It is an adventurous "research journey" but also part of the fun .... and often it helps to listen even closer to recognise/distinguish individual musicians ....

Can only recommend Lord's discography for research. Have it for many years. The Investment has payed out for me.

You're right regarding "Jazz" recordings .... with "Latin" related stuff less so ....

Roots of Rhythm - Prince Onago and Princess Muana (with Chick Foster and His Quintet) - Jubilee (stereo)

Like Chaino and Korla Pandit, this is another example of willful self-exoticism.  Onago and Muana claimed to be African royalty; in reality, they were from East St. Louis.  This is one of two LPs they recorded, the other for 20th Century Fox.  I have both.

I'm not sure, Jim.  I just checked, and Oliver Nelson doesn't get a credit on the album sleeve.  OTOH, no one is credited for the arrangements, so it certainly could've been ON.

If you want to hear Oliver Nelson's contribution, you need to pick up the film version, released on CD by Quartet Records.  

Ah, there you go.  Question answered by our resident OST expert.  ;)

Thanks, @Teasing the Korean!

Dexter Gordon - Nights at the Keystone (BN, rec. 1979)

Glorious late-in-the-game Gordon.

Welcome! The film and album versions are completely different listening experiences.  The LP sounds like Gato; the film sounds like Oliver.

Unfortunately, the CD of the film version contains a lot of short cues with glacial pauses between. Even worse, some of this silence is embedded in the individual tracks.  It is like you are hearing the reference disc from which to compile an album.  It has zero sense of momentum or development.

So, I loaded the whole thing into ProTools, tightened up the tracks, and in some cases, combined related short cues to create longer tracks.  My version provides an infinitely better listening experience, but I was not paid, and I don't think it should be the listener's job to finish someone else's album.  Still, it was worth doing, in this case.
