Duke Jordan Steeplechase Releases

7 posts in this topic

I own 3 presently. Flight To Denmark, Two Loves(a recent purchase) and Misty Thursday. I'm also thinking of getting the session with Charlie Rouse and Richard Williams which sounded good to my ears. Anything else one would consider must haves? Thanks.

I'm partial to the solo recordings. The initial plan was to record solo versions of his composition catalog but sadly it was never completed. The trio with NHOP and Billy Hart are nice too.

I also like"The Great Session" with Dave Friesen and Philly Joe and "Duke's Artistry" with Art Farmer, a natural pairing.

And don´t forget Chet Baker with Duke Jordan where they play Duke Jordan´s compositions. "No Problem".

I consider most of Duke Jordan's Steeplechase recordings to be very good.

But two that have not been mentioned here are among my favorites.

"Lover Man' with Sam Jones and Al Foster

"Truth" with Mads Vinding and Ed Thigpen
