  1. There is a killer arrangement by Bob Florence, that can be heard on the album "Treasure Chest"; it is conceived not as a tender ballad, but as a hard swinging medium tempo big band chart.
  2. Thank you for the nice wishes (especially sinci it is that "magical" 50th birthday)!
  3. Jimmy & Doug Raney Bill & John Allred Bebo & Chucho Valdes Terry & Gerry Gibbs Urbie & Jesse Green
  4. There is also this one: Ben Webster And Associates (Verve) featuring Ben Webster, Coleman Hawkins and Budd Johnson
  5. 1. Squatty Roo 2. Tribute to Louis Armstrong: When It's Sleepy Time Down South/Confe ... 3. Them There Eyes 4. It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing) That is the one I recommended.
  6. The complete(?) JPJ Quartet recordings (studio and live) have been (re)issued on Storyville.
  7. I see two albums with that title and different tracklists - can someone explain ... What are the (different) tracklists on these albums? As far as I see these are just two different editions of the same album.
  8. Budd Johnson can be heard to good advantage on Benny Carter's "Live And Well In Japan", a Pablo album of a 1977 live concert featuring (besides Carter and Johnson) Joe Newman, Cat Anderson, Britt Woodman, Cecil Payne, Nat Pierce, Mundell Lowe, George Duvivier and Harold Jones. Another fine album is "Blues A La Mode" on Felsted, that can be obtained as part of the Complete Felsted box sets by Solar or Fresh Sound respectively (the session is also on a Lonehill reissue called "The Stanley Dance Sessions").
  9. Yes. It is a live recording of the Quintet with Jimmy Deuchar, Terry Shannon, Freddy Logan and Allan Ganley. Sound quality is very good and the music is great!
  10. I am very happy to have found a copy of the 8 cd Mosaic box set "Classic Columbia Condon Mob Sessions", everything (box, booklet, discs) in excellent condition, for $172 (shipping incl.) through an amazon dealer (the current exchange rate of $1 = 0,8 Swiss Francs making this a good deal).
  11. I am approving this statement without reservation. Nash is one of the hardest swinging drummers extant. For me, if Lewis Nash is the drummer, be it a big band, a combo or a piano trio, it is a guarantee of a tight, swingin' rhythm section. Here are some albums I have with Nash on drums (all of them are highly enjoyable recordings): Brian Lynch: Back Room Blues Benny Green: In This Direction Steve Kuhn: Looking Back Tommy Flanagan: Beyond The Bluebird Lew Tabackin: I'll Be Seeing You Jimmy Heath: Little Man, Big Band Mike LeDonne: Soulmates Clark Terry: What A Wonderful World Tommy Flanagan: Let's Tommy Flanagan: Lady Be Good... For Ella Lew Tabackin: What A Little Moonlight Can Do Clark Terry: Portraits Rob Schneiderman: Dark Blue Bill Mays: Ellington Affair Larry Willis: How Do You Keep The Music Playing? Oscar Peterson: Meets Roy Hargrove And Ralph Moore Scott Hamilton: After Hours Tommy Flanagan: Sea Changes Kenny Drew: Falling Leaves John Lewis: Evolution II Classical Jazz Quartet: Plays Bach Ray Brown: Walk On Don Friedman: Waltz For Debby Gerald Wilson: New York Sound Don Friedman: My Favorite Things Roland Hanna: Milano, Paris, New York: Finding John Lewis Gerald Wilson: In My Time Helen Sung: Helenistique Classical Jazz Quartet: Plays Tchaikovsky Ted Rosenthal: The King And I Gerald Wilson: Monterey Moods Helen Sung: (Re)Conception
  12. This one is highly recommended too: "The Last Time I Saw Paris" on the Venus label with George Mraz and Leroy Williams
  13. I am currently listening to "Get Happy" on the Concord label. Sandke performs tunes by Monk, Mingus, Miles Davis, Ellington as well as standards by Arlen, Berlin, Donaldson with a great line-up of Ken Peplowsky (ts, cl) Robert Trowers (tb) Kenny Barron (p) John Goldsby (b) and Terry Clarke (dms). Recommended!
