The Mel Lewis Orchestra, 20 Years at the Village Vanguard (Atlantic)

Rarely buy vinyl these days, but spotted this at Manchester's Vinyl Exchange for £6 in as-new condition. Cheapest online seems to be about £30. As for the music, you can never fault this band, as far as I'm concerned. And I'd never heard of this album before!

Marion Brown - Vista - (Impulse)

How is that one? I've passed on it a number of times. Not sure as to why.

Gesprachfetzen it ain't, but then again it doesn't need to be. I would spend no more than $5 on it; I think mine was $2 and it's very clean. Super-mellow, but very nice. The version of "Visions" is an only-slightly-guilty pleasure.

Al Gallodoro - Gallodoro (Merri). A guilty pleasure. This is semi-classical and pop music - flashy and shallow. But I'm a sucker for great saxophone playing, and Gallodoro is pretty amazing.

As I said before, he came to my small town, Iowa school (maybe 300 students, k-12) around 1957. I was in the band and was transfixed by his playing.
