano,
Stefon Harris- vibes,
Lenny White- drums.

Another Buster Williams track, and that is Buster on vocals! I have seen Buster Williams live, leading his own band. He spoke a lot to the audience, but never sang. That track  really fooled me.

08. Deception (Something More)

Buster Williams- bass,
Herbie Hancock- piano,
Wayne Shorter- ts,
Shunzo Ohno- trumpet,
Al Foster- drums.

I happened to know this one. It is a really good Buster Williams session. With this personnel, you would expect that it would be!

09. What Is This Thing Called Love? (unissued)

John Eaton- piano
Wayne Shorter- Sax, sounds to be alto not tenor. (Wayne's first recording.)
Ruswell Rudd- trombone,
Bob Prince- vibes,
Others not known.

Wow, did that one ever fool me! It is Wayne Shorter's first recording! My hat is off to you for including such an obscure and interesting track. I really like it.

10. Cryin' Blues (Gone, But Not Forgotten)

Johnathan Blake- drums,
Chris Potter- tenor sax,
Mark Turner- tenor sax,
Ben Street- bass.

Oh, I could not guess this one, not even when you said it was current. I have heard both saxophonists on recordings, but could not place them. I am not familiar with Blake, but need to go see him live if I ever can. I thought that this was a very strong track.

11. Oleo (Just Friends)

Louis Smith- trumpet,
George Coleman- tenor sax,
Harold Mabern- piano,
Jamil Nasser- bass,
Ray Mosca- drums.

I happened to know this one. I have always liked that album. Great choice. Louis Smith is not as well known as he should be, among jazz lovers.

12. Scraple From The Apple

Booker Ervin- ts (4, 7), 
Sonny Rollins- ts (6, 7), 
Dexter Gordon- ts (7), 
Kenny Drew- p, 
Niels-Henning Oersted Pedersen- b, 
Alan Dawson- d

Berlin, Berliner Jazztage, Philharmonie, 1965

That one is pretty much mind blowing, for the personnel on the track and for how well it comes off--better than some of these all star gatherings. I am really glad that you included this, and gave me a chance to hear it.

Joanne Brackeen and Richie Goods Mezzrow, NYC 2017

Now that I know that it is Joanne Brackeen I can hear her as I play it back again. But I could not guess her before the Reveal. I think that this is one of her more compelling recordings. Again, is this an officially released recording? If not, where did you get it from?

Thank you for a fascinating Blindfold Test. I will look forward to your replies to my questions. I really wonder if some of these recordings are not from official releases and that you have treated us to some genuine rare recordings from unusual sources.

Tom is undoubtedly king of the live recording trade arena, at least among the members here.  Sometimes I wonder if he does anything else, and that includes any work for, you know, compensation.:G

Another Buster Williams track, and that is Buster on vocals! I have seen Buster Williams live, leading his own band. He spoke a lot to the audience, but never sang. That track  really fooled me.

I figured no one would guess Buster would be singing and would not guess this one. 

Lost in a Memory

08. Deception (Something More)

Buster Williams- bass,

This is a from a John Eaton session what wasn't issued.

Johnathan Blake release for Criss Cross. He is Kenny Barron's drummer. It is a very good recording

I love Smith;s playing along with George Coleman and Harold Mabern.
