Art Webb?

Nope.  Only familiar with Webb on Stanley Clarkes' "Children of Forever".  Anywhere else I should hear him?

Waldron as a sideman. 

With Nathan Davis?

Not Davis, and that is the greatest compliment you have ever given this tenor player (who is also a sideman on the date).

Glad it's not Nathan Davis, he's one of those guys who only really swings at double-or-up tempos....nothing wrong with that, necessarily, but I've not known Nathan Davis to have been one of those type players. so...back to alternating between Google and work IMs...

Ok, let's try this one: https://www.discogs.com/ja/Klaus-Weiss-Quintet-On-Tour/release/10085461

The thing about it is that Mal Waldron is unmistakable, everybody else....not so much.

Not it, though that sounds like a good listen!

Ok, dammit, found it: https://www.discogs.com/Sangoma-Everett-Chico-Freeman-Mal-Waldron-Cecil-McBee-The-Courage-To-Listen-To-Your-Heart/release/9680455

Chico Freeman, there ya' go. David Murray syndrome, 8th note phrasing gets weird, and the tone is not consistent. When it's all good, it's all good. But it's not always all good.

You got it.  I stumbled into this one in an online bargain bin.  I know nothing else about Sangoma Everett, who is in quite the company on this one.  You still need to get #13!

and one thing on there sounds like Trudy Pitts and Pat Martino, definitely a period Prestige sound. Don't know the record, though, at least not on blind hearing.

That ID is correct.

In more ways than one...I like it a lot, whatever it is.

Trying not to look at your guys' replies.

So far I've listened to the first 4 tracks -

1.1970s big band. A Latin-spirited, driving beat. Keyboardist could've been more interesting. Overall - I like it a lot.

2.Kenny Burrell. I am a fan, just not of this cut.

3.Late 1950s-early 1960s feel. A very talented classically-trained pianist, maybe Bill Evans.

4. A Blue Note style mid-1960s sound.

More a mid-sized group.  You have the decade correct.

2.Kenny Burrell. I am a fan, just not of this cut.  

3.Late 1950s-early 1960s feel. A very talented classically-trained pianist, maybe Bill Evans.  Not well-known on the level of an Evans, but indeed a very talented and well-trained pianist.  Recording date is actually much later.

4. A Blue Note style mid-1960s sound.  This will be an interesting ID.  You have the decade correct.

Artist identified, but not album or cut - 8

No ID explicitly linked to cut yet - 1,3,4,5,6,7,13

I am most surprised that there is no sort of ID on #6 yet!

Indeed it is.  Wasn't sure if people would be familiar with Pitts at this late date.

Track 8 is "Tahitian Suite" (aka "Monaco") by Kenny Dorham, from his ABC-Paramount album "Kenny Dorham and The Jazz Prophets Vol. 1."

I now have this album as a Japanese CD, but originally had it as part of this twofer:

I'll always remember Trudy Pitts because I used to work in a jazz record store with Danny Davis (of Sun Ra "fame"), who I guess was a Philadelphia guy, and he always said the name "Trudy Pitts" like it was the punchline to a bad joke.

The whole Sun Ra crew have been located in the Germantown section of Philly for 50 years.

Oh MANNNN.

That's one I've been thinking about revisiting a lot, and never pulled out. If I had only ... then I might have finally nailed one (and gotten extra credit for it being a Felser BFT).

Oh hell who I am I kidding. I could have heard it two days ago and wouldn't have placed it.  :blush:

James Moody ‘At the Jazz Workshop’ (Argo). The track is called ‘Home Fries’ I think. Dave Burns on trumpet,  Moody on alto.
