Thanks for listening and commenting. Many of the older recordings are available on many reissues; I have pictured the albums from which I got the tracks. Here's the first half:


1. Kenny Clarke and his 52nd Street Boys: Royal Roost (recorded for the French Swing label; from The Bebop Revolution on RCA)
Fats Navarro, Kenny Dorham (tp) Sonny Stitt (as) Ray Abrams (ts) Eddie De Verteuil (bar) Bud Powell (p) John Collins (g) Al Hall (b) Kenny Clarke (d); September 5, 1946, NYC

Dorham plays the first trumpet solo.


2. Dave Brubeck: - You'll Never Know (from Indian Summer, Telarc). March 8/9, 2007, NYC


3. Bradford/Gjerstad Quartet: and me, me and you (from Silver Cornet, Nessa)
Bobby Bradford (cnt) Frode Gjerstad (as) Ingebrigt Haker Flaten (b) Frank Rosaly (d); March 30, 2014, Baltimore, MD

The unusual title is the result of the three track titles forming a little poem:
    Silver Cornet tells   
    a story about you        
    and me, me and you        


4. New Orleans Feetwarmers: I've Found a New Baby (from Sidney Bechet: The Victor Sessions Master Takes 1932-43, RCA)
Tommy Ladnier (tp) Teddy Nixon (tb) Sidney Bechet (sop-1,cl-2) Hank Duncan (p) Ernest Wilson Myers (b,vcl) Morris Morand (d) September 15, 1932, NYC


5. Yusef Lateef: Koko's Tune (from Into Something, Prestige/New Jazz)
Yusef Lateef (ts) Herman Wright (b) Elvin Jones (d);December 29, 1961, Van Gelder Studios


6. Anthony Braxton: Composition 138A (Ballade) (from 19 [Solo] Compositions, 1988, New Albion); April 8, 1988, Cambridge, Mass.

Dammit, I have the Bradford/Gjerstad. Haven't had it long enough or listened to it enough to have it internalized, though.

Damn good record, thanks for including it here!
