Bootsie Barnes was an inspired choice for Philly, then.  Larry McKenna also would have been.   

Yet I listened to their CD but refused to pick a tune because ... that would be too easy for listeners. :g

Ok, so....pick a town for further considerations?

Detroit on #13? Wendell Harrison?

Nope Detroit is not in the house on this one.

I have not seen a BFT this tough in ages.

Dude you have excellent perceptive ears. Don't worry about guessing unless you feel like it; I'd love to hear your impressions of the tunes and performances themselves even without any solid ideas.

Buck Hill could be somewhere in the mix.

Setting aside Percy France, he's the first guy I'd think of when I hear "local" - even if he did go on to international recognition.

Maurice Robinson(?), alto? DC guy. Is that him doing what I though might have been Frank Morgan?

As opposed to the one doing Sonny Stitt? ;)

No, never heard that name before.

Setting aside Philadelphia and St Louis for the two identified tracks (and Dallas, which Jim didn't fully identify the recording but named the star artist), the following cities are referenced among the remaining tracks:

Milwaukee 

Birmingham (at the time of recording, could also be Milwaukee)

Baltimore

D.C.

NYC

New Haven

Chicago

and what I am going to call Ohio/Indiana (Ohio for location of recording, Indiana for apparent long-term involvement)

And I just hope that HP and Thom (and Milestones) are able to join in ...

So, I'm thinking that something here is Mickey Fields?

The one I thought was Stitt?
