Sorry for the confusion -- my wording was garbled. What Chuck posted -- the "this" I was referring to -- is the original sleeve art; the Polydor/Storyville art was used starting in the late 1960s.

Got it when I reread, thanks, so I deleted my message. I know I am on the vinyl thread ( and have vol 2 on vinyl) but the Storyville 2CD reissue is recommended, excellent quality.

Never seen that sleeve, much better than the Storyville issue.  Great album, I love Shepp shouting the time change on Trio during his solo. (Five Five!). Moses dominates on drums. Great drummer who doesn’t have a big discography to his name.

Great to read that someone gives some love to Moses. Indeed a great drummer who had an unhappy live since I had heard that he had been stabbed which affected his kidneys and he was on dialysis and died very young of kidney failure. 

I love all stuff he played, I think the first stuff I heard was some Dolphy with Woody Shaw from the early 60´s, and some Blue Note recordings, maybe with Andrew Hill. And he was Bud Powell´s last drummer ! His drumming on the sets that survived recorded from Birdland is a highlight, he together with John Ore where a perfect rhtythm section. And I like drummers who really play and stretch out, not just doin´ brushes in a trio context. Play it LOUD !!!! YEAH !

Moses was great indeed. As Al Fielder said to me, "man, there must be something in the water up there in Pittsburgh!"

Waldo's Gutbucket Syncopators - Jazz in the Afternoon (Blackbird, rec. 1971)

I have another record on that label. They seem to have a bit of a catalog, all of it being local/ Midwestern trad bands.

If one had the means and the inclination, one could probably get a really good picture of that particular sub-subset.

That might be fun?

I agree.  :tup  IIRC, Blackbird Records was based out of Chicago, and the catalog was later acquired by Delmark, Bob Koester.

Jazz in the Afternoon always makes me smile.  It's evidence that early-jazz revivalism doesn't have to be amateurish or necrophilic.  Because they sound great!

. . . And Waldo literally wrote a (if not "the") book on ragtime.

Now this:

Baden Powell Quartet - Vol. 3 (Barclay, France, 1971)

Dayum!  This music swings so hard!!!  . . .  IMO, this particular band might've been BP's best -- in no small part due to bassist Ernesto Ribeiro Gonçalves and drummer Helio Schiavo.
