No Info in the liner what Quincy has to do on both session. At least he was on european tour in 1953 with the Lionel Hampton band - probably arranging for the 1953 session?

I’d say the 60’s is my favorite OP decade. I enjoy these records a lot more than the drumless trio from the ‘50’s and the Pablo stuff from the 70’s. This Exclusively for My Friends series is lovely and MPS delivered some top quality sound. These 5 dollar discs sound like audiophile records.

Black Renaissance [Harry Whitaker] - Body, Mind and Spirit (Baystate/Luv N' Haight, 1977)

IMO, the hero of this record is Buster Williams.  His bass is often in the foreground, and -- even when it isn't -- Buster's fingerprints are ALL OVER this record.  What an incredible groove and sound!

I think this one was meant to be one and it really sounds like a very, very solid Blue Note date.

I agree.  Whenever I listen to it, I'm surprised (again) that BN didn't want to issue it.

These are all great and would make one hell of a Mosaic.

I agree with you on more than one point, even if I am not a Peterson fan and never was. 

But I don´t like drumless trios since I´m a drum addict and the first thing I consider if I play or go out to listen is about who plays the drums. 
But Peterson as one thing and no drums as the other thing is double punishment for me 😄, though I must admit I heard some stuff where he is not so selfih as usual and leaves more space for the others. That´s why strange to say my favourite Peterson record is the one with the Singers Unlimited which is strange for me since I m no Peterson fan and vocal jazz also is not my most secret love. 

From the Pablo records I like mostly the Eddie Lockjaw Davis with the OP-Trio, that´s a fine little record. I don´t have others. Okay I heard a Montreux Jam once but listened to it mostly because it had Diz, Clark Terry and I think also Jaws, but one thing about Pablo often is the  choice of the drummers. They just didn´t use drummers that I like, for example  Klook,  Max, Philly J.J,., Elvin Jones, Roy Haynes, Tony Williams, Al Foster etc........

It's OK.  But not as good as one might hope, given the line-up.

There are several other Mann albums from around that time that are better, IMO.

Agreed on both points.  :tup
