Well recorded double album with one side to each pianist. All solo piano. Marian McPartland is the producer. Earl Hines and Teddy Wilson sides are  superb. There are perhaps too many medleys, if that bothers you. Definitely a feast of fine solo piano.

Laurie Pepper:  "These 3 nights at the Maiden Voyage in L.A. with George Cables, David Williams, and Carl Burnett were some of the most memorable nights of my life. This was Art's road band at the end of his life. They'd been touring nonstop for about a year, and they were tight."

Picked up the RSD release today along with the Squirrel (haven't spun yet, probably will get to it tomorrow). Mighty fine indeed.

Grabbed the two Gordons as well.  I have the Squirrel on a Blue Note CD, but this one was new to me.  Gave it a spin - very solid!

Agreed! Almost passed to wait for the cd which included two more songs but figured i would just check on Apple Music. I don’t have the Squirrel so I decided to splurge.

I think only ‘The Squirrel’ of those Dexter’s was available over here. Even that wasn’t on offer at my usual outlet. On the other hand, they did have 2 copies of ‘Stonebone’.

I didn’t see Stonebone on the list at my shop. 
 

how is that Sonny? I’m not as familiar with his Varitone stuff.

The Sonny is typical Prestige soul jazz of the era, driven by Idris’s backbeats. Good stuff !

Updated to say that I am enjoying the sound of this one. A good release. It will be interesting to cross-check against Mosaic’s treatment. Certainly trounces the CD set on the sonic front.

Those Spotlite LPs were treasures. So much until then unheard Bird. I love this album. Especially the first tracks with the Dizzy Band at Billie Berg´s ......, but also the stuff from the Finale with Miles......who sounds very much influenced by Dizzy on that.....

Any thoughts on the sonics for ‘The Squirrel’?

This is home cookin', right here. Hard bop with a southern accent. LOVE it.

Typica of the live recordings of the era is my best description. I had not heard the previous cd release so I can’t compare it to that, but I would say a bit flat sounding dynamically and like they took a mono recording and made it stereo (I’m guessing they did but haven’t researched it) but it is immaculately pressed.
