I'm glad you're enjoying it.  It's a fabulous release

I'm playing

Kofi Flexxx - Flowers In The Dark [Native Rebel, UK 2023]

having streamed it a few times I thought it was time to actually buy it. Until reading the credits just now I hadn't realised @Alexander Hawkinswas so involved in it.

You are right. All those Savoy albums (I think others like the Charlie Parker album) had similar covers and I think I picked up some of them during my "learning years" as a teenie. They all are great and I think that they were the foundation for my understanding of bop. All of ´em, the Dexter sides, the J.J. Johnson, Fats Navarro, Mr. B and the Band, Lester Young. 

The only downer for me with those old studio records was or is, that you don´t hear the drummer recorded properly. 
I understood more of what Bird and Co are doing when I heard live albums like "One Night at Birdland" where you hear Art Blakey really loud, and it makes you to understand the music much better if you hear what the drummer does. 
I mean Savoy had them all, Max Roach, Kenny Clark, Shadow Wilson, Art Blakey and who was there, but you don´t HEAR them. I think someone recommended to me the Black Lion Byas Album "Anthropology" where you hear the band better.

It really is. I had not listened to this since I bought it and pulled it to find out whether I need the Byas Mosaic set. But it will be hard to gather the funds for it this year.

Engineers back then had the problem that bass drum kicks could throw the cutting stylus out of the groove. That is why they held back or were muffled. And that is how it became a standard in the recording business. I agree with you. Drummers and rhythm are so underrated.

Oh yes, that's a really interesting record...the sessions were a really fun process. (FWIW I also play on 'Eyes In The Tower', the Con & Kwake release on Native Rebel...a hip hop record with some very interesting production!). Thanks for listening!

As soon as I typed the question, the answer POPPED into my head!   

So I deleted the post.  But you were too quick on the draw for me.  ;) 

What's funny is that I spent about 20 minutes last night poking around on the web, trying to come up with a name that fit.  But it was only when I wrote down the question that the answer just bubbled up in my brain. 

Oh well.  I'm slow but I get there eventually.

Another recent retrieval from a shop's bargain bin:

20240106-211743.jpg

Blakey, Diz, Monk, et al - The Giants of Jazz (Atlantic, 2 LPs)

The album cover is tatty (both top seams are blown out), but the vinyl is in NM condition and plays beautifully, especially since I've given the discs a few spins on my RCM.

I've heard this music before via streaming services, but (as usual) it sounds much better coming from my stereo -- both musically speaking and AQ-wise.

 

 Here is more from this historic group from my collection(incl. your copy):

- Atlantic SD 2-905 The Giants Of Jazz - 2 LP set

- Joker (Japan) ULS-141 KR Bop Fathers in Paris - 2 LP set

- EmArCy (Japan) Giants Of Jazz In Switzerland (1972)

- EmArCy (Japan) Giants Of Jazz In Berlin '71

I haven't listened to Topography in a long, long time. It's incredible though. Hard to forget the first time with records like this, Machine Gun, Nipples, Karyobin...

It's a favourite of mine too.

 

I'm glad to finally have Topography in my collection.   Like I said, I get there eventually.
