I love that disc.  Hank Jones as a solo performer was just as great as Hank Jones in a trio setting.  He was gracious enough to autograph my copy of this CD when I saw him at the Stanford Jazz Festival many years ago.


 

True enough. Hank was the first pianist in the Thad Jones- Mel Lewis Band and his solos (studio or live with that band are marvelous). Replaced by Roland Hanna who wasn't too bad either! 

Now listening to this fine CD:

Andrew Hill’s A Beautiful Day

Surely one of the best big band records of the last thirty years.

Now playing: 

Ibsen’s Ghosts by Joe McPhee.

I love his and Jen Bishop’s fat tones on this record. Much gutsier than the competition.

I am beginning to think that Chico Hamilton and Art Blakey were separated at birth and raised on different coasts as some kind of social science experiment.

Ha, that is awesome, from the playing to the recording itself and the fact that this is a 78 from '52. Bark for Barksdale indeed.
